Spoiler Alert: Place Your Bets, Ovechkin Wins! NHL Shop Gives Away Winner!

Adam WrightSenior Analyst IJune 7, 2008

Ladies and Gentlemen, it looks Washington Capitals’ Alexander Ovechkin has won this season’s Hart Trophy!

Well, that’s at least what I saw when I ordered my t-shirt off of www.nhl.com Friday. I was so pumped; I thought “Hey look, the NHL is saving me the trouble from watching the long and boring NHL Awards Ceremony.” Thank you guys!

After I did my order, NHL’s online shop quickly took down the advertisement for the T-Shirt featuring our Hart Trophy Champ. I guess they figured out people will actually pay attention to NHL’s official website.

The Russian superstar recorded 112 points, including 65 goals this past season. So it’s no wonder the NHL would name him as the winner before the official ceremony... right?

I would like to thank the NHL! Now I can make money out of this. I mean, I know the winner of the Hart Trophy, so now I can go to Vegas and put all my savings on Alexander The Great! I’ll make a fortune!  

And they say Gary Bettman doesn’t appreciate his fans! Thanks Gary, you are the Yoda to my Luke Skywalker.
