Wings' Datsyuk, Lidstrom, Hossa named to All-Star second team


LAS VEGAS – LAS VEGAS (AP) - Pavel Datsyuk, Nicklas Lidstrom and Marian Hossa of the Red Wings have been named to the NHL All-Star second team.

Datsyuk also went home from last night's ceremony with his fourth straight Lady Byng Award honoring hockey's most gentlemanly player. He drew only 22 penalty minutes in 81 games.

Datsyuk also claimed his second consecutive Selke Award presented to the league's top defensive forward. He ranked second in the NHL with 89 takeaways and is considered one of the league's best two-way forwards.

Boston's Zdeno Chara beat Lidstrom and Washington's Mike Green for the Norris Trophy as the league's top defenseman. Lidstrom has won the Norris six times.
