NEW YORK (AP) - Alex Ovechkin is an NHL first-team All-Star for the sixth time, but his first as a right wing.
The Washington Capitals star is the second player to make the team at multiple positions, joining Hockey 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 - including 23 in the final 23 - and earned his third Hart Trophy as MVP.
Pittsburgh's 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, the Vezina Trophy winner.
Voting is done by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association at the end of the regular season.
