Boston Bruins president Cam Neely confirmed Friday that center Patrice Bergeron has been released from the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

Bergeron had gone to the hospital for observation after playing in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final Monday. As of Wednesday afternoon, he was still in the hospital.

"He's doing well. He's recovering," Neely said during a press conference on the state of the team at TD Garden. "Obviously with what Patrice went through to play Game 6, and then what happened to him during Game 6, certainly speaks volumes about Patrice as an athlete and as a human being that has a compete level that we love to have wearing our jersey. So he's been a big fabric of our organization for a number of years, and I know he's recovering and doing well and will have a full recovery."

Bergeron was limited to just one period of play and a couple shifts in the second because of injury in Game 5 against the Chicago Blackhawks last Saturday. It was revealed later he had a broken rib and some cartilage damage. He received a shot of a freezing agent in order to play Game 6, and he separated his shoulder during the Blackhawks' 3-2 Cup-clinching win. It was later discovered Bergeron also had a small puncture in his lung.
