Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks won the 2013 Selke Trophy offered "to the forward who very best excels in the defensive factors of the game," as voted on by members of the Expert Hockey Writers' Association Bobby Orr Jersey.


Centers Patrice Bergeron of the Boston Bruins, Pavel Datsyuk of the Detroit Red Wings and Toews had been up for the award. Bergeron won the 2012 Selke.

From the NHL, on Toews:

Toews played a foremost role in assisting the runaway Presidents' Trophy winners rank 1st all round in group defense (2 http://www.blackhawksgearonline.com/duncan-keith-jersey.02 goals-against per game). He finished third in the NHL in plus-minus with a occupation-high +28 rating, like a League-major +21 away from residence shared the overall lead in takeaways with fellow Selke finalist Pavel Datsyuk (56) positioned second in the NHL in encounter-off winning percentage (59 Corey Crawford Jersey.9%, 559-374) and played an common of one:25 per game on the NHL's third-ranked penalty-killing unit (87.two%). The Blackhawks captain is a Selke finalist for 2nd time, having completed runner-up to Vancouver's Ryan Kesler in 2011 Patrick Sharp Jersey.

We cast our ballot for Bergeron, and this was a bit of an upset. Think about Bergeron was on the ice for only 13 targets at even power this season, and led the NHL in faceoff percentage with a 61.2 winning %.

Nevertheless, there was a sense Toews was due for this, and there’s no quibbling about his defensive prowess. Ask Zach Parise and Mikko Koivu about it Jonathan Toews Jersey.
