NEW YORK (AP)
Loui Eriksson of the Dallas Stars, Nicklas Lidstrom of the Detroit Red Wings and Martin St. Louis of the Tampa Bay Lightning are the finalists for the NHL's Lady Byng Memorial Trophy for sportsmanship.
The league announced the finalists Thursday. The winner will be announced June 22 at the NHL awards ceremony.
Eriksson is a first-time finalist. He led the team in power-play goals with 10 and received just eight minutes in penalties. Lidstrom is a six-time finalist who has yet to win the award.
St. Louis also has been a finalist six times, winning the trophy in 2009-10.
