Since he was two years old, Alex Ovechkin’s parents knew he was destined to be a hockey star. Today, he is Captain of the Washington Capitals in the NHL and is a leader on the Russian Federation Team.

Ovechkin was the first overall pick in the 2004 draft however he didn’t play until the 2005/2006 season where he led the rookies in goals, points, power-play goals, and shots and was named to the NHL First All-Star Team, the first rookie to receive the honor in 15 years. After the season ended, Ovechkin received the Calder Memorial Trophy, awarded to the NHL’s best rookie.

Following the 2006/2007 NHL season, Ovechkin was awarded the Kharlamov Trophy, which honors the best Russian NHL player as voted by other Russian NHL players. During the 2007/2008 season, he led the NHL in goals and points, capturing the Richard and Art Ross Trophies. He also won the Lester B. Pearson Award as the top player voted by the NHLPA and the Hart Memorial Trophy as the league’s MVP.

In January 2008, Ovechkin signed a thirteen-year contract extension with the Capitals. On December 20, 2013, in a game against the Carolina Hurricanes, Ovechkin scored his 400th career goal. At the conclusion of the 2013/14 season, Ovechkin was awarded the Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy for most goals in the NHL.

Ovechkin started playing hockey at the age of seven. At age 16 he made his debut for Dynamo Moscow in the 2001/2002 season of the Russian Superleague. The following season he won the Superleague award for Best Left Wing and became the youngest Dynamo Moscow player to lead the team in scoring.
