Alexander Ovechkin took a hip check to the knee during action today at the IIHF World Championships which forced him to be carried off the ice. There is no official word on his injury, but the early indication is not good for Washington Capitals fans.
Alex Ovechkin has been taken off in an ambulance. Evaluation still pending, but according to inside info, “it’s pretty bad”. #Caps
