  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Passes 1,000-point threshold Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/11/17) Ovechkin scored two goals in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Penguins to give him 1,001 points in his career.

    The suspense was short-lived as Ovechkin hit the 1,000 point milestone by wristing one past Marc-Andre Fleury just 35 seconds into the contest. The "Great 8" has had an incredible career in DC needing just 880 games to hit 546 goals and 1,001 points. His third multi-goal game of the season brings him to 21 goals and 35 points at the midway point, which means he'll need to step it up if he is to hit 50 goals for a fourth consecutive season. Nonetheless, the Russian winger has delighted and amazed Capitals fans -- and fantasy owners-- throughout his career and Wednesday's milestone is a just reward for one of the most electrifying players in recent memory.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Posts three-point night against Canadiens

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/9/17) Ovechkin scored a power-play goal and added two even-strength assists with five shots on net during Monday's win over Montreal.

    With just 19 tallies through 40 games, Ovechkin has an uphill climb ahead if he's going to post his fourth consecutive 50-goal campaign. Still, No. 87 is a must-start fantasy asset with huge upside, and it isn't out of the question that the offensive flood gates open for him going forward. In fact, if there is such thing as a buy-low opportunity with Ovechkin, it's encouraged.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Sinks Leafs early in OT

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/4/17) Ovechkin scored just 22 seconds into overtime Tuesday, delivering a 6-5 win over the Leafs. He took five shots and racked up six PIM.

    This season's been something less than spectacular for Ovechkin, as he's on pace for his worst non-lockout-shortened point total. Sure, 60-plus points would be amazing for almost anyone else, but that'd be a huge disappointment from a guy who's scored 50 goals in three straight seasons. It hasn't been bad luck -- Ovechkin's shooting percentage is fairly stable, but he simply isn't shooting as much. He's on pace to take 73 fewer shots this year than he did last year. If that trend turns around, his scoring pace will probably tick up with it.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Nets fifth goal in last nine games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/31/16) Ovechkin notched his 17th goal of the season in Saturday's Saturday's 6-2 win over New Jersey.

    Ovie has nine points, including five goals, in his last nine games and is tied for sixth in snipes in the NHL with Cam Atkinson and Wayne Simmonds. Yes, those names are odd partners on the goals list, in large part because Ovechkin had only tapped in 11 goals in his first 26 games. Expect an improved second half, but he'll need to really amp up the effort to register his fourth-consecutive and eighth-career 50-plus goal season.

    Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Scores again, adds assist

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/27/16) Ovechkin scored a goal on nine shots and added an assist during Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Islanders.

    Ovechkin has now scored in four of the last seven contests -- two markers during the power play -- totaling 30 shots on goal in the process. On top of the tallies, the Russian tacked on three helpers and a cool two PIM. The 31-year-old is finishing out 2016 strong and setting up for a monstrous January and beyond.
