96.6% - The percentage of possible games played by Alex Ovechkin in his career. The Caps’ captain will check in with his 1200th career game tomorrow night, with his team having played 1242 games since his NHL debut.

Per Caps Today, only seven other players in NHL history have played in at least 96% of their team’s games at their respective 1200 career game mark - and Ovechkin will be the only one of the five active players with at least 1200 games played to accomplish this feat.
