Capitals re-sign Alex Ovechkin to $47.5M, 5-year contract

Alex Ovechkin broke the news that he's staying with the Washington Capitals in true Ovi fashion with five exclamation points.

Five more years and a chance to chase Wayne Gretzky's NHL goal-scoring record.

Ovechkin re-signed Tuesday with the only NHL team he has ever played for, inking a $47.5 million, five-year deal. The superstar Russian winger who captained the Capitals to their only Stanley Cup championship in franchise history is now under contract through the 2025-26 season.
