Alex Ovechkin answers questions about dream linemates, milk and other fascinating subjects


If you were to construct the ultimate video game scoring line, it might just involve Alex Ovechkin, Mario Lemieux and Wayne Gretzky. Lemieux and Gretzky were Ovechkin’s two choices for dream linemates when prompted by an ESPN reader’s questions as the Washington Capitals superstar did a little Q & A with the network’s resident puckhead John Buccigross.

Apparently Ovechkin was on hand to film a “top secret” commercial for the sports network’s popular “This is Sportscenter” series so he took out some time to shed some light on a variety of subjects with his gradually improving English-speaking abilities. (My all-time favorite commercial is probably the old one with Evander Holyfield and former New York Rangers defenseman Jeff Buekeboom, but the vast majority of those spots are clever-to-hysterical.)

Anyway, if you’re interested in hearing Ovechkin speak about milk preferences, his physical playing style and on, check out the video below and the ESPN article here.
