Panthers Defenseman Brian Campbell Named 2012 Recipient Of Lady Byng Memorial Trophy

LAS VEGAS – The National Hockey League announced today that Florida Panthers D Brian Campbell has been selected as the 2012 recipient of the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, awarded to the player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability. Campbell becomes just the third defenseman ever to win in the 87-year history of the award, and the first blueliner to hold the honor since Red Kelly in 1954.

Campbell received the honor Wednesday at the 2012 NHL Awards, hosted in the Encore Theater at the Wynn Las Vegas. Other finalists for the award were right wing Jordan Eberle of the Edmonton Oilers and left wing Matt Moulson of the New York Islanders

Campbell led all NHL players in ice time and T-1st among all NHL skaters in TOI/game (26:53) during the 2011-12 regular season, totaling only 6 PIM – his first penalty coming after accidentally shooting the puck out of play. The 33-year-old ranked T-2nd among all NHL defensemen with 53 points (4-49-53) and was one of only three Panthers to skate in all 82 regular-season games. He set a Panthers franchise record with 30 power-play assists and tied a franchise record for a defensemen with 49 helpers. 

Campbell played in all seven of the Panthers postseason contests, scoring one goal (game-winner 4/13 vs. NJD) with four assists, while leading the team in TOI/game (28:00).  As the Panthers’ representative at the 2012 NHL All-Star Game in Ottawa, Campbell recorded an assist and led all skaters with a +7 rating and 21:40 TOI.

During his 12-season NHL career, the Strathroy, Ont., native has played in 708 regular season games for Buffalo (2001-08), San Jose (2007-08), Chicago (2008-11) and Florida (2011-12) scoring 58 goals with 307 assists, 173 PIM and a plus-44 rating. The four-time NHL All-Star (2007-09, 2012) won a Stanley Cup with Chicago in 2010. 

Campbell was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres in the sixth round (156th overall) of the 1997 NHL Entry Draft. He was acquired by Florida from Chicago in exchange for LW Rostislav Olesz on June 24, 2011.
