Add another accolade to Alex Ovechkin's star-studded resume.

The Capitals captain was recently named the second-most successful Russian athlete by Forbes Russia, one spot behind undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, who submitted Conor McGregor in October to capture the organization's 155-pound title.

Forbes Russia also ranked Ovechkin third in its 40 under 40 Russian stars rankings, again behind Nurmagomedov who took first overall, and television star Olga Buzova.

Per Forbes, Ovechkin is the most commercially successful hockey player, netting $14.5 million in revenue thanks to endorsements with Papa Johns, Nike, Beats and CCM.

Ovi is in the penultimate year of his 13-year, $124 million deal, and will be 35 by the time the deal expires. It's more than likely Ovechkin will continue to make the 40 under 40 list.
