Quite A Collection For Ovechkin

via the Washington Post ( reg. req.),
After the Capitals' loss Friday, Alex Ovechkin sought out Pavel Datsyuk, a fellow Russian and former teammate on Moscow Dynamo. After the two spoke for a few minutes, Ovechkin returned to the Capitals' locker room with Datsyuk's hockey stick, which the Detroit star autographed and wrote "Good Luck" on the blade. Ovechkin said he planned to add it to his collection of hockey memorabilia, which includes 2,000 hockey cards and about a half-dozen sticks from Russian players he admires. He already has autographed sticks from the New York Islanders' Alexei Yashin, the Atlanta Thrashers' Ilya Kovalchuk, the New Jersey Devils' Viktor Kozlov and the Buffalo Sabres' Maxim Afinogenov, among others. Asked why he only has sticks from Russians, Ovechkin smiled and said: "I don't know. I like how we play."
