On Wednesday afternoon, NHLPA’s Chris Lomon published an article entitled Teammates Talk On Alex Ovechkin. There’s lots of great stuff about how Ovi is one of the greatest players in the world. But I want to point you to my favorite quote from teammate Troy Brouwer.
“The one thing I would love the hockey world to know about Alex is that he has the worst style ever,” Brouwer said of his captain. “He only has a few suits and he wears a tuxedo shirt with one of his suits.”
Oh, c’mon, Troy. There’s no way that’s tru…

Okay, yup. Yeah, he’s 100% right.
And there’s no defending the sweatpants-over-jeans look.
Brouwer also had some nice things to say too.
“When it comes to the seeing Alex’s approach, I have learned not to take myself too seriously,” Brouwer said. “He always likes to joke and keep it light. When you see how much scrutiny he gets some days and can shrug it off and keep playing, it is impressive.”
