Alex Ovechkin was joined in Las Vegas for the NHL Awards by a lot of people. And by a lot of people I mean there were so many people in Ovechkin’s entourage that it took several seconds for the camera to pan and capture them all.

There was his brother Mikhail, his girlfriend Nastya Shubskaya, his close friends Abe Hamrah and Gus, marketing genius David Abrutyn, some excited Russian guy with a mullet, and yeah, I have no idea who the rest of the people are.

The only person missing from Ovechkin’s entourage was… Hey, wait a second!

It’s safe to say that Caps goaltending coach Mitch Korn is a genius. In 24 seasons in the NHL, he’s helped Dominik Hasek win four Vezina and two Hart trophies. He’s also led many of the goalies he’s coached, including Braden Holtby, to career years.

Last week, twitter user @GabzNasty posted video of Korn instructing his tiny goalies while standing in the crease. In this lecture, Korn explains why you shouldn’t put all your weight on your heels.
