During his playing career, Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin has been collecting memorabilia, such as sticks from his favorite players or gear from his milestone moments, in two mini-museums located at his Northern Virginia and Moscow homes.
And over the last month, Ovechkin has received several new exhibition items.
One piece we already knew was being added to the museums was a painting by Tony Harris. Harris painted every superstar player named to the NHL100 list and the Capitals commissioned the artist to honor Ovechkin’s 600th goal.
A source told RMNB that Ovechkin planned to keep his milestone 600-goal puck as well as the stick and gloves (his 16th pair) he used to score the goal in his own personal museum.

Recently, however, Nastya Ovechkina, Ovechkin’s wife, showed off on Instagram the Russian machine’s jersey from his 600th goal as well as his 1100th point.
CCM, Ovechkin’s equipment company, also mailed two gold sticks to commemorate Ovechkin’s 500th assist.

The sticks arrived in early March to the Ovechkins home.
