#2 – Alex Ovechkin, Washington Capitals
Alex Ovechkin is one of the most electric goal-scorers the NHL has seen in quite some time, a combination of speed, skill, and raw power that has some thinking of him as a modern-day Gordie Howe. At age 26, he’s already passed the 300-goal mark after just six seasons, and is primed to power the attack in Washington a long, long time. The bottom line here is that not only is Ovechkin an elite performer, he’s also one of the most entertaining players in the game, who wants nothing less than to be the very best in the game. It’s no surprise that his jersey is still one of the hottest-selling in the NHL.
