Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Season put on hiatus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin and the Capitals learned Thursday the NHL announced that the 2019-20 season has been suspended until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement released Thursday, commissioner Gary Bettman said "In light of ongoing developments resulting from the coronavirus, and after consulting with medical experts and convening a conference call of the Board of Governors, the National Hockey League is announcing today that it will pause the 2019-20 season beginning with tonight's games." Bettman went on to say "Our goal is to resume play as soon as it is appropriate and prudent so that we will be able to complete the season and award the Stanley Cup. Until then, we thank NHL fans for your patience and hope you stay healthy."

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Collects goal, assist in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored a goal and added an assist with six shots in Monday's 3-2 shootout loss to Buffalo.

Ovechkin scored a nifty goal off an offensive-zone faceoff to get the Capitals on the board early in the second period. He also drew the primary helper on Dmitry Orlov's game-tying goal just under 10 minutes later. The Washington captain has five goals in his last five games and needs to light the lamp two more times for his ninth 50-goal campaign.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Pots two third-period goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored twice on five shots in Thursday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Rangers.

Both of Ovechkin's tallies came in the third period, and the second goal tied the game with 43 seconds left. Ovechkin grabbing a share of the league goals lead with his 47th would be the top story of the game most of the time, but this night belonged to New York's Mika Zibanejad, who three-upped Ovechkin with a five-goal performance.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Paces offense with three points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored a pair of goals and dished an assist in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Wild.

The first of Ovechkin's two tallies came on the power play. The Russian winger is up to 45 goals, 63 points, 298 shots and 170 hits through 64 games this season. He's on pace to reach 50 scores for the ninth time in his career despite a somewhat diminished overall stat line.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Tallies 43rd goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored a goal in a 4-3 shootout victory over the Jets on Tuesday.

The 34-year-old went five straight games without scoring once he was closing in on 700 career goals, but Ovechkin is back on track now with three goals in his last four games. Even with the drought, he's only two goals behind the league leader and is on pace for another 50-goal campaign. Ovechkin has 43 goals and 60 points with a minus-13 rating in 62 games this season.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Joins 700 club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored his 42nd goal of the season in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Devils.

He ripped the puck past Mackenzie Blackwood on a vintage Ovie one-timer early in the third period to tie the score at 2-2, but the Caps couldn't finish the job. Ovechkin is now one of eight players in NHL history with 700 career goals, and with nine more he'll move past former Capitals sniper Mike Gartner into seventh place on the all-time list.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Pockets No. 699
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored a goal on six shots while tallying three hits in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to Montreal.

Ovechkin snapped his five-game scoring drought with a first-period tally Thursday, giving him 41 goals this season and 699 for his career. The 6-foot-3 winger has averaged 5.5 shots on goal over the last six games as he continues to chase down his latest milestone. He'll get another crack at No. 700 in New Jersey on Saturday.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Racks up another hat trick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored three straight goals in the third period during Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

With the Caps down 2-1 just over six minutes remaining in the game, Ovechkin -- who didn't even have a shot on net to that point -- got to work, beating Jonathan Quick twice in a 70-second span before capping his evening with an empty-net tally. The future Hall of Famer has now reached 40 goals in a season for the 11th time thanks to a ridiculous stretch that has seen him light the lamp 16 times in his last 10 games. Ovechkin sits just two goals shy of 700 for his illustrious career.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Tallies two more goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored two goals on 11 shots on net in a 5-3 victory over the Senators on Friday.

The "Great 8" is on quite a scoring spree, as he has multiple goals in four of the last five games. Since Jan. 7, Ovechkin has 13 goals in eight contests, including 11 in the past five games. With his two goals Friday, he moved past Mark Messier for eighth on the NHL's all-time goals list. He could be on his way to another Rocket Richard Trophy with 37 goals and 54 points in 51 games this season, though David Pastrnak (37 goals) and Auston Matthews (36) are keeping pace with the prolific sniper.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Notches pair of points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored a goal and had a power-play assist in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to Nashville.

The Great Eight sits in sole possession of ninth place on the all-time goals list with 693. Ovechkin passed Steve Yzerman with his 35th marker of 2019-20 before drawing the secondary assist on Tom Wilson's power-play goal midway through the second period. Ultimately, Ovi and the Caps were outscored 2-0 over the game's final 20 minutes, but Washington's captain has scored nine goals in four games.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Set to skip All-Star Game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Per Samantha Pell of The Washington Post, Ovechkin has opted to skip the All-Star Game, which means he'll have to serve a one-game suspension Monday against Montreal.

