NHL All Star Teams

I'm including the unofficial GM-voted teams from the late 20s when available. 3rd Team All Stars are unofficial but based off the same pool of votes that determine 1st and 2nd Team.

George Hainsworth
  • no records past 1st Team for 1927, but Hainsworth had the lowest GAA
  • 2nd Team All Star (1928), behind Roy Worters, over Alec Connell
  • no records past 1st Team for 1929, but Hainsworth had the lowest GAA
  • no records for 1930, but Charlie Gardiner led goalies in Hart voting
  • 3rd Team All Star (1932) behind Charlie Gardiner and Tiny Thompson
Hainsworth appears to be 4th in All Star voting in 1931 and 1936 and 5th in 1934 and 1935

Tiny Thompson
  • no records for 1930, but Thompson had the lowest GAA as Charlie Gardiner led all goalies in Hart voting
  • 2nd Team All Star (1931) behind Charlie Gardiner, ahead of Roy Worters
  • 3rd Team All Star (1934) behind Charlie Gardiner and Roy Worters
  • 2nd Team All Star (1935) behind Lorne Chabot, ahead of Roy Worters
  • 1st Team All Star (1936) ahead of Wilf Cude and Mike Karakas (Thompson's 3rd Vezina season)
  • 3rd Team All Star (1937) behind Normie Smith and Wilf Cude
  • 1st Team All Star (1938) ahead of Dave Kerr and Wilf Cude (Thompson's 4th Vezina)
In 1933, Thompson won his second Vezina for best GAA but was 4th in All Star voting behind John Ross Roach, Charlie Gardiner, and Roy Worters. Otherwise unheard of in this era.

Harry Lumley
  • 3rd Team All Star (1946) behind Bill Durnan and Frank Brimsek
  • 1st Team All Star (1954) ahead of Terry Sawchuk and Al Rollins
  • 1st Team All Star (1955) ahead of Terry Sawchuk and Jacques Plante
Lumley was 4th in 1947 and 5th in 1948 (out of 6 goalies).

Gump Worsley
  • 3rd Team All Star (1956) behind Glenn Hall and Jacques Plante
  • 3rd Team All Star (1961) behind Johnny Bower and Glenn Hall
  • 2nd Team All Star (1966) behind Glenn Hall, ahead of Roger Crozier
  • 1st Team All Star (1968) ahead of Ed Giacomin and Johnny Bower
Worsely was a also a distant 4th in 1963

Ed Giacomin
  • 1st Team All Star (1967) ahead of Glenn Hall and Denis DeJordy
  • 2nd Team All Star (1968) behind Gump Worsley, ahead of Johnny Bower
  • 2nd Team All Star (1969) behind Glenn Hall, ahead of Jacques Plante
  • 2nd Team All Star (1970) behind Tony Esposito, ahead of Jacques Plante
  • 1st Team All Star (1971) ahead of Tony Esposito and Jacques Plante
Giacomin finished 6th in 1973 - behind his teammate Gilles Villemure who was 3rd.

Rogie Vachon
  • 2nd Team All Star (1975) behind Bernie Parent, ahead of Gary Smith
  • 2nd Team All Star (1977) behind Ken Dryden, ahead of Chico Resch
Vachon finished 4th in 1974 and 1978.

Billy Smith
  • 1st Team All Star (1982) - over Grant Fuhr and Rick Wamsley
Smith was a 1st Team All Star in 1982 by a wide margin, but this is the only season he received a significant number of votes. GMs gave him the Vezina in 1982 (the first voted on Vezina), and he was 4th in Vezina voting in 1983 (much higher than he was in All Star voting).

Grant Fuhr
  • 2nd Team All Star (1982) behind Billy Smith, over Rick Wamsley
  • 3rd Team All Star (1986) behind John Vanbiesbrouck and Bob Froese
  • 3rd Team All Star (1987) behind Ron Hextall and Mike Liut
  • 1st Team All Star (1988) ahead of Patrick Roy and Tom Barrasso
Fuhr was 6th in both Vezina and All-Star voting in 1996.
