2014 NHL Awards: Bergeron, Brown Win
The Blackhawks won only one of the four awards they were nominated for at the 2014 NHL Awards.
Boston’s Patrice Bergeron won the NHL Foundation Award, finishing ahead of Duncan Keith. Kings captain Dustin Brown won the Mark Messier Leadership Award, an award for which Jonathan Toews was also a finalist.
Bergeron also won the Selke Trophy, with Toews finishing third in the final vote.

Well we know better regarding Toews….#1 in our books.
I love that Hossa is 5th for a “center” award
I am quick to rip on Brown and I really cannot believe he is the captain of the Kings, but in my opinion he showed up starting Game 6 of the WCF through the Cup Finals. He knew he needed to play better, did, led by example, and his team won. Kudos to him. Now if he only he would play like that for 90-95 games a year and not just 7, I would respect him a lot more.
Brown winning the Messier Leadership award was the best joke of the night.
Messier Leadership award is primarily for Charitable work…and the amount of good that Dustin Brown does all year long in and around LA is not laughable. He’s a quality person off the ice…its well deserved.
Bergeron deserved the award…he had a monster season.
the NHL Foundation Award is for charitable work.
the Messier Leadership Award is hand-picked by Mark Messier. No vote.
Dustin Brown’s as respected inside that room as any captain in the league. In fact, he reminds me of Chelios when 7 was wearing the Indian head – everyone hated him except his teammates and their fans. He’s nasty and plays big and hard and heavy, but he’s a good guy away from the rink. Good for him. Hard to argue w/ either selection.
