Gordie Has High Praise For Ovechkin

from Adam Kimelman of NHL.com,

One member of the sold-out Wachovia Center crowd watched Tuesday’s game between the Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals with a bit of extra interest in a certain player.

Gordie Howe, one of the all-time legends of the game, had a prime spot to watch one of the League’s current greats, Alexander Ovechkin.

Howe said that while he hasn’t seen too much of Ovechkin, he’s certainly liked what he’s seen.

“If he got any better he’d be scary,” Howe told NHL.com.

Howe said Ovechkin won him over the first time they met, last season.

“There’s 18 guys sitting down and he’s the only one who jumped up to shake my hand,” Howe said. “He shows respect for the older players.”
