Patrice Bergeron is one of the NHL's 31 "Last Men In" candidates to make the 2019 NHL All-Star Game, and he needs your help ... to lose.

That's right: The Boston Bruins center openly admitted Wednesday he'd rather not participate in the Jan. 26 All-Star Game in San Jose. He has a valid excuse, though.

"No, not really," Bergeron told 98.5 The Sports Hub's "Toucher & Rich" when asked if he cared about winning the "Last Men In" vote. "I just had a newborn baby boy. He's a month old, so obviously that time would be nice to be home."

There you have it.
