Alex Ovechkin is a top candidate for the Hart Trophy again this season. And if the national media has been paying any attention at all, Ovechkin will also be a finalist for the King Clancy Memorial Trophy at the end of the year too.
Ovechkin’s contributions to the community include giving away a car, fulfilling the wish of an 8-year-old with diabetes, going out on a sushi date with a 10-year-old with Down Syndrome, giving away countless sticks and pucks, and secretly supporting a bunch of Russian orphanages.
On Tuesday, the Capitals announced on Facebook that Ovechkin was fulfilling another young fan’s wish: Reagan Everett got a signed stick from the Russian Machine after Tuesday’s practice. According to the team he will “help cheer on the Caps during [the Rangers game Wednesday] night!”
On Twitter, Reagan called it the “best day of my life.”

This year, Ovechkin has helped countless other people have days like Reagan’s.
