The Bruins capped off a big night with hardware winners in the Vezina Trophy (Tuukka Rask) and Selke Trophy (Patrice Bergeron) category at the NHL Awards Show on Tuesday night, and also garnered a number of All-Star honors as well. Zdeno Chara finished a distant second behind Duncan Keith in the Norris Trophy voting, but joined the Chicago Blackhawks defenseman as an NHL First team All-Star for the third time in his career.

Tuukka Rask similarly captured a First Team All-Star slot at the goaltender position along with Chara, Keith, Sidney Crosby, right wing Corey Perry and left wing Jamie Benn.

Rookie defenseman Torey Krug finished fourth in the Calder Trophy voting for the league’s best rookie, and just missed the cut for an all-expenses paid trip to Vegas as one of the three finalists. But the prolific offensive defenseman was named to the NHL All-Rookie team after posting 25 assists and 40 points, and earned spots along with Nathan MacKinnon, Ondrej Palat, Tyler Johnson, Hampus Lindholm and Frederik Andersen.

Krug led all rookie defensemen with 14 goals, 26 assists and 40 points in 79 games. He became just the fifth blueliner in Bruins history to record at least 10 goals in his debut season, and finished third on the franchise list behind Ray Bourque (17) and Greg Hawgood (16).

Krug also led all rookie defensemen in power-play goals (6), power-play assists (13) and power-play points (19), and ranked third in plus/minus (+18). He is the first Bruins player to be named to the NHL All-Rookie Team since all the way back in 2005-06 (Brad Boyes), and the first Bruins defenseman to earn the honor since 2001-02 when the now retired Nick Boynton took home the honors.

Krug won’t earn any additional contract bonuses for his inclusion on the All-Rookie team as he already maxed out the $850,000 in bonus money he could earn for the 2013-14 season.
