Ovechkin Plans To Go Online

Although several fans have created websites celebrating Alex Ovechkin and his eye-popping highlights, he's never had one of his own.

But that's about to change.

Although my sources won't divulge many details, I'm told the Capitals are working in conjunction with Ovechkin and his agents at Newport Sports Management on a social networking-style website (similar to a MySpace page) for the 21-year-old, who in just over a season has emerged as one of the NHL's most popular players.

The website will include news about Ovechkin, an area for visitors to leave messages and get occasional responses, as well as a journal written by the player. It will also have videos from practice and interviews with the star left wing.

The site is still under construction and won't be launched before December.

I'll keep chasing more details.

On another subject, the Capitals will likely go with the same lineup tonight against the Thrashers, meaning defenseman Steve Eminger will remain a healthy scratch.
