For Bergeron, this is the 6th consecutive time he's been nominated for the award. He's taken it home 3 times, and is looking for number 4. Bob Gainey has the record for the most Selke wins, winning it 4 times. Pavel Datsyuk, Jere Lehtinen and Guy Carbonneau are the only others to win it 3 times, or a hatrick. In 79 games this season, Bergeron scored 53 points (21 goals and 32 assists) and was a +12.

I think that Koivu will win. It's his first time being a finalist and the others have won, so I'm rooting for him. I think he'll win because of the Wild being so successful because of their defense. His +27 rating is amazing for a defenseman, let alone a forward.
