Boyes named to All-Rookie Team

VANCOUVER (CP) - Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers, defencemen Dion Phaneuf of the Calgary Flames and Andrej Meszaros of the Ottawa Senators, and forwards Brad Boyes of the Boston Bruins, Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Alexander Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals have been voted to the 2005-2006 NHL all-rookie team.

Lundqvist was the first rookie Vezina Trophy finalist since Washington's Jim Carey in 1995. The Swede went 30-12-9 with a 2.24 goals-against average and .922 save percentage in 53 games. He was the first goaltender in franchise history to record 30 victories as a rookie.

Phaneuf earned a spot on the Calgary defence in training camp and made a major impact at both ends of the ice. He led all rookie defencemen in scoring with 49 points (20 goals, 29 assists), becoming the third blue-liner in NHL history to score 20 goals as a rookie after the Rangers' Brian Leetch (23 in 1988-89) and Colorado Rockies' Barry Beck (22 in 1977-78). His big shot from the point was a major asset to Calgary's power play. Phaneuf scored 16 of his 20 goals with the man advantage.

Meszaros arrived from the WHL's Vancouver Giants to earn a spot on the Senators' defence. He appeared in all 82 games, averaging 18:10 in ice time a game, and tied for third place among all players in plus-minus with a plus-34. He also contributed 39 points (10 goals, 29 assists).

Boyes was second on the Bruins and third among all rookies in scoring with 69 points (26 goals, 43 assists) and a plus-11 rating in 82 games.

Crosby, at 18 years, eight months, became the youngest player to tally 100 points in a season - three months younger than Winnipeg's Dale Hawerchuk was in 1981-82. He led all rookies in assists (63), ranked second in goals (39) and points (102) and finished sixth in the league scoring race. Crosby enjoyed an exceptionally strong finish to the season with 22 points (7-15) in his last 10 games.

Ovechkin led all rookies in scoring with 106 points and became the second rookie in history to tally 50 goals and 100 points in a season, following Winnipeg's Teemu Selanne in 1992-93. He also led the NHL in shots with 425 - most ever for a rookie - and ranked third among all players in points. His 52 goals tied for third in the League and ranked third all-time among rookies to Selanne (76) and Mike Bossy (53).

Voting was conducted by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association at the conclusion of the regular season.

To qualify for rookie status, a player cannot have played more than 25 games in any single preceding season nor in six or more games (in any major professional league) in any two preceding seasons. A player also must not have reached his 26th birthday by Sept. 15 of the season in which he is eligible.
