Alexander Mikhailovich “Alex” Ovechkin (born September 17, 1985) is a Russian professional ice hockey winger and captain of the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League (NHL). Prior to playing in the NHL, Ovechkin played for HC Dynamo Moscow of the Russian Superleague for four seasons from 2001 until 2005, and he played for Dynamo again (this time in the Kontinental Hockey League) during the 2012–13 NHL lockout. Ovechkin was the first overall selection in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, drafted from Dynamo after three seasons with the club. Since the 2004–05 NHL season was lost because of a lockout, Ovechkin remained with Dynamo for one more season before transferring to the NHL for the 2005–06 season, in which he won the Calder Memorial Trophy as rookie of the year, scoring 52 goals and 54 assists to lead all rookies with 106 points.

During the 2007–08 season, he led the NHL with 65 goals and 112 points to capture the Rocket Richard and Art Ross Trophies. That season he also won the Lester B. Pearson Award as the top player voted by the NHL Players’ Association and the Hart Memorial Trophy as the league’s MVP. He is the only player to win all four awards since the Rocket Richard Trophy’s inception in 1999. He would lead Team Russia to a gold medal at the World Championships the same year. In 2009, he again won the Hart Memorial Trophy as league MVP, the Lester B. Pearson Award, and the Rocket Richard Trophy. Ovechkin also led the Capitals to their second consecutive division title. He won the Ted Lindsay Award, the new name of the Pearson Award, for a third straight year in 2010, as well as being named to the First All-Star Team for a fifth consecutive season. Ovechkin remained among league leaders in scoring in the 2010–11 season (85 points, seventh in the NHL) and among the league leaders in goals scored in the 2011–12 season (38 goals, fifth in the NHL). In the 2013 NHL shortened lockout season, Ovechkin led the league in goals with 32, winning him his third Rocket Richard and Hart trophies. Considered a power forward,[1][2][3] Ovechkin is also known for being a physical player, and one of the toughest players in the NHL.[4] Ovechkin scored his 500th and 501st NHL goals on January 10, 2016 against the Ottawa Senators becoming the fifth fastest player and first Russian member of the NHL to reach the 500-plus goal mark.[5] (Wikipedia)
