Sedin brothers share first-team honors

Daniel and Henrik Sedin became the first brothers voted to the NHL First All-Star Team since Phil and Tony Esposito after the 1969-70 season.

The Sedins are joined on the team by Nicklas Lidstrom, who earned his 10th selection to the team.

Alex Ovechkin was named to the Second All-Star Team after capturing first-team honors in each of his first five seasons.

The three finalists for the Calder trophy, Logan Couture, Michael Grabner and Jeff Skinner, headlined the All-Rookie Team.

Voting for both teams was conducted at the end of the regular season by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association.
