    So, so weird.

    While the NHL and NHLPA continue to dilly-dally, several NHL players have already started playing hockey elsewhere.

    One of those players is Washington Capitals forward/captain Alex Ovechkin, who signed with his former club, Dynamo Moscow of Russia's Kontinental Hockey League, Wednesday. Thursday, Ovechkin made his KHL debut, picking up an assist in Dynamo Moscow's 7-2 victory over Dinamo Minsk.

    Ovechkin was held goalless despite taking seven shots, but he did deliver a huge open-ice hit.  

    I remember when he used to do that here...I'm sorry, there's something in my eye.

    Anyways, there's something not quite right about seeing Ovechkin wearing a jersey that's not red. I mean, I didn't think Ovechkin would wear blue until the Caps traded him to the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2018 as part of a rebuilding effort, but it's still weird.
