A review of the voting from the Lady Byng Award finds that more voters cast ballots for Matt Moulson than for any other candidate. However, the Award is given on points (10-7-5-3-1 basis), allowing Brian Campbell to capture the honor.
|1. Brian Campbell, FLA 582 (31-22-13-15-8)|
|2. Jordan Eberle, EDM 518 (18-23-23-17-11)|
|3. Matt Moulson, NYI 517 (13-28-26-15-16)|
|4. Loui Eriksson, DAL 448 (21-12-20-13-15)|
Moulson was named on 98 ballots, Eberle 91, Campbell 89 and Eriksson 81. (147 ballots were cast)
Two other Islanders, John Tavares (0-2-3-2-0 for 35 points) and Frans Nielsen (1-1-1-2-0 for 28 points) finished 17th and 20th respectively.
The Isles were the only team with three players in the Top 20. (Detroit was the only other team with at least two.)
