There's no doubt that Alexander Ovechkin, the captain of the Washington Capitals, will go down in history as arguably the greatest Russian-born player of all time.

Known as "The Great 8", he has been pursuing the lofty goal of breaking Wayne Gretzky's (also known as "The Great One") all-time goal record. However, he has recently taken an unexpected step.
According to sports.ru, Alexander Ovechkin has applied to register a famous saying with Rospatent, Russia's Federal Service for Intellectual Property. In addition, he has also applied to register the logo for his international hockey academy.
It remains unclear whether the application is for a trademark or copyright. If approved, the phrase cannot be used without Ovechkin's consent. He will hold the exclusive rights, which means he could profit from this intellectual property, as the report indicates.
Alexander Ovechkin first used the phrase on October 26, 2006, during a post-practice interview with the media. When asked how he was feeling, the Washington Capitals responded:
"I'm okay. The Russian machine never breaks."

This statement appears to hold true as Ovechkin continues to score like he's 23, setting the NHL ablaze. As the story develops, it will be interesting to see the outcome.
