Las Vegas, NV ( - For the second time in the last three seasons, Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron was honored with the Frank J. Selke trophy as the league's best defensive forward.

Bergeron helped the Bruins record the second lowest goals-against in the NHL and lowest in the Eastern Conference at 2.08. He won a league-high 1,015 faceoffs, ranked second in plus-minus with a career-best plus-38 while racking up 30 goals and 32 assists in 80 regular-season contests.

He earned the honor over last season's winner, Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks, and first-time nominee Anze Kopitar of the Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings.
