Ovechkin received a sweater with a sign "I've done it 5 times"
Washington Capitals forward Alexander Ovechkin has won the Kharlamov Trophy, the award presented to the best NHL Russian hockey player, for the fifth time. On this occasion he was handed a T-shirt with a sign "I've done it 5 times!" (Я сделал это 5 раз!).
"It is very nice to receive this award again, I am especially flattered that I received these votes from my fellow countrymen who play in the NHL," quotes Ovechkin Sportbox.ru correspondent Ekaterina Baleva. "I'll try to receive it for the sixth time. Alas, this season was not very good, the national team lost at the Olympics and at the world championship, and Washington Capitals have failed in the Stanley Cup playtoffs. I think we ran out of luck, it was possible to beat Canadians at the Games. But the season before was a Russian one, and every year is different.
Tatiana Ovechkina, who was also present at the ceremony, said that she hoped that her son would resemble the great Soviet player Valery Kharlamov a bit, in whose honor this award was named.
Ovechkin was asked about Maxime Talbot incident in this video and this is what he said:
There's no need to answer to it. Every person has the right to say something. The ice will show it all.
«Отвечать ничего не надо. Каждый человек может говорить все, что хочет. Лед все покажет»
See you on the ice, Maxipad...
