Jonathan Toews became the third player in Blackhawks history to win the Frank J. Selke trophy, which is awarded to the best defensive forward each season. The award was first given out in 1977-1978. The previvious winners were Troy Murray (interesting enough he also wore #19) and Dirk Graham.

Toews beat out Pavel Datsyuk of the Wings and Patrice Bergeron of the Bruins.
