Bruins' Bergeron, Blackhawks' Toews, Kings' Kopitar are Selke finalists

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Patrice Bergeron, Jonathan Toews and Anze Kopitar are the finalists for the NHL's Selke Trophy, awarded to the best defensive forward.

Toews, captain of the Chicago Blackhawks, edged out Bergeron of the Boston Bruins for the honour last year.

Kopitar is the first player in Los Angeles Kings franchise history to be a Selke finalist.

Bergeron, from Quebec City, led the league in faceoff wins this season.

Toews, a Winnipeg native, is a finalist for the third time in four years.

Quote of the Day

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.

— Forward Scott Hartnell on his upcoming season with the Columbus Blue Jackets
