Alexander Ovechkin likes to dish out the punishment on opposing players. Sometimes he also likes to dish out the punishment on an innocent pane of glass.
During a KHL matchup on Saturday, Ovechkin laid the hammer down on Atlant Moscow forward Alexei Mikhnov near the boards and continued his reign of destruction as he backed into a pane of glass, shattering it upon impact.
Ovechkin has dominated in the 11 KHL games he has played this season, netting four goals, dishing seven assists and averaging a point per contest. With his display of pure power on Saturday, Oveckin is making a statement that no one is safe from his wrath, not even the actual rink itself.
Ovechkin has even expressed a desire to stay in the KHL if it means making less money after the NHL lockout.
"If contracts get slashed, most players won't return," the Washington Capitals' forward said according to Slava Malamud of Russia's Sports-Express.
