Meet Alex Ovechkin, the NHL’s greatest goal-scorer of the 21st century!
When Alex Ovechkin was little, his parents thought he’d be an athlete . . . just not a hockey player. After all, he couldn’t even skate until he was seven. But the young Russian quickly surpassed his teammates, developing what is arguably the best one-timer in the game. His NHL career is legendary. Alex has been the NHL’s leading scorer nine times — more than any player in history — and led his Washington Capitals to their first Stanley Cup victory in 2018. But he’s not done yet — there’s more in store for “the Great Eight!”
This full-colour, easy-to-read biography is packed with photos and has 16 pages of hockey action comic sequences. It’s sure to be a favourite read with his legions of young fans!
