The Hockey News

The Hockey News

Every year, The Hockey News features its 100 People of Power and Influence issue and as part of this year’s coverage, we ventured to Washington to spend some quality time with No. 2 on our list, Washington Capitals superstar Alex Ovechkin.

Ovechkin had a photo shoot with the New York Times in the afternoon and took in the Washington Wizards game that night and allowed us to tag along.

We also had a chance to catch up with Ovechkin and talk to him about a variety of subjects.

Thanks goes to the Capitals hard-working senior director of media relations, Nate Ewell, who helped make it happen.

Look for the issue on newsstands Dec. 21.
