Alexander Ovechkin's offseason continues to be one for the books.
Just a week removed from celebrating with the Stanley Cup in Moscow, Ovechkin was named Best Male Athlete Wednesday night at the 2018 ESPYs.
The 32-year-old is the first NHL player to win the award since it was first introduced in 1993.
"The Great Eight" beat out Jose Altuve of the Houston Astros, James Harden of the Houston Rockets and Tom Brady of the New England Patriots.
Ovechkin was not in Los Angeles to accept the award.
