Connor McMichael did an interview with TSN earlier this week. In it, McMichael talked about his development and his first impressions of meeting Alex Ovechkin in training camp.
“[Ovi] is a lot bigger in person,” McMichael said. “He’s big on TV, but then you see him in person and he’s just a beast. The way he uses his body and everything, he’s just an all-around great player. I was kind of shocked about how thick and how big he was.”
The thick comment seemed ridiculous at the time, yet after doing some very professional research, we’ve learned McMichael’s observation is Completely Correct.
Alex Ovechkin is a thicc boy.
