In his fourth consecutive year and fifth all-time as a finalist, Tampa Bay Lightning right wing Martin St. Louis has captured his first career 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 earned 74 first-place votes among the 132 cast and earned 971 points to score a decisive victory over Dallas Stars center Brad Richards (449 points) and Detroit Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk (438), to whom he had finished runner-up in Lady Byng voting in each of the prior three seasons. Datsyuk was bidding for an unprecedented fifth consecutive Lady Byng Trophy win.

The Tampa Bay winger had a superb 2009-10 season, ranking sixth in the League in scoring with 94 points, the second-highest total of his 11-year NHL career. His 12 penalty minutes were the fewest among the League’s top 50 scorers and the fewest among the 88 players who appeared in all 82 games. The winner of the Hart Trophy and Art Ross Trophy in Tampa Bay’s Stanley Cup season of 2003-04, St. Louis has eclipsed 30 penalty minutes in a season only twice in a career that has seen him score 30 goals five times and appear in five NHL All-Star Games.
