Patrice Bergeron Wins Selke Trophy For Record Breaking 5th Time, Might As Well Rename It After Him

Patrice Bergeron has made history. After a dominant defensive season he picked up his record breaking FIFTH Selke Trophy, passing Bob Gainey on the all time list. He earned 160 of 195 first place votes. Talk about a landslide. Incredibly well deserved, just an incredibly impressive season at 36. He is a UFA and contemplating his future but my gut feeling is I think he's gonna run it back for one more year. He's been a finalist for 11 consecutive season, now has 5 wins and honestly at this point they should just name the trophy after him (with all due respect to Frank J Selke). 

Also ICYMI, classic Friday news dump by the Bruins...

McAvoy out 6 months, Grzelcyk out 5 months, Reilly out 3 months… on top of Brad Marchand already being out 6 months (surgery on both hips). Patrice Bergeron underwent surgery on his left elbow to repair a tendon but his recovery time is only 11-12 weeks. The team is in somewhat turmoil heading into the summer with all of these injuries and the fact that Bruce Cassidy's job is anything but safe. I'm team #SweeneyOut right now (despite Neely saying they will reup his contract), but I also don't think Bruce is currently well liked in the locker room. Wouldn't hate cleaning house, especially if Bergeron does retire. Should be an interesting summer for the B's, but for now we relish in the greatness that is Patrice Bergeron. 

ps. David Krejci didn't say no…
