Via the team’s communications department: Right wing Martin St. Louis of the Tampa Bay Lightning has won the 2012-13 Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, awarded “to the player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability,” as selected by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association. St. Louis received 47 first-place votes and was named on 119 ballots among the 179 cast for a total of 824 points, winning a close three-way race over Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks (785) and Matt Moulson of the New York Islanders (741). Points are allocated on a 10-7-5-3-1 basis for first through fifth place. St. Louis is the Lady Byng Trophy winner for the third time in the past four seasons, having also captured the award in 2009-10 and 2010-11. He has been voted a finalist on four other occasions. The 37-year-old native of Laval, Que., led the NHL with 43 assists and 60 points in 48 games to capture his second career Art Ross Trophy (2003-04). He averaged 1.25 points per game, becoming one of only three players in League history to achieve that mark at age 37 or older (Mario Lemieux, 2002-03; Gordie Howe, 1968-69). St. Louis also ranked second among NHL forwards in total time on ice (1,055:12), but was assessed just 14 penalty minutes.
