AO Stands Out

from Jody Vance at Slam,

Prior to being swarmed by the media throng Tuesday, my Leafs TV gig afforded me an exclusive one-on-one with Alex Ovechkin.
This was certainly an interview I won’t soon forget.
Ovechkin is a presence even in an empty NHL visitors’ dressing room: Young, yet with eyes filled with the wisdom that comes from having shouldered so much pressure in his 21 years.
We go right to the flashy yellow laces and tell-tale tinted visor on his No. 8 helmet resting on the shelf above. Fashion statements, he says, “Laces to not be like others—same with visor—I do not want to be same as everyone. To stand out.”
