Bruins center Patrice Bergeron [1] was named a finalist for the Frank J. Selke Trophy Wednesday. The award, which Bergeron won last season, is awarded to “the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game.’€

Bergeron went 549-for-884 on faceoffs during the regular season, good for a league-best 62.1 success rate. He also finished sixth in the league with a plus-24 rating.

Other nominees for the award, which is voted on by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association, are Pavel Datsyuk [2] of the Red Wings and Jonathan Toews of the Blackhawks.
