Players Tied with Ovechkin in Goals
Alex Ovechkin is obviously in a bit of a slump, and off to a slower than hoped for start this season. To help illustrate that point, I figured I’d put together a little list of other players who have 7 goals so far this season :
That’s a collection of names that you’d likely find on the waiver wire in your Fantasy Hockey League, and certainly not the type of guys that Alex would normally like to be grouped with. Luckily, he also finds himself tied with some other top tier talents :
But then of course there are these guys who currently have 8 goals :
- Matt Read, RW – PHI
- Matt Cullen, C – MIN
- Radim Vrbata, RW – PHX
- Tomas Fleischmann, LW – FLA
Yeah, OUCH. Alex is currently tied with 24 other players for 36th in the league in Goal Scoring. He is 18th in shots on goal, is tied for 113th in assists and tied for 62nd in pts. Let’s hope he gets things turned around against Phoenix tonight.
