BREAKING: Capitals Deliver Unfortunate News Regarding Alexander Ovechkin

Published January 13, 2024 at 1:04 PM

It's the type of news Washington Captials fans would not like to wake up with this morning. Alexander Ovechkin will be ruled out of today's game vs the New York Rangers with a lower body injury.

Alexander Ovechkin will not play vs Rangers

Alex Ovechkin has had a rough start to his 2023-24 season, putting up career low numbers all over the board. Whether it's goals or points, the Russian superstar took a huge step back after scoring 40 goals last season. He has 8 goals in 39 games so far, on pace for just 17 goals this season.

Wayne Gretzky to keep the record?

With Alex Ovechkin on pace for only 17 goals this year and now potentially being out of action, he keeps distancing himself from the goalscoring record held by Wayne Gretzky.

Alex Ovechkin is on a decline, but hopefully it's a one season thing and he gets back to finding the net after his injury and the following years moving forward. Time is ticking as the Great 8 is aging fast.
