Who says hockey players can't be gentlemen?

Tampa Bay Lightning forward Marty St. Louis took home the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy at the NHL awards ceremony Wednesday Night in Las Vegas. The award is annually awarded to the "player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability". St Louis earned 74 of the 132 votes cast and was the runaway winner over 2nd place finisher, and former Lightning star Brad Richards. St. Louis finished the season with a measly 12 penalty minutes in 82 games played.
