Ovechkin Out “No More Than Two Weeks”

The status on superstar forward Alex Ovechkin has changed quite a bit over the last couple of days, going from day-to-day to week-to-week to “hopefully it’s no more than two days.” By all accounts, it looks as though the Washington Capital and two-time NHL MVP is suffering from the worst injury of his young career […]

While Alexander Ovechkin might have avoided a suspension for slew-footing Thrashers’ forward Rich Peverley on Thursday, he was fined an “undisclosed” amount of money. There was also a minor penalty on the play that drew parallels to a recent similar play in which Anaheim’s Evgeni Artyukhin was suspended three games for slew-footing Dallas Stars’ defenceman […]
