The NHL Network will air the 60-minute documentary entitled "Alex Ovechkin: The Gr8" on Tuesday night at 6 p.m. ET.

The film looks at the life of the Washington Capitals superstar away from the ice, including a trip to Ovechkin's childhood home in Russia. There is also footage from this past offseason that shows Ovechkin shooting commercials and attending the NHL Awards Show in Las Vegas.

"I think fans know about me as a hockey player, but they don't know about me and my life and how I'm growing up," Ovechkin said. "They know I'm from Moscow, but they never see my school or my home and my family. They're going to see it and I think they're going to enjoy it.

"[Fans] are going to see me and who I am. I always tell what I think and I always tell where I am from, so they are going to see it."

The NHL Network will re-air the documentary Dec. 22 at 6 p.m., Dec. 25 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 27 at 7 p.m.
