ALEX OVECHKIN TAKES BIGGEST HIT OF THE PRESEASON FROM NIC DOWD

SEP 25, 2022  (13H48)      BRENNEN BEAUDIN
The Washington Capitals training camp has been a physically grueling one this season, and it's only their third day back on the ice.

NHL teams split their team into multiple groups, mixing prospects, veterans, and star players. On Saturday the Capitals had Group A participating in a two versus two drill, otherwise known as "Off The Wall." Fan favorite and NHL legend Alex Ovechkin was paired with Evgeny Kuzentsov, and they were matched up against Nic Dowd and Dmitry Orlov.

Dowd was covering Ovechkin, which in theory should be a pretty big mismatch in the physicality department. Ovechkin weighs in at roughly 240 pounds, compared to Dowd at just 190. Dowd found a way to drop Ovechkin though, and it may be the biggest hit of the preseason thus far. Ovechkin was turning back up the ice with the puck and was blindsided by Dowd, who laid the Caps captain out onto the ice. The footage of the event can be seen below.
