Alex Ovechkin was out of the lineup the last two games with a right shoulder injury. He’s expected to return tomorrow against the Islanders. Also, he has a mustache now, as seen above.
The Caps captain tweeted today that he’s participating in Movember, the monthlong mustache-growing charity that helps raise money for prostate and testicular cancer, along with other men’s health issues. Here’s his page, which appropriately lists his motivation as “TO CHANGE THE FACE OF MEN’S HEALTH : )))))”

Some of Ovechkin’s teammates are also participating in Movember. That group includes Troy Brouwer, whose ‘stache has been immortalized in bobblehead form for a giveaway tomorrow at Verizon Center.
