Patrice Bergeron was named the 2017 Frank J. Selke Award winner on Wednesday at the NHL Awards in Las Vegas.

For the fourth-straight year, Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron has been named the winner of the 2017 Frank J. Selke Trophy. The award is given to the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game.

He beat out Anaheim Ducks forward Ryan Kessler and Minnesota Wild forward Mikko Koivu in a poll of the Professional Hockey Writers Association. 

This award ties Bergeron with Hall of Famer Bob Gainey, who played for the Montreal Canadiens, for most Selke wins in NHL history. Gainey won the award in 1978, 1979, 1980 and 1981.

To finish out the 2016-17 season, the forward collected 21 goals and 32 assists, good for 53 points. He had 24 penalty minutes and a plus-12 rating in 79 games.

He also led the league in faceoffs taken with 1,812, faceoffs won with 1,089, even-strength faceoffs won with 817, even-strength win percentage which was 62.3, neuteral zone faceoffs won with 324 and neuteral zone faceoff win percentage which was 63.7

Bergeron has served as the alternative captain of the black and gold for 11 years. He also played through the season with a sports hernia that he underwent surgery for after the playoffs concluded for Boston.
