Alex Ovechkin is the captain of the Washington Capitals in the NHL. He is generally considered to be one of the best hockey players in the world.


Ovechkin is a controversial figure in general sports reporting: some call him the best goal-scorer, others call him defensively irresponsible and even call for a trade. Consequently, many (RPF) fans feel very defensive about him.[1]

(add something about dissatisfaction with how he's portrayed in fic (asshole or complete goofball) etc.)

Ovechkin is shipped with his media-hyped rival Sidney Crosby, his former teammate and good friend Alexander Semin, his old mostly-friend Evgeni Malkin, and his teammate Nicklas Backstrom. He also often appears as a side character especially in Sid/Geno fic, mostly as a matchmaker.
