Bergeron won't travel to Columbus for Thursday opener
The Boston Bruins will open the season without their No. 1 center.
Defenseman Adam McQuaid is also currently day to day with an upper-body injury and - like Bergeron - will remain in Boston.
In addition, defenseman Kevan Miller underwent surgery to repair a fracture in his left hand Tuesday and is expected to miss six weeks as he recovers.
Following Thursday's contest, the Bruins head to Toronto, where they will tangle with the Maple Leafs.
