Music lessons before a return to field hockey for Patrice Bergeron! https://t.co/H1Ms92L54K

Field hockey is over for Patrice Bergeron. Well, almost. The Quebecer will be playing in the Gagné-Bergeron Pro-Am at Quebec City’s Centre Vidéotron this weekend. After that, he’ll be as free as a bird and able to enjoy his retirement.
Bergeron spoke to Le Soleil ‘s Mikaël Lalancette about what he plans to do in his well-deserved retirement.
It may surprise you, but Bergeron loves to play music! That’s what he told Lalancette.
He used to play piano when he was younger, but stopped taking lessons because of his field hockey career, which was starting to take up more space in his life. Now that field hockey is out of the picture, he’ll have all the time in the world to practice.
In fact, Bergeron doesn’t yet know whether he’ll concentrate on piano or guitar. We’d love to hear him play one day!
They say field hockey’s over, but it’s only over for now.
He’d even like to take some business courses to pursue some of the many dreams on his bucket list.
But for now, business won’t have anything to do with sport. Number 37 doesn’t feel ready to get back into the business, at least not for the next few years anyway.
– Simply magnificent.
