NHL All Star Teams

TORONTO (June 14, 2007)—
Crosby, 19, is the youngest player named to the First Team since All-Star selections began in 1930-31. The youngest prior recipients were Wayne Gretzky and Bobby Orr, who were 20 in 1980-81 and 1967-68, respectively.
Ovechkin has earned First Team honors in each of his first two full NHL seasons, the first player to do so since Detroit Red Wings goaltender Terry Sawchuk in 1950-51 and 1951-52.
Lidstrom earned his eighth career berth on the First Team, the most among active defensemen and tied with Bobby Orr for third all-time. Ray Bourque is the all-time leader with 13, followed by Doug Harvey’s 10.

Joining Crosby, Ovechkin and Lidstrom on the First Team are goaltender Martin Brodeur of the New Jersey Devils, a third-time recipient to go with his three career Second Team selections; the Ottawa Senators’ Dany Heatley (right wing), voted to the First Team for the first time after receiving Second Team honors last season; and Anaheim Ducks defenseman Scott Niedermayer, a First Team member for the third consecutive campaign.

The Second Team features three players making debuts on an NHL All-Star Team: defenseman Dan Boyle and center Vincent Lecavalier of the Tampa Bay Lightning and left wing Thomas Vanek of the Buffalo Sabres. They are joined by Anaheim defenseman Chris Pronger, (third appearance on the Second Team to go with his one previous First Team selection), Lightning right wing Martin St. Louis (who earned his first career Second Team berth to go with one previous First Team selection) and Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo, named to the Second Team for the second time.
Voting for the All-Star Team is conducted among representatives of the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association at the end of the regular season.
