Alex Ovechkin Reveals His Thoughts on Potential Kuznetsov Trade
BY DAWSON MCKENZIE AUGUST 15, 2023 (11:50)
Kuznetsov had a relatively disappointing season last year, recording only 55 points. That's 23 fewer than the season before, and has put his name squarely on the trading block this offseason.
It was reported that Kuznetsov has actually requested a trade to get out of D.C., as NHL writer Mike Vogel confirmed this July. Kuznetsov has requested a trade in multiple seasons.
Ovi and Kuznetsov are long-time friends, teammates, and countrymen. He had this to say about a potential trade.
With no potential trade partner found yet, time will tell whether Ovi and Kuznetsov will play another season together, and potentially snag another milestone-worthy pic in the process.
