Bergeron Named King Clancy Trophy Winner

CHICAGO, IL -- The NHL announced today, June 14, that Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron has been named the winner of the 2013 King Clancy Trophy. The King Clancy Trophy is awarded annually to an NHL player who best exemplifies leadership qualities both on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community.

“It means a lot, it's a huge honor. Obviously, anytime you have the chance to help out the community, it's something that speaks a lot to me and I want to do,” said Bergeron. “Like I said it’s a huge honor, and I'm very happy about it. I like to lead by example and just work as hard as I can on and off the ice and help whoever I can.”

Bergeron has epitomized leadership both and on off the ice. The 27-year-old has notched two game winning goals this postseason, including a Game 7 overtime series-clinching goal against the Toronto Maple Leafs in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal. Recognized as one of the strongest two-way forwards in the league, Bergeron was named a Selke Trophy finalist for the second straight year after winning the award last year and finished the regular season ranked second in assists (22), tied for third in points (32), and tied for fourth in goals (10) on the Bruins. Bergeron finished the regular season leading the NHL in faceoff win percentage at 62.1% (549/884) and is currently ranked first in this postseason, winning puck drops at a 61.6% rate (237/385).

Bergeron’s community contributions away from the rink have been consistent since joining the NHL in 2004. The Bruins Alternate Captain has been involved in countless charitable endeavors over the years, including the development of the Patrice’s Pals program, which brings patients from local hospitals and others children’s organizations to TD Garden to experience a Bruins home game. Children invited to the game watch the Bruins sit in the official Patrice’s Pals luxury suite and meet Bergeron postgame to sign autographs and take pictures.

To date, children from Children's Hospital Boston, the Cam Neely Foundation, Franciscan Hospital for Children, Joslin Diabetes Center, Massachusetts General Hospital for Children, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Big Brother and Big Sister of Massachusetts Bay, Oak Square YMCA, Shriners Hospital, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, among others, have all participated in Patrice's Pals.

The winner of the King Clancy Trophy was chosen by select members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association and the NHL Broadcasters' Association.
