Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron is again a finalist for the NHL Selke Award - the award for the best defensive forward in the game. Bergeron won the Selke two years ago and finished as runner-up last year.

Many people around the NHL think Bergeron is even more deserving of the award this year. He won 1,015 faceoffs this season, the most won in the NHL in seven years. He is second in the league in the plus/minus stat with a plus-38. On top of all that, Bergeron scored 30 goals and has 32 assists for 62 points.

The two other finalists for the Selke Award are Anze Kopitar from the LA Kings and Jonathan Toews of Chicago.
