Concerns rise for the Washington Capitals following superstar captain Alex Ovechkin's latest comments during an interview.

Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin is only 41 goals away from tying Wayne Gretzky's all-time record. Since being drafted first overall in 2004, Ovechkin has become one of the greatest goal-scorers in NHL history. Now, he's focused on breaking the all-time goals record.
In a recent interview with Sports.ru, Ovechkin shared how much he dislikes the off-season training in hockey.
"I hate prep. I hate it. I just don't like training. Before the season, that's the hardest part. Can you imagine, after vacation, you arrive, you're tan, everything's fine, happy, and your coach calls you and says, 'Well Sasha, tomorrow we start training.' And it starts, you go to training, then rest, then another training. I hate it, I can't stand it." - Alex Ovechkin

Getting back into shape after the offseason is one of the more grueling parts of the game. It's essential, though, because starting the season out of shape can lead to injuries or demotions.
With three years left on his NHL contract, Ovechkin will have to endure a few more of these tough training periods. By the time he's done, he hopes to be the all-time NHL goals leader.
