A number one overall draft pick, Ovechkin immediately captured the hearts of Capitals fans during the 2005-2006 season and secured the Calder Memorial Trophy (rookie of the year).
During the 2007-2008 NHL season, The Russian Machine, as he's also known, became the first player to win all four outstanding player awards in one season: the Rocket Richard Trophy (leading goal scorer), the Art Ross Trophy (league points leader), the Ted Lindsay Award (most outstanding player), and the Hart Memorial Trophy (league MVP).
Ovechkin followed up his historic 2008 season by again capturing the Ted Lindsay Award, the Rocket Richard Trophy, and the Hart Memorial Trophy, securing back-to-back league MVP seasons.
The end of the 2010 NHL season saw "Ovi" winning his third straight Ted Lindsay Award for most outstanding player, and also saw him voted to the First All-Star Team for the fifth consecutive season.
The Washington Capitals superstar will one day undoubtedly walk the halls of the NHL Hall of Fame, but before that time, he stands among the extraordinary and elite athletes who are forever immortalized in wax at Madame Tussauds Washington DC.
