Hockey Website Takes a Stand Against Ovechkin
MoneyPuck, a widely popular website known for its comprehensive hockey statistics, has a history of addressing social issues by publicly criticizing players who refuse to wear pride jerseys, transforming their names into rainbow colors on the site.
Recently, fans noticed that MoneyPuck has targeted Ovechkin. His name now appears as "Alex 'I Support Putin' Ovechkin" on the website. When users click on his name, they are redirected to an article discussing the Russian player's close ties to Putin and a page for Ukraine relief donations.
The alteration on MoneyPuck's website clearly demonstrates its disapproval of Ovechkin's political affiliations and the league's ongoing support for the player.
