St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Minnesota Wild defenseman Ryan Suter was named to the National Hockey League (NHL) First All-Star Team, one of only six player the league announced on Wednesday.

Suter is the first player in Wild history to be named to the NHL First All-Star Team. He's just the second, along with his d-partner Jonas Brodin, to be named to a postseason All-NHL Team.

The 28-year-old led all skaters in ice-time per game while setting a franchise record in the process. Suter finished with 32 points, third amongst all defensemen.

The Madison, WIsc. native finished as the runner-up for the Norris Trophy given out to the league's top defenseman. P.K. Subban won that honor.
