Datsyuk wins yet another Lady Byng as NHL's most gentlemanly player

LAS VEGAS - They might as well just give Pavel Datsyuk the Lady Byng Trophy.

He received the award for the fourth straight season, beating New Jersey's Zach Parise and Tampa's Martin St. Louis in voting conducted by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association.

The trophy has been Datsyuk's domain since the NHL lockout.

He was whistled for just 11 minor penalties all season long - totalling 22 minutes.

St. Louis incurred only 14 minutes in penalties but was a finalist for the fourth time. Parise was a first-time nominee.
