NHL Star Alex Ovechkin Pulls a ‘Patrick Reed’ After Hitting His Tee Shot

Alex Ovechkin is one of the best hockey players in the world. As a power forward for the Washington Capitals, Ovechkin has won six Rocket Richard awards, which goes to the NHL’s leading goal scorer.

Although many professional hockey players excel on the golf course, such as DJ’s father-in-law, Ovechkin is clearly not one of them.

Or more likely, he hasn’t played all that much (if at all). Check out Ovechkin’s swing.

Pro Tip: Wait until he finally connects, and watch his Patrick Reed-like reaction. He’s been either watching some of the Ryder Cup or he’s getting amped up for the NHL season.

Ovechkin is known for being a hot dog after he scores. Check out this crazy celebration where he pretends his stick is ‘too hot’ to pick up.
