As of now, two people will dictate how much ice time Patrice Bergeron gets in the preseason: Claude Julien and the center himself.
"Right now, he's definitely done with the doctors," Julien said. "Everything is at 100 percent in that regard. Now it becomes a situation where we've got to put him in games and he's got to feel his way through. Part of it will be him. The other part will be what I see from him."
