Ovechkin Named Offensive Player of the Week

Alexander Ovechkin today was named NHL Offensive Player of the Week. Fellow rookie Henrik Lundqvist was named Defensive PoW, and it is now unofficially down to these two for Rookie of the Month for January. Unfortunately for Alex, I think the powers that be will be less-inclined to give him the award for the second-straight month when there is a deserving player in Lundqvist who has not yet won the accolade, but we shall see in just over a week.
