The Great 8 sits just above Brad Marchand and fellow countryman Artemi Panarin. Ovechkin was the best left wing in NHL21, where he served as the cover athlete for the second time in his career.
Meanwhile, John Carlson is tied for the second-best defenseman in the game with Roman Josi at 90 overall, trailing only Victor Hedman’s 92 overall rating.
