Bergeron Named Selke Trophy Finalist
NHL Names Patrice Bergeron a 2014 Selke Trophy Finalist


BOSTON, MA -- The NHL announced today, April 24, that Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron has been named one of three finalists for the 2014 Frank J. Selke Trophy. The Selke Trophy is awarded annually "to the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game.” The other finalists are Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks and Anze Kopitar of the Los Angeles Kings.

Bergeron completed the 2014 campaign ranked third in the league in faceoff percentage, winning puck drops at a 58.6% rate (1,015-for-1,732), with his 1,015 faceoff wins leading the NHL. Often charged with the task of shutting down the oppositions top line in both even strength and shorthanded situations, the centerman finished second in the league in plus/minus rating at +38, behind teammate David Krejci (+39). Bergeron finished 66 of 80 regular season games played with an even or positive rating. 

Serving as one of the Bruins primary penalty killers, Bergeron was critical to the B's shorthanded special teams success, helping the Black & Gold finish eighth in the league on the PK (83.6%).  Offensively, Bergeron enjoyed  a very successful season, finishing tied for first on the Bruins in goals (30), second in points (62) and tied for third in assists (32).

Bergeron won the award for the first time following the 2011-12 season and this marks the third consecutive year Bergeron has been a finalist.

Members of the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association submitted ballots for the Selke Trophy at the conclusion of the regular season, with the top three vote-getters designated as finalists.
