  • Ovechkin had a goal and three helpers in a 6-2 win over Chicago on Wednesday. What more can Ovechkin do for either the Capitals or fantasy owners at this point? He was already putting up huge totals in the goals department, and now he's racked up four assists in his past two games. Put simply, if you're fortunate enough to have him on your roster, you're a very happy owner.

  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Reaches 20 goals
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ovechkin had a goal and an assist in a 4-1 win over San Jose on Monday. Ovechkin not getting to 20 goals would be a lot more newsworthy, as it's never happened in his career, even in the lockout year. Much more interesting are his chances at putting up a huge number. He's currently on pace to score 62 goals, which would be second most in his career after the 2007-08 campaign that saw him score 65. That's the only time he's reached 60 goals, so he'd thrill owners if he hit that mark again.

  • Ovechkin showed off his sniping skills Saturday with a hat trick in a 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs. Ovie has a three-game, five-goal streak on the go. His recent success coincides with a reunion with Nicklas Backstrom, who knows precisely how to feed the puck into Ovechkin's wheelhouse. Ovie's hat trick moved him to the top of the goal-scoring list in the NHL (18). Expect an offensive run if the Caps keep Backstrom and Ovechkin together.

  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Tallies assist Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ovechkin recorded a power-play assist during Saturday's 3-1 win over the Wild. The 32-year-old Russian gave quite a scare when he left the ice in the second period, but was no worse for wear after posting his 20th point of the season. Fantasy owners are still looking for some consistency, but he does have 20 points in 21 games -- along with a host of peripheral stats (29 shots, 21 hits) so keep him in your lineup every night.

  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Makes brief exit
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ovechkin (face) will return to Saturday's game against Minnesota after being forced to miss a majority of the second period. Ovechkin suffered the injury when an attempted cross-ice pass by Minnesota's Chris Stewart ramped up Ovi's stick and struck him in the face. Through two periods, Ovechkin has played nearly eight-and-a-half minutes and mustered a single shot on goal.
