Since beginning his professional hockey career when he was selected first overall by the Capitals in the 2004 NHL Draft, Alexander Ovechkin has become one of the most effective scorers in the league and a hockey fan favorite. Immediately upon taking the ice as a member of the NHL, Ovechkin earned a reputation as one of the top performers in the sport, scoring 52 goals and 54 assists, and won the Calder Memorial Trophy as rookie of the year. In the following seasons, Ovechkin emerged as the NHL’s top scorer and became the first player to win the Rocket Richard Trophy, Art Ross Trophy, Lester B. Pearson Award, and the Hart memorial Trophy in one season. The five-time NHL All-Star has not slowed down since he began tearing up professional hockey, while leading the Capitals to win five division titles and brought Team Russia to a gold medal at three World Championships.
As Alex Ovechkin continues to thoroughly write his name in NHL lore, Fanatics Authentic will be along for the ride to provide hockey fans with rare sports collectibles to honor every feat the Capitals legend adds to his resume.
