Today, I am making my first pick for the Lady Byng Trophy. We are far enough into the season that a clear leader has emerged and he is Logan Couture of the San Jose Sharks. He has become the Sharks clear leader on the ice surpassing future Hall of Famer Joe Thornton. He is currently tied for sixth in scoring in the league with 16 points and has yet to record a penalty minute. The 2007 first round draft pick was a Calder Trophy nominee in 2011. He is doing a good job of fulfilling that potential and has made himself a very serious contender to earn a spot on the Canadian Olympic Team in Sochi. He only picked up four penalty minutes last year, but failed to earn a Lady Byng nomination. It looks like he is on his way to a high scoring year, with limited penalty minutes. If he does that, he is a strong Lady Byng candidate.
