Ovechkin compared himself to the Hulk

Striker “Washington” Alexander Ovechkin talked about star fever as a child, and also compared himself with the Hulk – a character in Marvel comics.

– Have you had star fever?

– Most likely, I had it at the age of 16. I was then involved in the games of the team of masters. And when I returned from the first Dynamo to Dynamo-2, I behaved like a person who plays with the team, a star player. My parents followed me and noticed it. They gave it a stick. And that's how this star fever ended. I understood that there was nothing good in this, – said the hockey player in an interview with his wife Anastasia Shubskaya for Match TV.

– After what did your figure appear in Madame Tussauds in Washington?

– It happened in 2009 or 2010. I won a lot of individual prizes back then. Then they took a cast of my hands, legs … All this lasted 40 minutes. I still had a fingal on my face. And so they did everything right with a black eye.

– With which superhero would you compare yourself and why?

Hulk, because he is strong, big.

The Russian has been playing for Washington since 2005 and won the Stanley Cup with him in the 2017/18 season.
