Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Headed to Worlds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin will join Team Russia for the 2019 IIHF World Championship.

Ovechkin will join teammates Dmitry Orlov and Evgeny Kuznetsov following a disappointing first-round playoff exit at the hands of the Hurricanes. The 33-year-old winger posted four goals and nine points in seven playoff games.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Pots goal before ejection
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin recorded a goal, a minus-2 rating, three shots, five hits and 12 penalty minutes during Monday's 5-2 loss over the Hurricanes in Game 6.

Ovechkin did everything he could to secure a win for the Capitals, but his frustration with the officials following a disallowed goal in the third period boiled over and got him tossed in the final minutes. The reigning Conn Smythe Trophy-winner has been his usual excellent self in the playoffs with four goals and eight points against the Hurricanes in Round 1. The Capitals will need more of the same if they are to survive Game 7 on Wednesday.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Big in hits and points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored a power-play goal, delivered two helpers and dished a season-high 11 hits in Saturday's 6-0 win over the Hurricanes in Game 5.

Ovechkin left a mark both on the scoresheet and on the bodies of the Hurricanes with Saturday's effort. He's up to three goals and four helpers in five games, to go with 29 hits and 15 shots on goal. All three of his tallies in the series have come on the power play.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Scores from usual office again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored the Capitals' lone goal in a 2-1 loss to the Hurricanes in Game 4 on Thursday.

Ovie was in his office -- the left circle -- and he did what he does best. He fired a one-timer, this time on the power play. Ovechkin has two goals and two assists in four postseason games. And 63 goals and 121 points in 124 career playoff games. That kind of consistency is what fantasy playoff championships are built on.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Plays provider in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin racked up two assists, four shots and seven hits in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Hurricanes in Game 2 of their first-round series.

With three points and 13 hits through two games, Ovechkin is contributing in multiple ways as the Capitals move ahead 2-0 in the series. He had 89 points in 81 appearances this season, including 51 goals. Much of the Capitals' offense flows through the Russian winger, who is capable of reaping big rewards for fantasy owners.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Snipes on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin finished Thursday's win with a goal, as Washington defeated the Hurricanes 4-2 in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series.

The Great Eight scored on one of his patented power-play one-timers, and because Carolina scored twice in the third, Ovechkin's goal actually wound up being the game-winner. He led all skaters in power-play ice time (6:07).

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: First to 50 goals this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored twice Saturday in a 6-3 win over the Lightning.

The goals were numbers 50 and 51. Ovechkin became the third player in NHL history with at least eight 50-goal seasons. The only other two? Wayne Gretzky and Mike Bossy, who both had nine. Ovie also moved past Brendan Shanahan for 13th in goals (658) in history. And he became the third-oldest NHLer to score 50 in a season, behind Johnny Bucyk and Jaromir Jagr. It's just another record-setting night for Alexander the Gr8.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Stays hot against Canes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Hurricanes.

The veteran superstar has three goals and 10 points in the last eight games, helping to carry the Caps to the top of the Metropolitan Division standings. Ovie needs to light the light just once in the final five games to record his eighth career 50-goal campaign -- which would leave him one shy of the NHL record of nine, held by Wayne Gretzky and Mike Bossy.

March 17, 2019 10:28 AM
Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Closing in on 50 goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored two goals Saturday in a 6-3 loss to the Lightning.

The league leader had gone four games without a snipe, but now Ovechkin has 48. And a three-game, four-point scoring streak. Ovie's shooting percentage this season has been better than average (16.6 vs. 12.6), and he's still an epic sniper.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Posts 1,200th career point Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin recorded an assist, five shots and eight hits during Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Penguins.

The helper was the 547th of his NHL career, pushing him to the 1,200-point mark in just 1,072 games in his 14th season with the Capitals. With 46 goals and 78 points in 69 games, the 33-year-old winger is among the elite fantasy performers once again in 2018-19.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: One of each in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored a goal and picked up an assist in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Flyers.

To get things going, Ovechkin tallied the primary helper on Tom Wilson's first-period goal. Then, early in the middle frame, the Caps' captain scored his 16th power-play goal of the season to give Washington a three-goal lead. The 33-year-old just wrapped up a scorching February that saw him find the scoresheet in 11 of 13 games. For the season, Ovechkin is up to 46 goals and 77 points.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Fails to find scoresheet in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin was held pointless Sunday but led the team with six shots on goal as part of a 3-2 shootout win over the Rangers.

The Russian sits third in the NHL with 266 shots, as Ovechkin remains one of the biggest threats to score in the league. Sitting at 45 goals, Ovi figures to crack 50 before the season is over, which would give him six campaigns of 50-plus goals (back in 2007-08, he scored 65, the one and only time No. 8 has scored 60 or more in a single season).

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Makes NHL history
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin tallied a goal, five shots and two hits during Friday's 3-1 victory over the Islanders.

Ovechkin is now the only player in NHL history to score 45 goals in 10 or more seasons. The 33-year-old winger continues to pad his Hall-of-Fame resume in his 14th season, with his 2018-19 totals consisting of 75 points, 260 shots and 175 hits in 64 games.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Notches 30th assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin recorded two assists and six shots during Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Senators.

Ovechkin has amassed 44 goals and 74 points in 63 games as he shows no signs of slowing down in his 14th NHL season.

February 25, 2019 01:52 PM
Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Riding six-game scoring streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin recorded an assist, three shots and three hits during Sunday's 6-5 overtime win against the Rangers.

Ovechkin has compiled six goals and eight points over that span and continues to pace the league with 44 markers in 62 games this season. Another 50-goal season is well within reach for the 33-year-old winger -- as is an eighth Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Tingles twine in fifth straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored his 44th goal of the season in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Sabres.

Ovie has tingled the twine in five straight games (six goals, one assist). At 33, Ovechkin is pacing toward his best offensive output since 2009-10 and just his second 60-goal season. He has 10 seasons with at least 44 goals and 651 in his career, all with the Caps. Alexander the Gr8 really is a fitting nickname. This guy continues to amaze.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Nets 650th NHL goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored his 650th NHL goal Thursday in a 3-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

He sits 14th on the all-time goal list and is just six from tying Brendan Shanahan (656). The goal was classic Ovie -- he wired a one-timer from the left faceoff circle on the power play. It also extended Ovechkin's current goal streak to four games and five goals (six points).

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Powerful pair of goals Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin netted two goals with the man advantage in a 3-2 win over the Kings on Monday.

A vintage performance from the Russian sees his league-leading total rise to 42 tallies this season. Ovechkin picked up four goals and an assist on the Capitals' three-game swing through California. For the year, he's up to 69 points in 59 games, with 21 of those points coming on the power play.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Joins elite club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin opened the scoring with his 40th of the year in a 5-2 loss to the Ducks on Sunday.

Sure, the loss stings, but Ovechkin now has his 10th 40-goal season, joining only Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Marcel Dionne in that rarefied air. He remains the gold standard for goal scoring in the league. Ovechkin also supplied seven shots on goal and five hits in a busy performance.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Notches two points Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin recorded a goal, a power-play assist and four shots during Thursday's 5-1 win over the Sharks.

Ovechkin continues to pace the NHL with 39 goals and has been heating up with two goals and nine points in seven games since the All-Star break. Keep him rolling.
