Finally, the Rink Team would like to extend our most heartfelt condolences to Alex Ovechkin and the entire Ovechkin family after the passing of Mikhail Ovechkin.

The loss of Mr. Ovechkin will be felt not only in the locker room, but also in the hockey community. The Capitals will be without Alex Ovechkin for the foreseeable future while he spends time with his family. Our hearts are with the Ovechkin family during this difficult time.
