  • Ovechkin (undisclosed) agreed to terms on a five-year, $47.5 million contract with Washington on Tuesday. At 35 years of age, this likely will be the final contract of Ovechkin's NHL career. The world-class winger's 24 goals this past year was the lowest of his career but certainly had more to do with the shortened season than a drop-off in production. Ovechkin will no doubt continue racking up goals for the Caps over the next five years and could conceivably challenge Wayne Gretzky's NHL-leading 894 goal total.

  • Ovechkin (undisclosed) was not included on Washington's protected-player list Sunday ahead of Wednesday's Expansion Draft. It's common knowledge that Ovechkin, an unrestricted free agent come July 28, wishes to sign another deal with the Capitals and finish his storied career in D.C. The Kraken wouldn't be able to select the superstar without negotiating a new contract with him, anyway, so his being formally exposed to the draft basically serves to allow the Capitals to protect an additional player.

  • Ovechkin will not join Russia for the 2021 IIHF World Championships due to an undisclosed injury. Ovechkin was sidelined for seven of the Caps' last eight regular-season contests with a lower-body injury, so it's possible the same issue is what is keeping him out of the international tournament. During the six playoff contests, the world-class winger recorded two goals on 24 shots and two assists, including a trio of power-play points. The 35-year-old Russian racked up 24 goals in 45 games this season and should be capable of continuing to challenge for the Rocket Richard Trophy next year.

  • Ovechkin scored a power-play goal in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Bruins in Game 4 of their first-round series. The tally was pure luck, as Ovie broke his stick taking a shot and the errant puck deflected off Brandon Carlo into the back of the Boston net, but it represented the only high point for Washington on the night. Ovechkin has scored goals in two straight games and has points in four straight, but with the Caps facing elimination in Game 5 he'll need to find another gear to keep his team alive.

  • Ovechkin scored a power-play goal on four shots in Wednesday's 3-2 double-overtime loss to Boston in Game 3. He also had four hits and two PIM. Anthony Mantha stole a puck below the Boston goal line and centered in front to Ovechkin, who buried it for his first goal of the series. The 35-year-old Ovechkin has totaled three points and 12 shots on goal through the first three games of the playoffs.
