Capitals News: Ovechkin Gets The Car He Wanted, Donates It To Charity

Washington Capitals star Alex Ovechkin made headlines during All-Star Weekend for his several attempts to win a free car, and now we know a millionaire would want a free car so badly.

Ovechkin didn't win the car, but Honda send him a car following the All-Star Game on Sunday night after they learned he had been lobbying for it so he could donate it to the Washington Ice Dogs, a local special needs hockey program.

Ovechkin was taken third to last in the NHL All-Star Draft on Friday, one pick away from winning the car, then didn't win MVP for the All-Star Game.

According to, Honda contacted Ovechkin's agent, and once they learned of his intentions, the company decided to give him the car.

Ovechkin became involved with the Ice Dogs through his friendship with Ann Schaub, who is a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome that Ovechkin took on a date in October.
