Alex Ovechkin is one of the greatest goal scorers in NHL history. He’s currently eighth all-time in goals with 706. He scores so regularly on a one-timer from the left circle that it’s been nicknamed Ovi’s Office.
But there was once a time when Ovechkin scored in more unique ways – such as his rookie season 15 years ago. Ovechkin tallied an astonishing 52 times, utilizing his speed and stick stickhandling ability to score goals off the rush.
It’s like he was a different player.
