Ovechkin has phenomenal physical development, said former Russian national team coach

Former head coach of the Russian national team Vladimir Pluschev assessed the Washington captain’s fitness Alexandra Ovechkina .

In the final game of the NHL regular season, Washington defeated New Jersey with a score of 6: 4. Ovechkin, who turned 38 in September, scored a goal in this meeting, into an empty net.

– Sasha will physically give a head start to many people – both young people and people her age. He is truly phenomenally developed physically, which pays big dividends for him on the field. People approach the season in different ways, and the fact that the club hasn’t taken any drastic measures based on how Ovechkin started the season suggests that everyone understands: everything will slowly return to normal. This means that, anyway, the club does not expect personal statistics from him, but waits for the match that will bring results to the team. Since the club is interested in him, and he is interested in the club, he works for Washington, for its image. And the club is able to evaluate what it does on the pitch.

I think he will have a normal season. Not better than last year, but certainly not worse. And he will certainly be able to bring benefits to the club,” Gazeta.Ru quoted Plyushchev as saying.

The goal was Ovechkin’s 824th of his career, he is 70 goals shy of Wayne Gretzky’s sniper record.
