Athletistic/Hockey. The legendary Russian traveler Fedor Konyukhov, in an interview with Match TV, shared his opinion about the hockey player Alexander Ovechkin.

Ovechkin, who has played for the Washington Capitals since 2005, ranks second on the NHL’s all-time goalscoring list with 853 regular season goals. To surpass Wayne Gretzky’s record of 894, he will need to score 41 more goals.

— Do you think Alexander Ovechkin will be able to overtake Wayne Gretzky? What do you think of Washington’s captain?

– I don’t feel good with him. And I wouldn’t shake Ovechkin’s hand! He performs in America and thinks not about Russia, but about how to make more money. We must play in Russia and glorify our homeland! Of course, Ovechkin will not surpass any Gretzky! I don’t respect him as an athlete.
