Alex Ovechkin surprises cancer survivor Alex Luey after finding out he’s his favorite player, reduces him to tears
Alex Luey is a youth hockey player for the Niagara Falls Flyers and was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a cancer that lives inside the bone. Alex had part of his right leg amputated, but with the support of his community and a successful surgery, Alex is already back on the ice. With his new prosthetic, he is re-learning how to skate and play the sport he loves dearly.
Sunday on Sportsnet’s Hometown Hockey, Alex Ovechkin, inspired by Tiny Alex’s story, surprised the youngster and gave him a gift that reduced him to tears.
