The Lady Byng award has been given to Florida defenceman Brian Campbell.

Campbell beat out Edmonton's Jordan Eberle and Matt Moulson of the New York Islanders as the player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability.

Campbell, the Panthers' top blue-liner, played all 82 games during his first season in Florida, but only logged six penalty minutes. It was the second season in a row he was under 10 penalty minutes on the year.
