Ovechkin selected to All-Stars for 6th timeNEW YORK - 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.
Despite playing only four of 48 games this season at left wing, Ovechkin earned enough votes at the position to qualify for second-team honors. AP
