At 7:45 pm, Alex Ovechkin was awarded his fourth Maurice “Rocket” Richard trophy for leading the league in goals. Instead of getting invited on stage, Ovechkin was interviewed at his seat by new Hockey Night In Canada host George Stroumboulopoulos.
Ovi said he was excited for himself and his team– and his coach… who doesn’t have a job anymore. So. Yeah.
Strombo also asked Ovi about who’s got a bigger trophy shelf– him or Sidney Crosby, who earlier won the Lindsay and will soon win the Hart. Ovi’s answer: “He has one.” Or maybe it was “He’s won.” Not sure.
This whole thing has been painfully awkward.
