A look at how the Caps' captain's even-strength production has changed under the current coach

Rob Carr

50 - Percent of Alex Ovechkin 's points under Adam Oates that have come at even-strength (Ovechkin has 42 goals and 22 assists at even-strength, 38 goals and 25 assists on the power play and one shorthanded assist during Oates's tenure). By contrast, in his career leading up to Oates's hire, 61.9% of Ovechkin's points came at even-strength.

As a point of reference, 66.9% of the Caps' goals overall under Oates have come at even-strength, which is down slightly from 70.9% during the Ovechkin Era prior to the Oates hire.
