Alex Ovechkin

Washington Capitals right wing and captain Alex Ovechkin is looking for any sort of way to end the season on a high note. He didn’t do to hot in the Olympisc, nor is he excelling with the Capitals.

Yahoo Sports’ Dmitry Chesnokov reports Ovechkin will join the Russian team on April 20 for the 2014 World Championships in Belarus.

Ovechkin has been pretty steady when playing in his home country and Russia will be looking to rebound from last year’s shocking 8-3 quarterfinal loss to the United States in the Worlds.
