Vyacheslav Fetisov called Alexander Ovechkin’s 1,500 points in the NHL a great achievement
Two-time Olympic champion Vyacheslav Fetisov reacted to Russian Washington Capitals forward Alexander Ovechkin reaching 1,500 points in the regular championships of the National Hockey League (NHL). TASS reports this.
He called the striker handsome. “A great achievement for world sports as a whole. I would like to wish Sasha that he breaks Wayne Gretzky’s main goal record. Not everything is going as we would like, it is clear that there is psychological pressure from all sides, but I am sure that he will achieve this,” Fetisov said.
Ovechkin was the first Russian in the NHL to reach the 1,500-point mark earlier on Friday, December 8. The forward scored his anniversary point in the regular season match against the Dallas Stars. The Russian made an assist, and his team was defeated in a shootout (4:5).
This season, Ovechkin played 23 matches in the NHL regular season. The Russian has five goals and ten assists.
