CHICAGO (June 14, 2013) -- Center Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks has won the Frank J. Selke Trophy for 2012-13, in recognition of "the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game," as selected by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association.

Toews received 75 first-place votes among the 179 ballots cast and polled 1,260 points to edge last year's Selke Trophy recipient and 2013 Stanley Cup Final opponent Patrice Bergeron of the Boston Bruins in a photo finish. Bergeron received 1,250 points, including 78 first-place votes.
Points are allocated on 10-7-5-3-1 basis for first through fifth place.

Detroit Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk, voted a Selke Trophy finalist for a record-setting sixth consecutive year, finished third in balloting with 737 points.

Toews played a leading role in helping the runaway Presidents' Trophy winners rank first overall in team defense (2.02 goals-against per game).
He finished third in the NHL in plus-minus with a career-high +28 rating, including a League-leading +21 away from home; shared the overall lead in takeaways with Datsyuk (56); placed second in the NHL in face-off winning percentage (59.9%, 559-374); and played an average of 1:25 per game on the NHL's third-ranked penalty-killing unit (87.2%).


CHICAGO (June 14, 2013) -- Ottawa Senators head coach Paul MacLean has captured the 2012-13 Jack Adams Award as "the NHL coach adjudged to have contributed the most to his team's success," as selected by the NHL Broadcasters’ Association.

MacLean was a top-three selection on 56 of the 83 ballots cast, including 28 first-place votes, for 206 points, ahead of second-place Joel Quenneville of the Chicago Blackhawks (22 first-place votes, 160 points). Points are allocated on a 5-3-1 basis for first through third place.

MacLean guided the Senators (25-17-6) to a berth in the Stanley Cup Playoffs despite the extended absence of several key players due to injury.

Defenseman Erik Karlsson, the reigning Norris Trophy winner, was limited to 17 games; defenseman Jared Cowen, the ninth overall pick in the 2009 NHL Draft, was sidelined for all but seven games; top forwards Jason Spezza and Milan Michalek played in just five and 23 contests, respectively; and starting goaltender Craig Anderson appeared in just 24 games. MacLean led a youthful Senators lineup, which included a League-high 14 rookies making at least one appearance, to the top defensive record in the Eastern Conference (2.08 goals-against per game).

MacLean takes home his first Jack Adams Award in his second appearance as a finalist. He placed third in 2011-12, his rookie season as an NHL head coach.

CHICAGO (June 14, 2013) -- Ray Shero of the Pittsburgh Penguins is the 2012-13 winner of the NHL General Manager of the Year Award. Voting for this award was conducted among the 30 Club General Managers and a panel of NHL executives, print and broadcast media at the conclusion of the regular season.

Shero received 14 first-place votes among the 39 ballots cast, was named on 26 ballots and tallied 94 points to win a close three-way race over Bob Murray of the Anaheim Ducks (88) and Marc Bergevin of the Montreal Canadiens (75). Points are allocated on 5-3-1 basis for first through third place.

Shero made key additions to an already-strong roster throughout the year that helped propel the Penguins (36-12-0) to a playoff berth for the seventh consecutive season, their first Atlantic Division title since 2008 and the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. He obtained C Brandon Sutter and G Tomas Vokoun in offseason trades and later brought RW Jarome Iginla, LW Brenden Morrow, C Jussi Jokinen and D Douglas Murray to Pittsburgh in deals leading up to the trade deadline. Pittsburgh reeled off 15 consecutive victories from March 2-30, the second-longest winning streak in NHL history and the League’s longest winning streak in 20 years.

CHICAGO (June 14, 2013) -- Right wing Martin St. Louis of the Tampa Bay Lightning has won the 2012-13 Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, awarded "to the player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability," as selected by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association.

St. Louis received 47 first-place votes and was named on 119 ballots among the 179 cast for a total of 824 points, winning a close three-way race over Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks (785) and Matt Moulson of the New York Islanders (741). Points are allocated on a 10-7-5-3-1 basis for first through fifth place.

St. Louis is the Lady Byng Trophy winner for the third time in the past four seasons, having also captured the award in 2009-10 and 2010-11. He has been voted a finalist on four other occasions.

The 37-year-old native of Laval, Que., led the NHL with 43 assists and 60 points in 48 games to capture his second career Art Ross Trophy (2003-04). He averaged 1.25 points per game, becoming one of only three players in League history to achieve that mark at age 37 or older (Mario Lemieux, 2002-03; Gordie Howe, 1968-69). St. Louis also ranked second among NHL forwards in total time on ice (1,055:12), but was assessed just 14 penalty minutes.

CHICAGO (June 14, 2013) -- Detroit Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg is the recipient of the 2012-13 NHL Foundation Player Award. The award recognizes the NHL player who applies the core values of hockey – commitment, perseverance and teamwork – to enrich the lives of people in his community. The NHL Foundation will present $25,000 to the Zetterberg Foundation to help fund the creation of three water stations in Kemba, Ethiopia, and provide 1,900 people with clean water for a lifetime. This donation will enable more children in the village to attend school as opposed to spending their days walking hours to get water for their families.

