The 2012 NHL Awards take place next month in Las Vegas but until then, the SB Nation hockey crew decided we were going to vote on the awards ourselves. After all, we're much more qualified to make such decisions compared to the PWHA, general managers and owners....right? Each day this week and into next we'll announce one winner, continuing today with the Lady Byng Trophy.

The Lady Byng Memorial Trophy is presented each year to the National Hockey League "player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability". The winner, according to SB Nation, is...

Brian Campbell, Florida Panthers

Be sure to check out SB Nation to see how the voting worked out. This award was tough to nail down and many, many players were nominated. Once again, we see that Loui Eriksson was completely left off the list. He only received one First Place vote. Who could that have been from?

My ballot: (1) Loui Eriksson, (2) Brian Campbell, (3) Jordan Eberle

Obviously, we all know this vote was a sham. Eriksson was robbed.
