Sweeney was named GM of the Year during the NHL Awards on Wednesday night, beating out Doug Armstrong (Blues) and Don Waddell (Hurricanes) for his first NHL award.

At the trade deadline, Sweeney pulled the trigger on deals to land forwards Marcus Johansson and Charlie Coyle. Both players proved to be valuable down the stretch and throughout the B's deep playoff run.

The B's finished the regular season with a 49-24-9 record and made it to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, where they fell to Armstrong's Blues.
