Patrice Bergeron won the EA NHL 15 cover vote.
"Being featured on the cover of 'NHL 15' is a dream come true," Bergeron said. "The fact that the cover is selected entirely by fans is an incredible feeling. The passion and support from hockey fans, especially Bruins fans, is unlike any other sport and I'm so grateful to everyone who voted for me." He earned more votes than Montreal's P.K. Subban in the final. The winner was unveiled at the NHL Awards on Tuesday. Bergeron also walked away with the Frank J. Selke Trophy and the NHL Foundation Player Award. He placed fifth in the league in Hart Trophy voting as well. Jun 26 - 9:26 AM

Boston center Patrice Bergeron was awarded his second career Frank J. Selke Trophy Tuesday night, given to the NHL's best defensive forward.

Bergeron is regarded as the pre-eminent two-way forward in the NHL so it's no shock to see him garner this honor for the second time in three seasons, but he did beat out some illustrious company to take home the hardware. Anze Kopitar, Jonathan Toews and David Backes followed Bergeron in the voting.

Patrice Bergeron is the favorite to win the Frank J. Selke Trophy as the NHL's top defensive forward.

He is competing against the Kings' Anze Kopitar and the Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews. Toews won the award last season, while Bergeron won it in 2012. The Trophy will be awarded next week in Las Vegas.

Patrice Bergeron managed to finish the 2014 playoffs healthy.

"Physically I'm fine, but mentally and with my mood and everything it's definitely not there," Bergeron said after the Bruins were eliminated in Round 2 by Montreal. "It's not where you want to be." He suffered a punctured lung, separated shoulder, and torn rib cartilage last year in the postseason, so keeping his body together this time around could be viewed as a smaller victory. Bergeron finished second on the team in scoring with nine points (three goals, six assists) in 12 games.

Patrice Bergeron's seven-game playoff points streak came to an end Thursday night.

Bergeron is one of the NHL's most consistent post-season performers and will be looking to start another streak when the Bruins face the Habs in Game 5 Saturday night. Other Bruins who saw their points streak halted in Boston's 1-0 win Thursday were Torey Krug (five games), Milan Lucic (five games) and Brad Marchand (three games).
May 10 - 9:16 AM

Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli thinks Patrice Bergeron could become a 35-goal per season forward.

Bergeron reached the 30-goal mark for the second time in his career in 2013-14. He's 28 years old now, but Chiarelli believes Bergeron's "progression won't stop." If nothing else, we wouldn't be surprised if he scores 30 goals again next season.
May 7 - 6:24 PM

Patrice Bergeron netted his third goal of the playoffs Tuesday night, but it wasn't enough for the Bruins to avoid a 4-2 defeat at the hands of the Canadiens.

Bergeron's second period tally cut the Montreal advantage to 3-1 when it found the back of the net and the Bruins drew even closer in the third frame after Andrej Meszaros picked up his first marker of the postseason, but that was as close as Boston would get. Lars Eller iced the game with an empty-net marker for Montreal in the game's final seconds.
May 6 - 10:10 PM

Patrice Bergeron notched a goal and an assist in Boston's 5-3 comeback win over Montreal in Game 2 Saturday afternoon.

He helped start the Bruins' third-period rally with an assist on Dougie Hamilton's second goal of the playoffs and then he tied the game about a few minutes later. Brad Marchand had a helping hand in both of those markers as well to give him four points in his last two games. Bergeron has recorded a point in six straight contests after he was held off the scoresheet in Game 1 versus Detroit.

Patrice Bergeron is a nominee for the NHL Foundation Player Award.

Bergeron runs a charity called Patrice's Pals, which allows kids from youth organizations the opportunity to see Bruins' games from a luxury suite. After the game, they meet up with Bergeron.

Patrice Bergeron has a five-game playoff scoring spree going.

He registered an assist for a fifth straight game in Thursday's double overtime loss to the Montreal Canadiens in Round 2's opener. Bergeron has one goal and six points during his current scoring streak.
May 2 - 7:45 AM

Patrice Bergeron has been nominated for another Frank J. Selke Trophy.

He was tabbed as a finalist for the award on Thursday along with Chicago's Jonathan Toews and Los Angeles' Anze Kopitar. Bergeron led the NHL with 1,015 faceoff wins and finished third overall with a 58.6 winning percentage. He finished second in the league with a plus-38 rating. It marks a third consecutive season that he's up for the Selke Trophy and he won it in 2012.

Patrice Bergeron notched a goal and an assist in Boston's 3-0 win over Detroit in Game 3.

He assisted on Dougie Hamilton's game-winning tally on the power play and he added an empty net marker to seal the victory. Bergeron has three points in three games in the series.
Apr 23 - 7:33 AM

Patrice Bergeron was back on the ice Wednesday for practice and he reported that his undisclosed injury won't be a problem.

It's believed that he missed Tuesday's skate with the flu bug. Bergeron had a great end to the regular season and he got some time off to rest a "minor" injury. He's expected to be ready to play in Game 1 on Friday.
Apr 17 - 10:14 AM

Patrice Bergeron got a boost from his performance at the Winter Olympics.

"I think it helped. Even last time it helped me in 2010 (at the Vancouver Olympics)," he said Wednesday. "I think it always helps you when you play with such great players and on a big stage like that. I think you just learn and you get better and you improve and I think the same thing with this year. I got back and I felt like the speed of the game was so fast over there that it helped me coming back here and helped me with my confidence with the way that things went down there." Bergeron went on a scoring surge at the end of the regular season to finish with 30 goals and 62 points in 80 games. He also posted a personal best plus-38 rating and excelled on faceoffs (58.6%). Bergeron is a favorite to win the Selke Trophy. His status for Game 1 against Detroit hasn't been confirmed, but his injury was said to be very minor so it's probable that he'll play.
Apr 17 - 10:01 AM

Patrice Bergeron should be considered for post-season awards because of his two-way play in 2013-14, according to his general manager with the Boston Bruins.

Bergeron, who's shaking off a minor injury and will play Friday when the Bruins' post-season begins against Detroit, soared after the Olympics. He finished on a 13-game point streak, including 11 goals. He scored 30 for the first time since 2005-06. "It’s the best I’ve seen him, period," Boston GM Peter Chiarelli said of Bergeron. "The Olympics helped us out on a couple of different fronts. Loui (Eriksson) was another one, his pace and his game really took off. Bergy, he started maybe as the 13th forward over there in Sochi, and everyone saw what he can do and he was basically on the top line at the end of the day. It helped his pace, it helped his tempo. You see him shoot the puck better this year. He’s had a terrific year. And of course, the whole two-way component of his game is so good, it’s always good. It’s not by accident you hear his name in the Hart Trophy conversation. That doesn’t surprise me at all. But this is the best I’ve seen him play."