At this stage in his career, Ovechkin is far more concerned about being healthy and well rested for the second half of the season than participating in the meaningless All-Star Game, but he'll have to accept a league-mandated one-game suspension as a result. The 34-year-old sniper will have to watch Monday's matchup with Montreal from the press box, but he'll be back in the lineup against the Predators on Wednesday.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Second straight hat trick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored three goals in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Islanders.

He opened the scoring midway through the first period, then potted two more in the third as the Caps rallied from a 4-1 deficit. Amazingly, Ovie found twine with his only three shots on the afternoon, but amazing feats are nothing new for the future Hall of Famer -- he's recorded hat tricks in back-to-back games and lit the lamp 10 times in his last six contests, and the surge has moved him into a tie with Steve Yzerman for ninth place on the NHL's all-time goal-scoring list at 692. Next up: Mark Messier in eighth with 694.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Posts 23rd career hat trick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin racked up three goals -- one on the power play -- on five shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over New Jersey.

The Russian recorded his 23rd career hat trick during Thursday's game, and he's now up to 31 goals, 47 points and 219 shots through 48 games this season. Ovechkin also announced following Thursday's game that he will serve his one-game suspension for skipping the All-Star Game in the first game after the break against Montreal, per Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic. The 34-year-old is now just two goals away from passing Mario Lemieux (690 career goals) for 10th on the NHL's all-time list.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Supplies only offense in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored two goals, one on the power play, in Monday's 2-0 win over the Hurricanes.

He beat Petr Mrazek twice in a little over five minutes during the first period, supplying the only offense on the night. It's Ovechkin's second two-goal performance in the last four games, and he's racked up seven goals and 11 points in his last 12 contests. The 34-year-old is now five tallies away from passing Mario Lemieux (690 career goals) and moving into 10th place on the NHL's all-time list.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Lights lamp twice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored two goals on six shots, adding a blocked shot and a plus-3 rating, in Tuesday's 6-1 win over the Senators.

It's Ovie's first multi-goal performance since he recorded a hat trick against the Red Wings on Nov. 30. The 34-year-old has been plenty productive this season, scoring 26 goals and 42 points through 44 games, and he's on the verge of breaking into the NHL's all-time top 10 in goal scoring -- Ovechkin is currently tied with Teemu Selanne in 11th, and he needs only seven more tallies to pass Mario Lemieux and move into 10th.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Extends point streak with assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin posted a power-play assist in Friday's 4-3 win over the Hurricanes.

Ovechkin set up Lars Eller at 2:29 of the third period to give the Capitals a 3-1 lead at the time. In his last five games, Ovechkin has two goals and three helpers. He's at 40 points through 42 games this year, not too far off of last season's 89-point pace. The Russian star has added 197 shots on goal and 121 hits.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Will skip All-Star Game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin will not participate in this season's All-Star Game, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

Ovechkin made the announcement to reporters following Friday's game versus the Blue Jackets. The 34-year-old was voted in as the Metropolitan Division captain, but since he won't be participating, he will serve a league-mandated one-game suspension either before or after the Jan. 25 exhibition. Ovechkin cited a need to rest his body to be ready for the second half of the season as the reason for his decision.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Two-point effort in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 6-3 win over the Devils.

It was a typically dynamic outing for Ovie, who added four shots, two hits and a plus-3 rating to his ledger. He's been struggling recently, going scoreless in six of his prior seven games, but he could heat up at any time and he's hardly been slacking overall, posting 22 goals and 35 points in 36 games.

December 10, 2019 03:00 PM
Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Two-point effort in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored a goal and added an assist in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.

The 34-year-old superstar had looked a little out of sorts lately without Nicklas Backstrom (upper body) as his set-up man. Ovie notched a four-point night on Nov. 30 but otherwise had only two goals in the other seven games while Backstrom was sidelined, and his return boosted Ovechkin to his second multi-point performance in the last month. He still has a cool 21 goals and 33 points through 32 games, putting him on pace for the ninth 50-goal campaign of his illustrious career -- an achievement that would tie him with Wayne Gretzky and Mike Bossy for the most such seasons in NHL history.

Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Hat trick plus helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ovechkin scored three goals and added an assist in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Red Wings.

After wheeling around the net and scoring his first goal of the evening from a sharp angle midway through the second period, Ovie set up Tom Wilson in the third for what proved to be the game-winner before capping things off with two empty-net tallies. The future Hall of Famer hadn't recorded a multi-point game since Nov. 7, but on the year Ovechkin still has 20 goals and 31 points through 28 contests.
