Alex Ovechkin To Make 'Special Announcement' September 6

Per a press release from the Washington Capitals, Alex Ovechkin will make a "special announcement" during his first media availability session Tuesday, September 6, at 2 p.m. at Kettler Capitals Iceplex. Let the speculation commence.

Theories have already begun to run rampant (present company included) about what the announcement could be. Perhaps Ovechkin is relinquishing the captaincy or announcing a new sponsorship deal. It also could be neither of these things, but that hasn't stopped us from having a little fun with it.
