Bruins' Bergeron skates for the first time since concussion
BOSTON (AP) - Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron has skated for the first time since he sustained a severe concussion in a game earlier this season.
General Manager Peter Chiarelli said Bergeron spent about 10 minutes skating lightly around the team's practice rink Sunday. While calling the skate a "good step forward," Chiarelli indicated the 22-year-old is not close to returning to action.
Bergeron was placed on the Bruins' long-term injured reserve list after being checked into the boards face-first by Randy Jones of the Philadelphia Flyers in the Oct. 27 game in Boston.
Bergeron was diagnosed with a Grade 3 concussion and also sustained a broken nose.
