WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron has been named a finalist for the 2013-2014 NHL Foundation Player Award, which is given to the player who applies core values of hockey, commitment, perseverance and teamwork to enrich the lives of people in the community.

Brent Burns of the San Jose Sharks and Duncan Keith of the Chicago Blackhawks are the other two finalists.

Bergeron, who is already a finalist for the Selke Trophy, has a program called “Patrice’s Pals” that provides children from various youth organizations the opportunity to watch Bruins home games from a luxury suite and meet Bergeron after games. Among the charities that have participated are Boston Children’s Hospital, Defending the Blue Line, Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center, Franciscan Hospital for Children, The Jimmy Fund, The Home for Little Wanderers and Massachusetts General Hospital.
