Alex Ovechkin RW WAS 1 Month

Ovechkin handed out a pair of assists in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Flames, untying himself with Peter Bondra for the title of all-team leading scorer for the Capitals.

Ovi now has 827 points to show for his career -- all with Washington -- and he's done it in just 691 games. For comparison, Bondra needed 961 games to collect his 825 points as a Capital. Ovechkin's racked up seven points in the last three games, but has actually been in a bit of a goal-scoring drought lately, as he's found the net just a single time in his last seven contests despite firing 27 shots on goal in that span.

Ovechkin factored in on four of the team's five goals in Sunday's loss to the Coyotes, finding the back of the net once and assisting on three others.

After going a career-high five consecutive games without a point, Ovechkin has gotten back on the board in his last two and broke out in a big way on Sunday. He added two points on the power play, and ripped off seven shots in the loss, giving him 20 shots on goal in the last three games. The points will continue to come.

Ovechkin scored his first point -- an assist -- in five games in Saturday's loss to Tampa Bay.

Seriously -- he's just fine, but some owners are panicking after the longest point drought in his NHL career. We're not. Use him well.

Ovechkin was held without a point for the fifth straight game in Wednesday's loss to the Red Wings.

It's the longest stretch that Ovechkin has gone pointless in his 10-year NHL career. Before busting out for seven shots on goal against the Red Wings, Ovechkin had combined for seven attempts total over his previous four games. He's too talented for his offense to remain dormant much longer, so the best course of action for fantasy owners is to maintain patience.

Ovechkin had two goals, an assist, and eight shots in Washington's 6-5 shootout loss to San Jose.

The reigning Richard Trophy winner is picking up where he left off with four goals in his first three games to start the season. Tied for third in the league in goals and fourth in the league for shots, Ovechkin is a multi-category monster that looks to be in line for another great fantasy season.

Ovechkin scored his first two goals of the season in Saturday's 4-0 win over Boston.

The first came on a patented Ovie one-timer from the left circle while on the power play; the second was a blistering snipe off a nice feed from Nicklas Backstrom. He also laid three hits and fired seven shots. He delivers a classic goals/hits/shots trifecta every season and this one should be no different.

Though he didn't tally a goal or assist in Thursday's season-opening loss to the Canadiens, Ovechkin turned in an active outing. He supplied four shots on goal and six hits in the shootout defeat.

The Capitals will look to turn Ovechkin into more of a two-way threat under defensive-minded coach Barry Trotz, but the 29-year-old's goal-scoring ability is what will always drive his fantasy value. He didn't notice much of a dropoff in his scoring during the preseason, and it should be just a matter of time before he stats delivering point-per-game production.

Ovechkin scored two power-play goals during the Capitals' 5-4 win over the Bruins on Friday.

There have been whispers that Ovechkin's goal-scoring may regress a bit under new coach Barry Trotz, and although his even-strength production may take a slight decline, he's shown in preseason action that he's still the NHL's most lethal goal scoring threat on the man advantage. Draft Ovechkin with confidence in all formats, especially if he gets dual-position eligibility since he's back to his old stomping grounds on the LW.

Head coach Barry Trotz is "leaning towards" having Ovechkin start the season at his former position of LW, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.

Trotz had indicated previously during the summer that he would keep Ovechkin at RW to start the season off, but Prewitt speculates that something may have changed over the summer or that Trotz, like his predecessor, plans to move Ovechkin between both wings. The flexibility should help Ovechkin keep his place as one of the league's top goal scorers, and this should do nothing to adversely affect his fantasy appeal.

Ovechkin was involved in a minor car accident in Russia on Monday, Russian Machine Never Breaks reports.

It was a minor incident, so no worries -- Ovi didn't aggravate his knee injury or suffer any new ones. The NHL's reigning goal-scoring king is healthy and seems ready to defend his title under new head coach Barry Trotz.
