Alex Ovechkin had to be helped off the ice after suffering a left leg injury during a Capitals’ informal scrimmage on Monday. He returned later and was fine. But it was the injuries he suffered the night before which ended up being more concerning – just for how noticeable they were.
“[Sunday] night, I fell off bike,” Alex Ovechkin said. His face was cut up and bruised. “Shit happens,” he added, downplaying the incident.
Ovechkin had cuts, scrapes, and bruises on his nose, chin, eyebrow, elbow, forearms, and his knuckles on both hands. It looks bad.
