Alex Ovechkin‘s missing front tooth has been part of his trademark smile since his rookie year. In the last round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, he enlarged his tooth gap when he cracked a lateral incisor.
Recently, it appears Ovechkin had some dental work done, fixing only the most recent break.
Here’s his newly-repaired smile on October 18 during the first period of the Panthers game.

For reference, here’s how the larger gap looked as recently as October 14.
