Alex Ovechkin! That’s who got votes! Lots and lots and lots of them.
Below is the list of players who received votes from the Professional Hockey Writers Association by position – please note that Alex Ovechkin played right wing this year, yet enough writers voted for him as a left winger (mistakenly) that he actually made both the first and second all-star teams (again, mistakenly), robbing Taylor Hall of his rightful spot on the second team (and potentially some bonus money, I’m still looking into that). You can see how I voted here for relative proof that I actually paid some attention and wasn’t on the list of oopsies.
(LW) Chris Kunitz – (C) Sidney Crosby – (RW) Alex Ovechkin
(D) PK Subban – (D) Ryan Suter
(G) Sergei Bobrovsky
(LW) Alex Ovechkin – (C) Jonathan Toews – (RW) Martin St. Louis
(D) Kris Letang – (D) Francois Beauchemin
(G) Henrik Lundqvist
Evgeni Nabokov got a first place vote.
Go Dan Girardi!
Peter Laviolette had a vote?
