The captain of the Washington Capitals NHL club Alexander Ovechkin demanded a salary under a new $ 12.5 contract million per season before the pandemic, TSN reports, citing journalist Frank Seravalli.
“Before the pandemic, Ovechkin asked for $ 12.5 million a year. Let’s see how things turn out in the end for the greatest scorer of his generation,” Seravalli quoted TSN as saying.
The 35-year-old Ovechkin has been playing for Washington since 2005. Ovechkin’s current contract ends after the 2020/21 season.
