Alex Ovechkin has reached 600 career goals, but how well do you know the details of the Washington Capitals star’s scoring dominance? Test your knowledge here!
I just have to put the puck in and do my job, Ovechkin said after scoring his 40th goal of the season at the Stadium Series game in Annapolis on March 3. Forty is nice, but 50 is better.
Greeting Ovechkin in the locker room, owner Ted Leonsis took the moment to express his gratitude for 600 goals over the past 13 seasons.
I told him I loved him and respected him and was very grateful and appreciated everything he’s done for the fans and for our team and looking forward to the next 100 goals, Leonsis said. We should never take Alex for granted. It’s really remarkable what he’s accomplished.
Ovechkin was drafted first overall by Washington in 2004. Since entering the NHL in 2005, no one has come close to matching Ovechkin’s goal totals, as he has nearly 200 more tallies than the next highest scorer, Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins (404). Ovechkin has scored more than 50 goals in a season seven times and more than 40 goals nine times.
Dec. 15: Galvis should remain a starter in San Diego and maintain NL-only middle-infield value, but this deal was about clearing shortstop for J.P. Crawford in Philadelphia. Crawford is the better fantasy pick thanks to his speed.
Dec. 14: Ozuna, who was likely due some regression anyway, is about as valuable in fantasy in St. Louis as he was in Miami. The ballpark factors are similar for righty power and the Cardinals (4.7) scored almost the same rate of runs per game in 2017 as the Marlins (4.8). Alcantara is a prospect to watch in Miami, where he’s more likely to make the team out of spring training. Read more from Tristan H. Cockcroft.
All jokes set aside, the Clippers would either have to hit on one of those 15th-pick-caliber future superstars and have him develop into that superstardom relatively quickly or hit a home run in free agency to bring in the upper-level talent to lead their quality depth back to contention. So … where does this Clippers Process leave the fantasy prospects of the Clips, both this season and next?
