The Bruins announced their regular season award winners before the regular season finale with the Senators Sunday night. Patrice Bergeron  was the recipient of the Eddie Shore Award (exceptional hustle and determination, chosen by the ‘Gallery Gods’) as well as the Elizabeth Dufresne Trophy (outstanding performance during home games, determined by the Boston Chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers Association).
Gregory Campbell  was selected for the John P. Bucyk Award (greatest off-ice charitable contributions, chosen by John Bucyk); and Tuukka Rask  (First Star), Bergeron (Second Star) and Tyler Seguin  (Third Star) were named the Bruins Three Stars (top performers at home over the course of the season).
Eddie Shore Award and Elizabeth Dufresne Trophy
Bergeron, the team’s alternate captain to Zdeno Chara , was also selected by the ‘Gallery Gods’ as the Eddie Shore Award winner for demonstrating exceptional hustle and determination throughout the 2013 campaign. The reining Selke Trophy winner currently leads the Bruins with a +25 rating (5th NHL ), is second in assists (22) and is tied for fourth in points with 32 (10-22). The Bruins centerman also leads the NHL  in faceoff percentage, winning puck drops at a 61.9-percent clip.
In addition to the Eddie Shore Award, the BPHWA has selected Bergeron as the Elizabeth Dufresne Trophy recipient for his outstanding performance during Bruins home games this season. At TD Garden this year, Bergeron has notched eight goals and 13 assists for 21 points. The forward’s +20 rating and 66.8% (280/419) faceoff percentage in Boston, leads all Bruins players.
John P. Bucyk Award
Gregory Campbell  has been an active participant in the Boston Bruins  off-ice charitable events in this years condensed NHL  season. Campbell has spent many of his rare off days making community visits throughout the Greater Boston area, including visits to the Charlestown Boys & Girls Club, Home for Little Wanderers and was a one of the team’s participants in their annual ‘Cuts for a Cause’ event.
Bruins Three Stars
First Star Tuukka Rask  compiled a record of 12-4-2 in 18 home games this season with a home GAA of 1.85 and save percentage of .935. The B’s Second Star, Patrice Bergeron , accumulated a team-high +20 rating at TD Garden while registering eight goals and 13 assists for 21 points. Tyler Seguin , named the Third Star, tallied 9-9=18 totals in all 23 games on home ice with a +16 rating.
Boston Bruins  Foundation and Professional Hockey Writers Association Donation
The Boston Bruins Foundation and the Boston Chapter of the PHWA partnered on a program to raise money for local charities by asking the
working media who cover Bruins home games to make a small donation when dining in the Will McDonough Press Room prior to games.
Through the program, those members of the media who dined in the Press Room were asked to make an $8.00 donation, 100 percent of which went to the Boston Bruins Foundation.
This year, the Boston Bruins Foundation and the PHWA will be donating $15,000 to ‘The One Fund Boston’, whose purpose is to raise money to help those families most affected by the tragedy at the Boston Marathon.
