The Hardest Working Man in Hockey

One man's trip to Vancouver. First, a stop at a shopping mall...

"A downtown department store in a major Canadian city is bound to be a madhouse during the holiday shopping season. But it is nothing compared to a public appearance by Alexander Ovechkin, the Washington Capitals superstar and the worldwide face of hockey."
And according to Nate Ewell, Capitals Senior Director of Media Relations (retweeting Paul Rovner, Assistant Director of Media Relations (I have trouble keeping all these tweets straight))...

"Ovechkin spent part of his morning signing construction helmets for workers waiting for coffee at Starbucks."

When asked at The Bay at his signing sessions why he would do this, he responded...

"Why not? It's good stuff for me. People are going to recognize me and shake my hand. It's easy."

Oh, and he has a game tonight, too. If he starts kissing babies, he could run for office.

Something tells me the next time he comes back to Vancouver in a couple months they aren't going to give him such a nice ovation...
