Alex Ovechkin Named NHL’s “First Star” of the Week

October 9, 2017
ARLINGTON, Va. – Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin has been named the NHL’s “First Star” for the week ending Oct. 8, the NHL announced today.

Ovechkin led the League in goals and points (7-0-0) as the Capitals opened the season with two victories. On Oct. 5, Ovechkin notched his 18 th career hat trick in a 5-4 shootout victory over the Ottawa Senators. Two nights later he matched a career high by scoring four times in a 6-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens. With hat tricks in each of the Capitals’ first two games, Ovechkin became the fourth player in NHL history and first since 1917-18 to record hat tricks in each of his team’s first two games of a season. His seven goals give the Moscow, Russia, native 565 for his career, good for 22 nd on the all-time list of NHL regular-season goal scorers.
