Has their captain Alexander Ovechkin played his last game for the team, as his contract expires after the 2021 season? The same goes for defender Zdinu Chara. What a scenario for Big Z to end his career against the team he was successful with. At 44, does the giant still have energy in the tank?
These files will be monitored over the next few months / days.
