Alex Ovechkin Is Off to His Best Start in His Career

(Caps Outsider)

Through 15 games, 36-year-old Alex Ovechkin is off to the best start of his career in terms of points, rebounding from a relatively slow start last season and putting up numbers that can only suggest he’s still getting better.

With 12 goals in 15 games, Ovi has matched a goal total he’s had four other times in his career, while once, he had 14. He scored at least 50 in each of those seasons, excluding 2018 in which he had 49. Strangely, when he scored 65 goals in 2007-2008, he scored only 9 in the first 15 games.
