The NHL has finally made an 'Alex Ovechkin Day' video available via their web site. June 13, 2008 was a great day for the superstar forward of the Washington Capitals and his fans. Like all the Washington, DC area reporters and several Cap's bloggers, the NHL observed the days events, as Alex and his 2007-2008 season accomplishments were celebrated.

The video shows the awards display at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, VA, including fan reaction. Also featured are the short and humorous speeches by Alex Ovechkin while receiving the 'key to the city' from DC mayor Adrian M. Fenty and at a VIP party also held that day. Among those gathered were former Capitals Rod Languay and Peter Bondra. Bondra, VP and GM George McPhee and team majority owner Ted Leonsis briefly talk about Alex in the 5 min. 35 sec. video. Although it took close to two weeks to be released, it's a fine production.
