NHL rookie of the year aces par-3 at Caps charity golf event

The Washington Capitals star, who won the Calder Trophy last year as the NHL's rookie of the year, aced the par-3, 160-yard fourth hole at the Springfield Golf and Country Club during Monday's Caps Care Classic charity tournament.

Ovechkin had several chances at the hole as he greeted groups all day long at No. 4 and played a shot with them. But given his lack of golf experience, it was surprising to see the 21-year-old Russian record the hole-in-one.

Ovechkin isn't afraid to try out different sports. Last Wednesday he also threw out the first pitch and took batting practice before a Washington Nationals baseball game.
