Ovechkin is the only Capitals forward in the top 20 and ranks fourth, trailing Hart Trophy finalist Artemi Panarin, Pastrnak, and last year’s Hart Trophy winner Nikita Kucherov.
Ovechkin had 67 points (48g, 19a) in 68 games last season. He was on pace for 57 goals before the coronavirus pandemic ended the season early.
