January 30George KurtzSportsGrid
Alexander Ovechkin has cleared COVID-19 protocols and is expected to return to the Capitals and play Saturday versus the Bruins. Ovechkin, along with Evgeny Kuznetsov, Ilya Samsonov, and Dmitry Orlov, were placed on the list, and the team was fined $100,000 for COVID-19 violations. The quartet has missed the past four games for the Capitals. Ovechkin and Orlov have cleared the protocols, but Kuznetsov and Samsonov have yet to do so. The next chance for them to play will be Monday.
Ovechkin, by and definition, is one of the greatest goal scorers in NHL history. He has scored at least 48 goals in six of the last seven seasons and has never met a shot he didn’t like to take. Ovechkin will resume his regular top-line duties for the Capitals on Saturday.
