Ovechkin earns award

Thu., July 4, 2013

Alex Ovechkin is an NHL first-team All-Star for the sixth time, but his first as a right wing. The Washington star is the second player to make the team at multiple positions, joining Hall of Famer Mark Messier, a four-time selection – twice at left wing and twice at center. Ovechkin, a five-time choice at left wing, had 32 goals in 48 games. Pittsburgh center Sidney Crosby, a second-time selection to the first team, is the only other player in this year’s class to have made it before. The first-timers include Pittsburgh left wing Chris Kunitz, defensemen P.K. Subban of Montreal and Ryan Suter of Minnesota, and Columbus goalie Sergei Bobrovsky. – AP
