For the sixth-straight year, the alternate captain of the Boston Bruins is up for the Frank. J. Selke trophy, given to the forward who who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game.
Number 37, who has been the B's alternate captain for 11 seasons, finished the 2016-17 regular season with 21 goals and 32 assists, good for 53 points. He had a plus-12 rating in 79 games.
It's no surprise the 31-year-old led the league in faceoffs won with 1,812, faceoffs won with 1,089 and faceoffs won at even-strength with 817.
Bergeron was second in the league with offensive zone faceoffs won with 420, third in faceoff win percentage at 60.1 and third in shots with 302.
He also won all 17 of the faceoffs he took on April 4th when the black and gold clinched a playoff berth with a 4-0 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Bergeron is up against Ryan Kesler of the Anaheim Ducks and Mikko Koivu of the Minnesota Wild for the award.
If he wins this year, it will mark just the second time in NHL history someone has won the award four times. Hall of Famer Bob Gainey of the Montreal Canadiens won it from 1978-81.
The winner is selected by the Professional Hockey Writers Association and will be announced on June 21st in Las Vegas at the NHL Awards.If you want MORE coverage of your team, check out Bruins Beat Podcast here on CLNS Radio! The latest episode is below!
