Alex Ovechkin just made the night of a Capitals fan who drove 3,000 kilometers (1,865 miles) to see him play at Canadian Tire Centre.
Caps fan Honlee, who lives in Quebec, made a sign for Ovi in warmups that asked for a selfie.
Ovi did her one better!

The Capitals shared video of Ovi going down the tunnel to give Honlee a valuable, historic collectible: his used hockey stick.

Honlee took a photo with the hockey stick on the main concourse.
Update: Ovi signed the stick too.
KM travelled: 3000
Getting a signed stick from the greatest player of my generation: priceless
