Blackhawks' Toews gets Selke Award win over Bruins' Bergeron for best defensive forward

CHICAGO - Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews has won the Frank J. Selke Trophy for the NHL's best defensive forward, and Paul MacLean of the Ottawa Senators is the league's coach of the year.

The 25-year-old Toews was third in the NHL with a plus-28 rating in 47 games in the regular season. The centre also was a finalist for the award after the 2010-11 season.

Boston Bruins centre Patrice Bergeron also was up the award. Toews and Bergeron are currently competing in the Stanley Cup finals.

The Lady Byng trophy for the NHL's most sportsmanlike player went to Tampa Bay forward Martin St. Louis for the third time in four seasons.

Ray Shero of the Pittsburgh Penguins is the general manager of the year, and Minnesota Wild goalie Josh Harding won the NHL's Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy for perseverance.

Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
