Alex Ovechkin on ‘legendary’ 1,000 point club: It would be nice to be in same company as Sergei Fedorov
Wednesday morning after practice, Alex Ovechkin met with the media and discussed his march to 1,000 points. With a goal or assist tonight, Ovechkin will hit the historic milestone against the team’s biggest rival, the Pittsburgh Penguins, on national TV.
Ovechkin reflected on his career, looked forward to his family being at the game, and also mentioned how honored he would be to join fellow Russian Sergei Fedorov in the record books.
“Yeah, it’s small, but it’s a very legendary club,” Ovechkin said. “I got lucky to play with Fedorov for a couple years and knowing him as a person. It would be nice to be with him in the same company.”
Fedorov was one of Ovechkin’s favorite players growing up as a kid.
