Ovechkin Back In Town

Alex Ovechkin has returned from Russia and is back in the Washington area, according to a text message I just received from his business manager, Konstantin Selinevich. I don't have any other details, but I imagine that I'll get an update at tomorrow's practice.

Tarik- did AO's grandfather pass away (as has been reported on another website)?

Hopefully Ovie will be skating so we lucky enough to go watch practice on a Monday morning can see him!

And no, I have never accidentally left capslock on, as I don't have to look at my hands while I type..

As always, thanks for the info. Hopefully the trip did him well emotionally and the rest from game action did him well physically.

(On a side note, somebody already snagged Goat as a Post userID. Bummer.)

Better watch it sidehillman the typing nazi might get you for typing in all caps again......and maybe she should be looking at the keyboard when she types....maybe it would correct that horrible grammar she used in the 9:32 post.....

Poor Ovi. I hope he knows what happened Saturday night, otherwise he's going to be really, really confused when he walks into practice today .....

JSchon! We need an update on that checklist.

Welcome Back Ovie!

Im sure he is still focused on family issues, but we are certainly glad to have him here.

I hope Alex knows he has the support and best wishes for he and his family, from Washington area hockey fans!

@phil r

I was practicing my no look typing. It was fun.

General comment about the Caps prospects both for the year & those in the minors. Have patience. We went through a long dry spell & now we are over anxious. Just remember 1974 & anything that happens this year will be great.
