Before Ovechkin came to the NHL, Ovechkin played in Russia for HC Dynamo Moscow. Ovechkin played at Dynamo Moscow from 2001-2004.
In 2003, the Florida Panthers attempted to draft Ovechkin, but his birthday was 2 days past the cutoff date that season making him ineligible to be drafted.
Rick Dudley, the GM of the Florida Panthers tried to bypass this by saying that the pick was legitimate
because of leap years.In 2004 Ovie was drafted 1st overall by the Washington Capitals. Sadly, Ovechkin was picked the year that the
NHL was in the lockout.In 2006, his rookie year, Ovechkin added 54 assists to the 52 goals. BIOGRAPHY BIO CONT'D He also set a NHL record for longest goal streak by a rookie scoring goals in 7 consecutive games.
On December 15, 2006, Alex scored 6 seconds into the overtime period in a game against the Atlanta Thrashers. This was equal to the record time, shared/set by Mats Sundin and David Legwand.
Alex scored 52 goals as a rookie, 46 as a sophomore, and 65 in his 3rd year in the league.
Ovi plays the Left wing although he sometimes plays the point on the powerplay.

In the 2007-08 season, he won the Rocket Richard and Art Ross trophies. 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

Alex signed a new contract in January 2008 for 13 seasons. He will average 9 Million over the first 6 seasons, and around 10 Million for the final seven!

Alex's mother Tatyana Ovechkin was also an athlete and won two gold medals playing Basketball for Russia in the Summer Olympics, in 1976 and 1980. I admire Alex Ovechkin because:

He plays the game I love
He inspires me to play like him
He is one of the best to ever play the game Why I Admire Alex Ovechkin
