Alex Ovechkin on a possible contract extension with the Capitals: I’m ‘not even talking, not even thinking about it’
Alex Ovechkin’s historic 13-year, $124 million contract ends after the 2020-21 season. Monday, July 13, 2020, marked an important milestone for both Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals. Per the new NHL CBA, it’s the first official day Ovechkin could sign a new contract extension with the only team he’s ever played for in the NHL.
After the first day of Phase 3 training camp, Ovechkin was asked if he’s had any discussions with general manager Brian MacLellan about a new deal.
His answer was a hard no.
