On Saturday night in St. Louis, Alex Ovechkin recorded a hat trick to become just the third player in NHL history to score at least 50 goals in a season seven times. On Sunday, Ovechkin rested.

The Capitals captain was among several healthy scratches for Washington’s meaningless regular season finale, a 2-0 loss to Anaheim at Verizon Center. Ovechkin joined owner Ted Leonsis and fellow scratches Brooks Orpik and Nicklas Backstrom on the ice for a pregame ceremony honoring Justin Williams for his 1,000th career game.

After the first period, Ovechkin roamed the press box before heading downstairs and doling out high-fives to fans on the main level concourse. At least a few fans didn’t notice one of the greatest goal scorers in NHL history strolling by because they were transfixed by the man dressed as Captain Obvious.

As Russian Machine Never Breaks notes, Sunday wasn’t the first time that Ovechkin spent time among the people on the Verizon Center concourse. While attending a Wizards game with Evgeny Kuznetsov last season, Ovechkin made a mid-game ice cream run and posed for selfies with fans. What a guy.
