Bergevin, Murray, Shero announced as finalists to be NHL general manager of the year

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Marc Bergevin of the Montreal Canadiens, Bob Murray of the Anaheim Ducks and Ray Shero of the Pittsburgh Penguins were named Monday as first-time finalists to be the NHL's general manager of the year.

In his first season as an NHL general manager, Bergevin guided the Canadiens to the Northeast Division title. Montreal was also the league's most improved club this season, earning the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference.

Murray oversaw a Ducks team that had its best regular-season finish. Anaheim won the Pacific Division winner and No. 2 seed in the Western Conference.

Shero helped lead the Penguins to their first Atlantic Division title since 2008 and the No. 1 seed in the East. Key additions solidified Pittsburgh's roster.

Voting for the award was conducted among the league's 30 general managers and a panel of NHL executives, print and broadcast media. The winner will be announced during the Stanley Cup finals.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
