Alex Ovechkin was on the ice this morning for about four minuntes in a track suit, gloves and skates. He had a stick with him and whacked at a couple of pucks, but it was a very light skate.

At first, Ovechkin was skating without using his right leg to push off at all, then he took small strides with both legs. Eventually, he was moving his feet close together and far apart to stretch his legs out and finally he bent his right knee a few times before leaving the ice.


More later when there is an update.
