Bruins center Bergeron joins Swiss club Lugano
Lugano says on its website that the 27-year-old Canadian will arrive in Switzerland "in the coming days" after private benefactors helped fund his contract.
Bergeron is a member of the "Triple Gold" club of players who have been on teams winning the Stanley Cup, with the Bruins in 2011, the Winter Olympics and the world championships.
