NEW YORK (AP) - Marc Bergevin of the Montreal Canadiens, Bob Murray of the Anaheim Ducks and Ray Shero of the Pittsburgh Penguins were named Monday as first-time finalists to be the NHL's general manager of the year.
In his first season as an NHL general manager, Bergevin guided the Canadiens to the Northeast Division title. Montreal was also the league's most improved club this season, earning the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference.
Murray oversaw a Ducks team that had its best regular-season finish. Anaheim won the Pacific Division winner and No. 2 seed in the Western Conference.
Shero helped lead the Penguins to their first Atlantic Division title since 2008 and the No. 1 seed in the East. Key additions solidified Pittsburgh's roster.
Voting for the award was conducted among the league's 30 general managers and a panel of NHL executives, print and broadcast media. The winner will be announced during the Stanley Cup finals.
