Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron has captured the Frank J. Selke Trophy in recognition of "the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game," as selected by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association.

Bergeron garnered 1,283 voting points, including 112 first-place votes among the 137 cast, to finish ahead of second-place Anze Kopitar of the Los Angeles Kings (840 points). Bergeron won the Selke for the second time in three years. He finished second to this year's other finalist, Chicago's Jonathan Toews, in 2013.

Bergeron led the NHL in face-off wins with 1,015 -- the most by any player in the past seven seasons -- as the Bruins posted the best defensive record in the Eastern Conference and second-best in the League overall (2.08 goals per game). He ranked second in the NHL in plus-minus with a career-high +38 rating and led all Bruins forwards in average ice time playing shorthanded (1:57).
