The Good News Keeps Coming (At Least On The Ovechkin Front)

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Alex Ovechkin's great week continued today with news that a judge has dismissed the lawsuit brought by Moscow Dynamo that would have ostensibly forced the phenom to be returned to the Russian League team by enforcing an arbitrator's ruling that Dynamo still owned his rights. Hopefully this news will break him out of the horrendous slump he's been in lately.

AO's positive press keeps rolling along as well, with an online chat at (transcript here) and articles in major Canadian media outlets entitled "Ovechkin Pulling Away In Rookie Race" and "Ovechkin, Crosby Story A Tale Of Two Cities" (subscription required, but the text is reprinted here. Shhh.).
