Description

 

Meet Alex Ovechkin, the NHL’s greatest goal-scorer of the 21st century!

 

 

Alex Ovechkin is already the greatest goal-scorer of the 21st century. He holds one of the most famous shots in NHL history, a blazing one-timer from the top of the left circle. Alex was born in Russia to a family of top athletes — none of them hockey players. His path to the NHL came after proving himself with the legendary Moscow Dynamo in the Russian Hockey Super league.

 

 

Drafted by the Washington Capitals in 2004, he’s been the anchor of his team ever since. It was a long time in coming, but on June 7, 2018, the Capitals defeated the Vegas Golden Knights and Alex was finally a Stanley Cup champion! Victory was made sweeter when Alex was voted winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP. “Alexander the Great” is still playing at the top of his game, with a chance to become No. 1 goal scorer in NHL history!

 

 

This full-colour, easy-to-read biography is packed with photos and has 16 pages of hockey action comic sequences. It’s sure to be a favourite read with his legions of young fans!
