LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Jiri Hudler of the Calgary Flames has won the Lady Byng Trophy as the NHL's most sportsmanlike player.

Hudler accepted the trophy Wednesday night at the NHL Awards show in Las Vegas.

Hudler received 52 first-place votes to beat Detroit's Pavel Datsyuk and Los Angeles' Anze Kopitar in the voting.

Hudler was the NHL's eighth-leading scorer with 76 points while Calgary qualified for its first post-season trip since 2009. He received just 14 penalty minutes all season, the fewest among the league's top 20 scorers.

Datsyuk has won the trophy four times.
