Calgary Flames forward Jiří Hudler has been given the NHL’s Lady Byng Memorial trophy awarded to the player who demonstrates the best sportsman ship and gentlemanly conduct. The 31-year-old Czech received 700 points, and finished 52 points ahead of Pavel Datsuk of the Detroit Red Wings, who is a four-time winner of the trophy. Hudler was assessed just 14 penalty minutes over the whole season, which is the fewest among the League's top 20 scorers. Hudler is the first Czech to win the award, given out by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association.
