DETROIT -- For the first time in his career, Pavel Datsyuk has been nominated for the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy. Datsyuk led the Red Wings in scoring during the regular season with a career-high 87 points (28 goals, 59 assists) in 75 games. San Jose's Patrick Marleau and Tampa Bay's Brad Richards were also nominated. The Lady Byng Memorial Trophy is awarded annually "to the player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability," as selected by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association.

The winners will be announced Thursday, June 22 during the 2006 NHL Awards Television Special in Vancouver (CBC, 8 p.m., ET).

The NHL General Managers vote for the Vezina Trophy. Members of the National Hockey League Players' Association select the Lester B. Pearson Award winner and the NHL Broadcasters' Association votes on the Jack Adams Award. Results are tabulated by the accounting firm Ernst & Young.
