Well, the Washington Capitals captain added that dubious item on Monday night after dropping the gloves with Hurricanes rookie Andrei Svechnikov in the first period of Game 3 in Carolina.
Ovechkin's Washington Capitals now lead their first round playoff series with the Carolina Hurricanes 2-0. Svechnikov, a Russian scoring winger, had said earlier in the series that Ovechkin is someone he looked up to growing up.
Ovechkin sent Svechnikov to the ice with a heavy right hand, and the 19-year-old needed assistance to get to Carolina's locker room.

Sam Amick of The Athletic was the first to report the deal, and NBC Sports California confirmed the details with a league source. He is the 10th coach since Rick Adelman left the post after eight years at the helm following the 2005-06 season.
The Carolina Hurricanes' Andrei Svechnikov just learned that the hard way. According to Hockey Fights, the 33-year-old hasn't had a bout since December 12, 2010, when he fought Brandon Dubinsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets.
The Hurricanes won Monday's game 5-0. The No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 National Hockey League draft has played in every game for the Hurricanes this season, scoring 20 goals and 17 assists.
Back in 2010, Ovechkin fought Rangers forward Brandon Dubinsky in a December 12 game against the Rangers. Washington entered the evening up 2-0 in the series.
