As defined by the NHL, this trophy is awarded to "the player adjudged to
have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct
combined with a high standard of playing ability." That's right. A
sportsmanship award. No misconducts allowed.

History of the trophy: The original Lady Byng trophy was presented to
the NHL by Marie Evelyn Moreton, Lady Byng, the wife of Lord Julian
Byng, the twelfth Governor-General of Canada, in 1925. It was retired
and kept by Frank Boucher, who won the award 7 times in 8 seasons,
and a new trophy was donated in 1936. After she died in 1949, a third
(and current) incarnation of the award was presented.
