Jordan Eberle admits to being slightly disappointed -- and slightly relieved -- that he didn't win the Lady Byng on Wednesday night.

It would have been a fantastic accomplishment for the young Edmonton sniper, but it also would have meant delivering a live acceptance speech on national TV, which ranks up there with delivering a kidney stone on national TV.

"To be at such and young age and only in my second year, it was just an honour to be nominated," said Eberle, who had 30 goals and 10 penalty minutes this year. "To be the second youngest (nominee) since Paul Kariya is quite the honour."
