Alex Ovechkin knocks out Andrei Svechnikov in brutal fight
By Ian Oland 0 Comment
Svechnikov, a Russian scoring winger, had said earlier in the series that Ovechkin is someone he looked up to growing up.
Before Caps' captain Alex Ovechkin dropped dropped the mitts prior to Monday's tilt with Hurricanes rookie Andrei Svechnikov, where the Capitals captain knocked out the Hurricanes rookie, it had been nine years since he'd been penalized for a fight. Ovechkin caught Svechnikov with his right fist, sending the back of his head crashing hard into the ice. Svechnikov remained down on the ice after the bout and then had to be helped off to the locker room.
The internet, as always, acted quickly, updating Svechnikov's Wikipedia to read, "He was killed in a fight by Alexander Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals on April 15,2019", though it was quickly changed back to its original form.
It was the first-ever National Hockey League fight for Svechnikov, who was selected second overall by the Hurricanes in 2018. He won't return to the game due to an upper-body injury, according to the Hurricanes' public relations staff. Washington entered the evening up 2-0 in the series. The pair met last spring ahead of the NHL's entry draft and Ovechkin wished the aspiring NHLer luck.
"It's just an honour to have met with him", Svechnikov told the Associated Press at the time.
