Capitals Betting, Odds and Stats

Washington Capitals

As Alexander Ovechkin continues to chase down Wayne Gretzky’s goals record, why not grab your own piece of the action? There are few things that can make hockey more exciting, but when you have money on the line it can certainly add an extra element to the game. Few players have captured the imagination like Ovechkin and his goalscoring exploits over the past two decades, so the rise of NHL player prop betting in recent years has coincided nicely with his efforts to catch Gretzky’s previously untouchable career tally of 894 goals. ...more less

Washington Capitals History

It’s hard to think of the Washington Capitals these days and not think of Alex Ovechkin. The two are so intertwined that it seems hard to imagine one existing without the other. It was Ovechkin, or Ovi as he’s known, who delivered Washington their first ever Stanley Cup, in 2018. It was a case of lucky number thirteen for Ovi, who finally delivered the ultimate prize for his adoring fans, in his 13th attempt to do so. 

Perhaps the greatest goalscorer that the league has ever seen, Ovechkin lost out on his first season through the 2004-05 lockout, then another half-season in 2012-13 for the same reason, and then played through two Covid-shortened seasons later in his career. Had he been a little less unfortunate with his timing, it is likely that there would have been no argument at all over whether or not he is the greatest scorer of all time. Ovi has led the league in scoring on nine separate occasions, which is a league record, and has scored 50 goals in nine different seasons also.

Must be 21+ to participate. T&Cs apply.

There is, of course, a team of players around him who do their jobs too. Among the other notable Capitals over the Ovechkin era are John Carlson and Nicklas Backstrom, with that trio populating the top three in assists, in Capitals franchise history. That history dates back a half a century, to the expansion of the NHL for the 1974-75 season. Although the 2018 Stanley Cup win is the only one in the team’s history, they have won three Presidents’ Trophies, along with 13 divisional titles, including 12 this century. 

With Ovechkin hunting down the Wayne Gretzky goals record, there are still plenty of reasons to watch the Capitals today.
