Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin has been doing the Russian media rounds since returning to his home country for the offseason. Ovi stopped by the studio of Russian soccer-based YouTube channel, It’s Football, Bro! for an over hour long conversation about a wide variety of topics this past Thursday.
Before having to name which five players he would pick to join him on a “symbolic all-time team”, Ovi was asked to pick which current NHL player’s jersey he would buy if forced to choose just one.
The Great Eight, who himself had the top-selling jersey in the NHL for the second consecutive season, wasted little time before giving his answer.
