Boston Bruins captain Patrice Bergeron is a great player who is committed to what he does, and it's no wonder where the rewards come from after all. He won the Selke Trophy. It is a trophy for the best forward who dominates the defensive aspects of the game.
He could not hide his happiness after winning the award and it is clear how much this trophy means to him. Bergeron wants to continue at the same pace, but he did not forget his teammates who were his support, and without working together, this success would not have come.
“It’s definitely an honour,” Bergeron said, as quoted by NHL.com. “I think I’m humbled, that’s the first word that comes to mind. It is an individual award but obviously, you can’t get any of those without the help of your teammates.
Been fortunate to play on great teams and win five Selkes and yeah, it goes to them obviously. As I said, it’s humbling. It’s the only award that I have”.
Patrice Bergeron is consistent
Obviously, he takes this job seriously, and it's no wonder he has been on the NHL for so long.
Bergeron has shown consistency, quality many times, and helped his team in many cases. Indeed, a player that every team would like to have on the roster. “The 11 in a row, as a player, I think you want to be a consistent player, you want to be known as a consistent player, so yes it’s nice to be recognized that way,” he said.
“But I’ve said many times, that’s the way I’ve learned to play the game and that’s the way I want to play the game. I don’t think I would’ve changed the way I play on the ice or the way I would’ve done it for the last 18, 19 years now”.
