Wild defenseman Ryan Suter named to NHL's First All-Star team

Defenseman Ryan Suter's first season with the Minnesota Wild has proven to be award-winning.

Suter, who joined the Wild a year ago on a 13-year contract, was named to the NHL's first All-Star team on Tuesday, becoming the first player in Wild history to earn the distinction.

Suter totaled 28 assists in the 2012-13 season to rank first on the Wild and third in the league among defensemen. On top of setting a franchise record for time on the ice (27:16), he accounted for four goals (second-most among defensemen).

His high statistical output helped him become a finalist for the NHL's Norris Trophy, given to the league's top defenseman, finishing second behind Montreal's P.K. Subban.
