For a staggering 14th time in his career, Alex Ovechkin received votes for the Hart Trophy as league MVP
Earlier this year, Alex Ovechkin clinched his ninth career Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy as the league’s top scorer after tying David Pastrnak in goals with 48. Somehow, Ovechkin has bucked the aging curve and remains one of the greatest and most consistent hockey players of all-time.
Ovechkin, who scored four hat tricks and was on pace for 57 goals before the coronavirus pandemic cut the season short, arguably had one of the best five campaigns of his career at age 34.
The Great 8 continues to shatter norms for a player in his mid-thirties and once again garnered consideration for the Hart Trophy as league MVP.
