Alexander Ovechkin Is First in Line For the Torch

Posted By Damian Arbuckle On September 26, 2013 @ 11:04 AM In NHL | No Comments

The Washington Capitals announced Ovechkin will head to Europe to be the first Russian torchbearer for the Capitals_Alex_Ovechkin_2013 [1]2014 Games in Sochi. The ceremony is set to take place on September 29 in Olympia, Greece. As you might expect, Ovechkin is very excited by the honor.

The date makes things interesting as that’s just two days before the Capitals open the season in Chicago against the Blackhawks. Team owner Ted Leonsis gives Ovechkin full leeway to go and represent his country at the ceremony.
