NHL UPDATE: Miller, Crosby earn NHL all-star honors

LAS VEGAS (June 23) — Washington Capitals left wing Alex
Ovechkin
, who becomes the first player in National Hockey League history
voted a First Team All-Star in each of his first five seasons, highlights
the players named to the league’s First and Second All-Star Teams for
2009-10.

Ovechkin surpassed the mark of Montreal Canadiens Hall of Fame
goaltender Bill Durnan, named in his first four seasons from 1943-44
through 1946-47. Joining Ovechkin on the First Team is Capitals teammate
Mike Green, who earned his second consecutive berth on defense.

Each of the remaining First Team players is a first-time
selection, including two Chicago Blackhawks — defenseman Duncan Keith and
right wing Patrick Kane. The last time the Blackhawks boasted as many was
in 1992-93 (goaltender Ed Belfour, defenseman Chris Chelios). Other First
Team honorees are goaltender Ryan Miller of the Buffalo Sabres and center
Henrik Sedin of the Vancouver Canucks.

Among those named to the Second Team is Canucks left wing Daniel
Sedin
, marking the first time in 36 years that brothers had earned berths
on post-season All-Star Teams in the same year. In 1973-74, Boston center
Phil Esposito earned First Team honors and Chicago goaltender Tony
Esposito
was voted to the Second Team.

Joining Daniel Sedin on the Second Team: goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov
of the Phoenix Coyotes, defensemen Drew Doughty of the Los Angeles Kings
and Nicklas Lidstrom of the Detroit Red Wings, center Sidney Crosby of the
Pittsburgh Penguins and right wing Martin St. Louis of the Tampa Bay
Lightning
.

Voting for the All-Star Team is conducted among representatives of
the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association at the end of the regular
season.
