Russian hockey player and captain of the National Hockey League (NHL) club “Washington Capitals” Alexander Ovechkin wants to end his career on a positive note. Russian Alexander Ovechkin talked about it on the official Washington Capitals website.
“Not yet, I have a few more years on my contract. I have always said that I want to complete my degree with high standards. Still, four years away, which is a long time,” Ovechkin said.
The NHL club announced its refusal to play in Europe due to the ban on the entry of Russians
Ovechkin noted that he does not think about personal records and goals in the National Hockey League (NHL). “I don’t think about it at all, I just go day by day. Today we skate a lot in training, tomorrow we will continue to work hard. Chasing Geordie Gow? I need time, I won’t be able to score 21 goals in one match”, he said.
The Russian is third on the list of the best scorers in the history of the NHL, having scored 780 goals, second only to Gordie Howe (801) and Wayne Gretzky (894).
Ovechkin was a 12-time NHL All-Star, leading the regular season nine times and three-time MVP. The Russian has played for Washington since 2005, won a Stanley Cup in 2018 and extended his contract with the club for five years and $47.5 million through 2021.
The 36-year-old hockey player is a graduate of Dynamo Moscow, where he won the Gagarin Cup in 2013, and is also the top Russian scorer in NHL history.
