KHL TEAM SAYS THEY'RE PREPARING FOR RETURN OF ALEXANDER OVECHKIN

MAR 14, 2023  (11H33)      COOPER GODIN
In recent years, Washington Capitals captain and future Hockey Hall of Famer Alexander Ovechkin has said that he wants to end his playing career in Russia with his former club, Dynamo Moscow.

During an interview with MatchTV, Dynamo Moscow general manager Anatoly Kharchuk said that they are preparing for the return of Alexander Ovechkin in 2026 once his NHL contract is over.

Note: the following quote is translated from Russian by DeepL.

"So we're preparing it right now. Dynamo now has that age potential, which will peak at the moment when Sasha's NHL contract expires. I want him to have decent partners at that moment."


The 37-year-old Ovechkin played four seasons for Dynamo Moscow between 2001 and 2005 before heading over to North America to begin his National Hockey League career. During the NHL's lockout in 2012, Ovechkin returned to Dynamo Moscow and performed very well, putting up 40 points in 31 games.
