Video- They Used To Call Him Alex

via Sportsnet's YouTube page,

In 2005, Alex Ovechkin arrived from Russia as one of the most highly-touted prospects in hockey history. He wasn't a blast from the sport's storied past.  He was the future, and transformed what a hockey player could be. In Episode 1 of the three-part series From Alex to Ovi we discover who Alex was prior to his arrival in North America. This is a closer look at Alex before he would become Ovi and change the face of hockey forever.
