SI's Best Photos of Alex Ovechkin

Since winning NHL Rookie of the Year for 2005-06, three-time MVP Alex Ovechkin has led the league in goals six times — including the past four consecutive seasons (2012-16). On Jan. 11, 2017, Ovie scored his 1,000th NHL point with a goal 35 seconds into the game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. With 545 goals and 455 assists in 880 NHL games, all with the Capitals, he's the second-fastest active player to hit the mark, behind only Jaromir Jagr. Here, we present SI's best photos of Alexander "The Great."
