Minnesota Wild captain Jared Spurgeon might earn the first individual award of his career.
Announced by the NHL on Tuesday, Spurgeon has been named as one of the three finalists for the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy. He was also a finalist last season.

The Lady Byng 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,” and given how many minutes Spurgeon played in all situations for the Wild this season and the fact that he took just five minor penalties through 65 games, just shows how gentlemanly he is.
