Boston Bruins alternate captain Patrice Bergeron says he won't need surgery for any of the injuries he suffered in the Stanley Cup final.

Bergeron tore rib cartilage, broke a rib on his left side and separated his right shoulder during Boston's series that ended June 24th with the Chicago Blackhawks winning the championship in six games.

According to ESPN, Bergeron could also be close to a contract extension with the Boston Bruins. The two sides are working on a reported eight year deal, that could see him finish his career in Boston, a place he calls his home. Bergeron wants to stay in Boston, because it's a team that 'believes' in him.
