From Times Wire Services

Former Quebec Nordiques Coach Michel Bergeron is out of the hospital.

Bergeron was released from the Montreal Heart Institute on Monday, 10 days after having a heart attack.

Bergeron, whose condition was listed as critical for the first few days after he was admitted, began to show improvement last Monday and has been steadily regaining his strength. He has been told by doctors to rest for the next several weeks, after which his status will be reevaluated.
