HomeHockeyKovalchuk was named “Washington” “nest Ovechkin”
Forward of “Washington” Ilya Kovalchuk shared his thoughts on the team captain Alexander Ovechkin.
“He steers not only the team, but in the entire League. “Washington” is just his nest. Ovi — well done, not only to someone something to prove every year, but adds. Getting wiser, plays great. A lot of plows on the team, and still scored 50 goals for the season.
Partners help him — Backstrom, Oshi, Kuzya, Wilson. There are people to play with. But as they say, cast not cut.
Can the trio of Ovechkin — Kuznetsov — Ilya Kovalchuk? We spent so few matches, the coach was allowed. He often did so that we played together and we have something worked out. We have fun, and if continued season, and was the games, even the playoffs, it would be interesting to play in this combination.
Kuzya is one of the strongest center forward in the League and a great guy. Well, Ovechkin needs no introduction” — quoted Kovalchuk official NHL website.
