COLUMBUS -- Even though he wasn't named MVP of the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game on Sunday night, Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin finally got his new car. He won't be keeping it for too long.
Ovechkin, who missed out on the car Friday night after lobbying to be picked last in the 2015 NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft Presented by DraftKings, was given the key to a new Honda after the game Sunday.
He is donating the new wheels to the Washington Ice Dogs hockey program.
Ovechkin's connection with the Ice Dogs program includes his friendship with Ann Schaub, a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome who went on a sushi dinner date with Ovechkin in September.
"It means a lot," Ovechkin told NHL.com. "Honda connected with my agent and they just gave me a car, so I'm going to donate to [Ice Dogs] and that sweet little girl."
