The worst-case scenario for the Washington Capitals would surely involve Alexander Ovechkin getting hurt before the 2019-20 season even started.

So when Ovechkin went down with an apparent leg injury at a team scrimmage, according to Tom Gulitti of NHL.com, Capitals fans were forced to live through a nightmare.

But as we learned, Ovechkin doesn’t get injuries, he laughs at them.

After immediately stating that his leg was fine, Ovi explained that he fell off his bike Sunday night, and that’s why there is a cut on the bridge of his nose.

You have to applaud No. 8’s durability. For someone who has played 14 years in the NHL, he has yet to miss more than 10 games in a single season. That’s pretty incredible.

Ovechkin, though, may want to take it easy on these bike rides to prevent scuffing up his face further.
