Alex Ovechkin once again was named to one of the NHL's All-Decade teams.
This go-around, Ovechkin was named to the first-team for the All-Decade Team spanning 2010-2019.
During those 10 seasons, there was no one that totaled more than Ovi's 437 goals. Only two others had more than his 730 points.
Through our eyes, we saw him mature from a unique superstar to a once-in-a-generation athlete. Ovechkin won his first Stanley Cup in the decade after years of heartbreak and dominant Capitals teams that could never escape the second round.
Now, he's a mere eight goals away from reaching 700 and further etching his name in the fabric of the sport.
He is joined with fellow forward Patrick Kane and Duncan Keith of the Blackhawks. Sidney Crosby of the Penguins, Drew Doughty of the Kings and Marc-Andre Fleury of the Golden Knights rounded out the six-player first team.
