When Alex Ovechkin broke into the NHL, he did so with a patented tinted visor. The visor became very popular with fans and young players who loved the look of the tint. This weekend at the All Star Game, Ovechkin revealed which Hall of Fame goalie was an integral part of getting the visor banned.

The league eventually opted to ban tinted visors on 2006 and now we know why. When asked about the situation Ovechkin gave the following answer.

Martin Brodeur start crying to the league, 'I can't his eyes.' What are our you talking about?




Ovechkin also shared he'd love to see the visors brought back, but even without the tint Ovi has gone on to a legendary career. It's odd that Brodeur was worried about seeing Ovechkin's eyes, when you know he's standing at the right circle.

It's also not surprising that of all the Hall of Fame goaltenders in the league that it was Brodeur who was the one crying.
