Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron was awarded the Selke Trophy on Wednesday night at the NHL Awards. The trophy is given to the player who excels at defensive impacts of the game.
The award marks Bergeron’s fourth Selke Trophy. He has won it in 2012, 2014 and 2015 — all while playing for the Bruins.
Bergeron has spent all of his 13 seasons in the NHL with the Bruins. In the 2016-17 season, he gave 54 hits at even strength and 47 blocks at even strength. This year, he also amassed 65 takeaways — two fewer than 2015-16.
