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

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
