A lot of national media have called Alex Ovechkin selfish, among other awful things over the years. With that said, let’s talk about Ovechkin’s Saturday night in New Jersey.
The Russian machine had one of the most dominant performances of his career, including a sensational tally we’re calling The Goal Part II.
So how did Ovechkin celebrate? By thinking of someone else of course.
Ovechkin gave his stick away to four-year-old Caps fan, Landon W., after the game.
That gesture came on the heels of the Russian machine tossing Landon a puck during pre-game warm-ups.

Let’s recap some of Ovechkin’s good deeds this season. He gave a puck away to a Caps fan in Boston, went on a date with 10-year-old Ann (who had down syndrome), fulfilled Lauren Santora’s wish, and secretly supports 7 orphanages in his native Russia.
Hm, maybe Ovechkin is selfish. He tries to keep all these moments to himself.
