Patrice Bergeron has won the Frank J. Selke Trophy for defensive forwards again. He just barely squeezed out that jerk Toews, but he won all the same. Here's the vote breakdown:

  • 1. Patrice Bergeron, BOS 1083 (75-29-19-8-11)
  • 2. Jonathan Toews, CHI 1051 (51-58-20-9-8)
  • 3. Anze Kopitar, LAK 364 (5-8-29-32-17)
  • 4. David Backes, STL 363 (7-17-20-20-14)
  • 5. Pavel Datsyuk, DET 238 (3-9-13-21-17)
  • 6. Max Pacioretty, MTL 156 (7-4-7-4-11)
  • 7. Marian Hossa, CHI 105 (2-3-6-8-10)
  • 8. Tyler Johnson, TBL 69 (1-3-4-4-6)
  • 9. Ondrej Palat, TBL 68 (0-4-5-3-6)
  • 10. Ryan Kesler, ANA 67 (0-3-4-6-8)
  • 11. Nicklas Backstrom, WSH 58 (1-2-2-6-6)
  • 12. Ryan O’Reilly, COL 45 (1-2-3-1-3)
  • 13. Ryan Getzlaf, ANA 42 (0-3-3-1-3)
  • 14. Joe Thornton, SJS 40 (0-1-5-2-2)
  • 15. Tomas Plekanec, MTL 39 (0-2-2-3-6)
  • 16. Rick Nash, NYR 38 (1-1-0-6-3)
  • 17. Zach Parise, MIN 31 (0-2-1-3-3)
  • 18. Joe Pavelski, SJS 23 (0-2-0-2-3)
  • 19. Sidney Crosby, PIT 21 (1-0-1-1-3)
  • 20. Sean Monahan, CGY 19 (1-0-1-1-1)

This is his fourth third Selke Trophy. The only person with that many more is Bob Gainey, who won it the first 4 times it was awarded. This should help cement Bergeron's legacy as truly one of the greatest players in NHL history. Or at least, the best at this. And that (among other reasons) is why we love him.
