Tampa Bay Lightning wing Marty St. Louis will have the chance to win consecutive Lady Byng awards.

St. Louis, 35, is among three finalists for the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy, the NHL's annual award recognizing the combination of sportsmanship, gentlemanly play and ability.

St. Louis won the award a year ago.

The other 2011 finalists are veteran Detroit defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom and Dallas win Loui Eriksson, the league announced Thursday. St. Louis and Lidstrom are six-time finalists, while Eriksson is a first-time honoree.

The winner will be announced June 22 at the NHL Awards show in Las Vegas.

St. Louis, who has been a finalist six of the past seven seasons, won for the first time last season. This season, he finished second in league in scoring with 99 points (31 goals, 68 assists). He tied a franchise record for assists in a season and posted the second-highest point total in his 12-year NHL career. He was assessed just 12 minutes in penalties, matching his career low set last year.
