Former NHL defenseman moved on to NASCAR, baseball

august 15, 2019
Marc-Andre Bergeron played for seven teams over the course of his 10-year NHL career. After playing his last year in the NHL with the Carolina Hurricanes in 2012-2013, he spent three years in Switzerland and then one final year in the AHL before hanging up his skates. But he wasn't done with sports. In a recent article in The Hockey News, Bergeron explains that a meeting with Louis-Phillipe and Jean-Francois Dumoulin, brothers and two of the top drivers in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series, led him to his next venture.

Bergeron is now part owner of Dumoulin Competition and is involved in finding investors and reaching out to partners to help power the team, while also serving as the primary owner of the No. 47 Weathertech Canada/Bellemare/Eibach Dodge driven by L.P. Dumoulin. 47 is the same number Bergeron wore in the NHL. Bergeron explains he was always a car guy, and with him and the Dumoulin brothers all being from Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, the partnership and friendship were very natural.

Bergeron is also co-owner of the Trois-Rivieres Aigles baseball team, a member of the Canadian-American Association of Professional Baseball. He hoisted a championship with the Aigles in 2015.

“I bought (the Aigles) seven years ago because I wanted to, once I was done playing hockey, to be in business and that was the plan,” Bergeron told THN. “I’m loving it. I’m happy that I did it.”
