Team outside the NHL preparing an offer to lure Alex Ovechkin away from North America
Over the years though, Ovechkin has shared his desire to return to Russia and finish his professional hockey career where it began. Ovechkin began his professional career playing for Dynamo Moscow of the KHL. Alex has made it clear that once his NHL career comes to an end, that's where he plans on retiring.
During a recent interview with MatchTV.ru, the General Manager, Anatoly Kharchuk shared that the team is already preparing to sign Ovechkin.
The following quote is translated from Russian:
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.
Ovechkin, who will be 40 when his deal expires played in Dynamo from 2001-2005. He also returned to Dynamo during the 2012 NHL lockup where he scored 40 points in 31 games. It will be very interesting to see how this situation plays out and if Ovechkin will sign another NHL deal or if he'll return home.
WILL ALEX OVECHKIN BREAK GRETZKY'S RECORD?
