With an impressive first half of the season in the books, three Bruins forwards are being recognized for their performances on the ice. Patrice Bergeron, Charlie McAvoy and Zdeno Chara were all included on the Professional Hockey Writers Association’s Midseason Awards list announced on Friday. The awards, which included the eight traditional end-of-season honors and two new awards, were voted on by more than 150 writers and broadcasters and 2,000 fans.

Bergeron finished first in voting for the Selke Trophy, awarded to the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game, in front of Sean Couturier of the Philadelphia Flyers and the Los Angeles Kings’ Anze Kopitar. Bergeron has already won the award four times during his career, claiming it in 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2017. If he earns the honor again, he will break his tie with former Montreal Canadiens forward Bob Gainey to become the first player in NHL history to win it five times.

The 14-year veteran is having yet another stellar season both offensively and defensively. Bergeron has registered 20 goals and 22 assists for 42 points in 42 games this season while winning 57.4% of his faceoffs and accumulating 39 takeaways.

The Calder Trophy, awarded to the player selected as the most proficient in his first year of competition, featured rookie defenseman Charlie McAvoy as a finalist. The Long Beach, New York native finished third in voting behind New York Islanders forward Mathew Barzal and Vancouver Canucks forward Brock Boeser. McAvoy has been turning heads in his first season, tallying five goals and 20 assists for 25 points through his first 45 games, while racking up 102 hits and 56 blocked shots. He will look to become the first Bruin to win the Calder since goaltender Andrew Raycroft did so in the 2003-2004 season.

One of the new honors featured on the list was the Rod Langway Award, given to the defenseman who best excels in the defensive aspect of the game. Bruins captain Zdeno Chara finished second in voting behind Los Angeles King defenseman Drew Doughty and Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman. With 1,397 games under his belt through nearly 20 seasons, Chara continues to shut down his opponents’ top threats, blocking 83 shots and throwing 97 hits in 47 games this season. His +25 rating is second in the NHL behind only Vegas Golden Knights forward William Karlsson’s +26.

Boston Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy underwent a heart procedure to treat an abnormal rhythm and will be in recovery for two weeks.

The 20-year-old complained of heart palpitations after a Nov. 26 game and was diagnosed with a supraventricular tachycardia. The team said in a release that the condition was not dangerous, but it does cause significant symptoms. McAvoy had been cleared to play but was monitored closely.

McAvoy finally decided to be treated and underwent an ablation at Massachusetts General Hospital, where he will stay overnight. During the procedure, scar tissue is created inside the heart at the place where the irregular heartbeat is originating.

McAvoy was taken by the Bruins in the first round of the 2016 draft and made his NHL debut in last season’s playoffs. This year he has five goals, 20 assists and is a plus-18 in 45 games. He has played a big role in the Bruins’ surprise season. Thought to be a rebuilding team, Boston has the second-most points in the Eastern Conference.

A primetime matchup against an Original Six rival on national television has the entire Bruins locker room ready and raring to lace up their skates for tonight’s game against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden.

But one player in particular has had this game circled on his calendar since the start of the season – B’s defenseman and Long Beach, NY native Charlie McAvoy.

“It’s going to be really special,” McAvoy told reporters following the team’s morning skate. “It’s a game that I’ve been looking forward to… Any time you get to come home and play at a building like this, where you grew up going to games, it really means a lot. It’s special, so I’m excited for it.”

The 19-year-old defenseman will have “a good amount” of friends and family in the building tonight to watch him play alongside 40-year-old captain Zdeno Chara. But both McAvoy and Head Coach Bruce Cassidy are hopeful that the added pressure of playing in front of a hometown crowd won’t distract him from his game.

“He’s from the area, it’s a rivalry game, Madison Square Garden – I imagine he is jacked to played, get out there, as long as he doesn’t get too much ahead of him in that regard,” Cassidy said. “I don’t think anything really does with Charlie. If it does, he’s able to reel it in quickly. Like you, I’m looking forward to seeing what he’s got today.”

“I think staying on that even keel is something that I’ve really tried to practice since as long as I can remember,” McAvoy said. “You don’t get too high or too low. So tonight I’ll just approach it like any other game, and I guess the postgame will be the only thing that’s different, being able to see a lot of good family and friends.”

As for whether his loved ones will be wearing Blue and Red or Black and Gold, McAvoy assured reporters that his supporters in the crowd were willing to change their allegiances – at least for one night.

“Everybody is cheering for me. A lot of Ranger fans turned Bruins fans tonight, which I appreciate. I’m excited.”

Bjork, DeBrusk Eager For Rivalry Game

McAvoy isn’t the only one excited for tonight’s Original Six matchup. Anders Bjork and Jake DeBrusk are among several Bruins set to play their first game against New York at Madison Square Garden.

“Should be an exciting game,” Bjork said. “It should be an exciting atmosphere as well. I’m really excited to play here – I think we all are – and hopefully we’ll have a good one.”

“We know they’re playing good hockey, and we know we’ve got to be ready,” DeBrusk said. “It’s going to be a battle. It’s going to be a tight game and I’m looking forward to it.”

Cassidy told reporters that he hopes his young lineup will be able to handle the adversity of playing in front of loud, hostile crowd.

“I think young guys tend to play better at home,” Cassidy said. “They feed off a little more of that. You see a lot of better records in junior and in college because of that. As they get more mature, they realize, hey, I have to do it 82 times a year – whether we are playing at home or on Mars. We are trying to send that message that you need the same game, the same preparation.”

 

Beating the King

Chief among the Blue Shirts looking to spoil the MSG debuts of McAvoy, Bjork and DeBrusk is goaltender Henrik Lundqvist.

The 2012 Vezina Trophy winner has seen a dip in his numbers so far this season (3.07 GAA, .900 Save %), but DeBrusk and the Bruins know that to have success tonight, they’ll have to create some traffic in front of him.

“Get in his eyes, make sure he doesn’t see the puck – I think that’s the biggest thing,” DeBrusk explained. “He’s the King, and he’s going to stop it if he sees it unless it’s a perfect shot. The main focus is to get to the net, get some rebounds and make sure he doesn’t see the puck.”
