Puck Daddy: Alex Ovechkin finally gets his Honda, donates it to charity


Alex Ovechkin spent the entire 2015 NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft campaigning Team Foligno and Team Toews to make him the last pick, ensuring that he would win a brand new Honda. Things didn’t go as the Washington Capitals captain had planned and he was selected before the final two of Filip Forsberg and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who both ended up receiving cars.

After the Draft concluded, the real reason why Ovechkin wanted the car was revealed: he had planned to donate it to the American Special Hockey Association, which is the league that 10-year old Ann Schaab plays in, his sushi date from earlier this season.
