FRISCO, Tex. – The National Hockey League announced today that Dallas Stars defenseman Sergei Zubov has been named to the 2008 Western Conference NHL All-Star Team, to be played Sunday, January 27 in Atlanta.

Zubov, 37, will be making his fourth NHL All-Star appearance (1998, 1999, 2000, 2008).

Among NHL defensemen, he ranks second in assists and third in points.

  “This is a huge honor for me and I am very excited to represent my team at the All-Star Game,” said Zubov. “My teammates had a lot to do with this because I would obviously not being going if it wasn’t for them. It should be a fun weekend and I’m really looking forward to it.”

For the first time in his career, Zubov was nominated for the Norris Trophy following the 2005-06 season and was also named to the NHL Second All-Star Team. In 1,055 games over his career with the New York Rangers (1992-95), the Pittsburgh Penguins (1995-96) and the Stars (1996-Present), he has tallied 152 goals and 615 assists for 767 points. He is the highest scoring Russian defenseman in NHL history and is third all-time among European defenseman (Nicklas Lidstrom and Borje Salming).

A two-time Stanley Cup winner (1999 with Dallas and 1994 with the Rangers) and Olympian (1992), Zubov has also played in 153 career playoff games. During the post-season over his career, he has notched 23 goals and 88 assists for 111 points. In 1994, he became the first defensemen to lead a team in scoring that finished first overall in the NHL. During the 1993-94 season with New York, he registered 89 points (12-77-89) in 78 contests.
