Colorado Avalanche forward Ryan O'Reilly has captured 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," as selected by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association.

O'Reilly posted a runaway win, receiving 110 first-place votes from 137 ballots cast. He was named on 127 ballots and collected 1,181 voting points, ahead of three-time Lady Byng Trophy winner Martin St. Louis of the New York Rangers (358).

O'Reilly tallied a career-high 64 points as the resurgent Avalanche captured the Central Division title and tied a franchise record with 52 victories. He led the club in goals (28), power-play goals (nine) and game-winners (six-tied), and led the NHL in takeaways (83) for the second time in the past three seasons. O'Reilly was flagged for just one minor penalty all season, joining Butch Goring (1977-78, Los Angeles) as the only players ever to receive two or fewer PIM over 80 or more games.
