Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli released the following statement at 3 p.m. today about the status of center Patrice Bergeron, who left Saturday’s game after a collision with Carolina’s Dennis Seidenberg.
“After first being treated at the TD Banknorth Garden yesterday, Patrice was diagnosed as having sustained a concussion, and was admitted to Mass General Hospital under the care of Dr. Peter Asnis.
Since being admitted to MGH Patrice has undergone extensive testing, and all of the results have come back normal. When examined this morning, his condition had improved greatly over last night, and he was released from the hospital. There is no timetable for his return to the ice.”
