Alexander Ovechkin

In town to play the Washington Capitals last weekend, Mathieu had a few thoughts about Alex Ovechkin. He thinks the star could have a long and successful career by being a bit more selective with his big hits:

"It's a grind. When you look at players who have played their careers like (Ovechkin), I look at guys like Wendell Clark, a great goal-scorer who was also a big, physical presence. It took a toll on his body. He's a target out there and a lot of guys go after him. It's only natural for him to want to go back at guys. He's going to keep learning as he goes, but it's better revenge to put the puck in the net than run somebody over." (from The Sporting News)
