It what has to be one of the strangest crossovers ever, Washington Capitals’ winger Alexander “Ovi” Ovechkin is ready to take up a new role as a World of Warships commander. “The Great Eight” is a current Stanley Cup winner and three-time league MVP who will be available with the upcoming update, scheduled to be released later this month.
“I wanted people to understand that in any competitive field, you must inspire players to never give up," said Ovechkin. “Video games are just like sport—play more, train more. When I started the game for the first time, I realized I am not a very good ship commander…. But, like on the ice, I will continue to play and build my game skills until I am the best!”
