Date of Birth: 9/17/1985
Rookie Card Year: 2005-06
Investment Rating: 8.0


Overview

Alexander Ovechkin is one of the best players in the NHL. He also represents one of the stronger investment opportunities for hockey fans. Along with Sidney Crosby, Ovechkin's popularity with collectors has been on the rise since he started his professional career with the Washington Capitals in 2005.  His fiercely competitive nature may polarize fans, but there's no denying his drawing power in the hockey world.

As such, Alexander Ovechkin rookie card collectors are among the most loyal in the hobby. The Russian gets a further boost thanks to his international appeal.

Although few will question his abilities, Ovechkin had been unable to transfer it to playoff success. That changed in 2018 as Ovechkin finally won the Stanley Cup.
