Islanders forward Matt Moulson, Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane and Lightning forward Martin St. Louis are the three finalists for the NHL's Lady Byng Trophy, the league's sportsmanship award.

St. Louis has already won the award twice (2010 and '11), and was a finalist two other times. The 37-year-old ranked second among NHL forwards in total time on ice, but was assessed just 14 penalty minutes.

Moulson is a finalist for the second straight season. He had four penalty minutes in 47 games, tied with San Jose's Logan Couture for the fewest among the NHL's top 50 scorers.

Kane is a Lady Byng finalist for the first time, after helping Chicago to a Presidents' Trophy. He played 47 games and averaged 20:03 of ice time, but had just eight penalty minutes.
