Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin originally wasn't behind his shift from right wing to left wing, but it appears his coach, Adam Oates, was pretty smart after all.
RIGHT Wing - WSH
GOALS: 32 | ASST: 24 | PTS: 56
SOG: 220 | +/-: 2
After leading the League in goals in 2012-13 and winning his third Hart Trophy, Ovechkin received one more honor -- First-Team All-Star right wing, as the League announced its First- and Second All-Star teams Wednesday.
Voting for the teams is done by members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association in a poll taken at the end of the regular season.
It's the sixth First-Team All-Star nod for Ovechkin in his eight NHL seasons -- the previous five came at left wing.
After a slow start adjusting to his new position, Ovechkin came on strong with 23 goals in his final 23 games to finish with a League-best 32, while also finishing tied for third in the League with 56 points. He won the Rocket Richard Trophy for the third time and then won his third Hart Trophy as the League's most valuable player.
