Alex Ovechkin, who will turn 26 this year, is a special player. Indisputable. Full stop.
The Great 8 has won the Calder Memorial Trophy (best NHL rookie), the Art Ross (most points), two Harts (MVP) that beat as one, two Richards (most goals), and three Ted Lindsay Awards (best player voted by peers). He has also been named to seven NHL All-Star teams.
But that doesn’t mean he is a lock to score 50 goals ever again.
