Tampa Bay Lightning forward Marty St. Louis was named one of three finalists for the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy on Thursday.
Chicago’s Patrick Kane and New York Islanders’ forward Matt Moulson were also announced by the NHL as the top vote-getters for the award. The winner will be announced during the Stanley Cup Finals next month.
The Lady Byng is awarded “to the player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability’’ and voted on by the Professional Hockey Writer’s Association.
St. Louis finished this season with a league-leading 60 points to capture his second career Art Ross Trophy as the top scorer in the league. St. Louis also led the league with 43 assists with just seven minor penalties on the season.
This marks the seventh time St. Louis has been named a finalist for the Lady Byng. The 37-year-old has won the award twice, in 2009-10 and 2010-11.
Kane finished the regular season fifth in scoring with 55 points and eight penalty minutes while Moulson had 15 goals and 44 points to go with four penalty minutes.