Zetterberg and his wife, Emma, give back to the Metro Detroit community through numerous initiatives as well as international causes in Ethiopia, Guatemala and Nepal. Zetterberg hosts children’s charities, including Metro Detroit area children’s hospitals and mentoring nonprofits, at each Red Wings home game during the regular season in the Zetterberg Foundation Suite. Zetterberg also funds a high school hockey scholarship each year and underwrites the Hockey Weekly High School All-Star Banquet.

As the team spokesman for the Red Wings annual Smoke Detector Collection, Zetterberg personally matches all donations. Working with area fire departments, more than 23,000 smoke detectors have been distributed to low-income and physically-disabled residents who could otherwise not afford one or be able to install one in their home. When a local firefighter passed away in the line of duty last month, Zetterberg contributed to the team fundraiser, helping the Wings raise more than $15,000 for the firefighter’s family.

Zetterberg and his wife built the Chige Primary School in Kemba, Ethiopia, in cooperation with Action Aid Ethiopia. The school consists of four classrooms and gives 225 children in Kemba access to a primary school education. The Belta Telo Middle School currently has 780 kids sharing four small classrooms; however, thanks to a donation from the Zetterberg Foundation, construction to add a block of four new classrooms to the school has begun. He also supports microloan programs in Ethiopia and Guatemala to provide women with the opportunity to start their own businesses and work themselves out of poverty. In addition, the Zetterberg Foundation has financed and built six houses for former debt slaves in Nepal.


CHICAGO (June 14, 2013) -- Center Patrice Bergeron of the Boston Bruins is the 2012-13 recipient of the King Clancy Memorial Trophy, awarded "to the player who best exemplifies leadership on and off the ice and who has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution to his community."

Bergeron has demonstrated these qualities in his nine seasons with the Bruins through serving as an alternate captain, spending time in the community and working with charitable organizations.

Bergeron’s Patrice’s Pals program brings local hospital patients and children’s organizations, who may not otherwise have the opportunity to experience a game, to TD Garden to watch the Bruins play from the view of a luxury suite and meet and take photographs with Patrice. Among the many organizations he has hosted: the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Children’s Hospital Boston, Franciscan Hospital for Children, Massachusetts General Hospital for Children and numerous special needs hockey teams.

One notable guest whom Bergeron has hosted in his Patrice’s Pals suite is Matt Brown, a local high school athlete who was paralyzed from the chest down due to a hockey accident in 2010. Bergeron has maintained contact with Brown and his family, hosting them in his suite twice a year since the accident.

Bergeron also represents his club at numerous community events throughout the year. He is heavily involved in the Bruins' Annual Holiday Toy Delivery, during which players and other members of the Bruins organization shop for toys to deliver to children in area hospitals who cannot be home for the holidays. Bergeron has spearheaded the shopping and delivery for a number of years, demonstrating his passion for working with children in need.


CHICAGO (June 14, 2013) -- Minnesota Wild goaltender Josh Harding is the 2012-13 recipient of the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, awarded annually to the NHL player who "best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey." The award was presented by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association (PHWA) to honor the late Bill Masterton, a player for the Minnesota North Stars who exhibited those qualities. Masterton died on Jan. 15, 1968, as a result of an on-ice injury.

A $2,500 grant from the PHWA is awarded annually to the Bill Masterton Scholarship Fund, based in Bloomington, Minn., in the name of the Masterton Trophy winner.

Harding, 28 (6/18/84), went 1-1-0 with a 3.24 goals-against average, a .863 save percentage and one shutout in five regular-season games with Minnesota this year and 1-4 with a 2.94 GAA and a .911 SV% in five playoff starts for the Wild. He stopped all 24 shots faced in his first start this season in a 1-0 victory against the Dallas Stars on Jan. 20. Harding was placed on Injured Reserved Feb. 12 and missed 33 games with the Wild as he battles multiple sclerosis, which was diagnosed last fall. He was assigned to the Houston Aeros (AHL) on a conditioning assignment April 16 and went 1-1-0, stopping 56-of-61 shots for a 3.00 GAA and .918 SV% in two starts and helped Houston clinch a spot in the Calder Cup playoffs before being recalled by Minnesota on April 22.


CHICAGO (June 14, 2013) -- Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson is the recipient of the 2012-13 Mark Messier NHL Leadership Award presented by Bridgestone, which is given to “the player who exemplifies great leadership qualities to his team, on and off the ice during the regular season." Mark Messier solicits suggestions from club and League personnel and NHL fans to compile a list of potential candidates. However, the selection of the winner is Messier’s alone.

Alfredsson, the NHL’s longest-serving active captain, leads the Senators in numerous categories, including career games played, goals, assists and points. He has taken a leadership role off of the ice as well, working with the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa, the Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health and the Sens Foundation. Alfredsson has supported the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa for the past 10 seasons, purchasing tickets and suites for club members to attend Senators games and serving as title sponsor of Ringside for Youth, the club’s primary fundraising event during the season. Since 2008, he also has been the spokesperson and champion for the Royal’s “You Know Who I Am” campaign, leading the way to help reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues. In addition, Alfredsson has supported the Royal’s “Do It for Daron” campaign to assist in raising the profile of youth mental health issues.

Okay, after reading Paul’s article on Zata’s win, I’m so glad that man is wearing the “C” in Detroit.  A really, really well-deserved recognition for Zata.  I’m truly impressed.

Not sure Kane would have wanted to win the Lady Bing. I question if it is something to aspire to.
