Often referred to as “Ovi” or “The Great Eight”, Alex Ovechkin is one of the most prolific goal scorers in the modern NHL and is widely considered one of the greatest to ever play the game. Ovechkin is a 8 time NHL All-Star, 9 time NHL scoring leader, 3 time NHL MVP and 2018 Stanley Cup Champion and was named one of the 100 Greatest NHL Players of all time in 2017. Drafted 1st overall in the 2004 NHL Draft, Ovechkin missed the 2004-05 season due to the NHL Lockout, winning the Rookie of the Year award upon the resumption of play the following season. Ovechkin is just the 8th player in NHL History to have reached the 700 career goals milestone. Only Wayne Gretzky achieved the 700 goal milestone faster and at a younger age.
