WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Boston Bruins assistant captain Patrice Bergeron will get stitches to close up a cut on his chin and X-rays at a local hospital after getting hit by a puck at practice Tuesday.

Bergeron was struck in the chin by a loose puck he was chasing along the half wall during a drill. He dropped his left glove, grabbed his right side of his face and quickly skated off the ice followed by team trainers.
