What happened in Alex Ovechkin's last fight almost 9 years ago

What happened in Alex Ovechkin's last fight almost 9 years ago

What did you think of Ovechkin's crushing knockout of Andrei Svechnikov?

Svechnikov, the Hurricanes' 2nd-overall selection in the 2018 entry draft, fought fellow Russian Alex Ovechkin in the first period of Monday's Game 3 in Carolina - and took the worst of it.

The two had been pushing and shoving before dropping the gloves during Game 3 of the first-round matchup, which the defending champ Washington led 2-0 as the series shifted to Carolina. Svechnikov remained down on the ice after the bout and then had to be helped off to the locker room.

Back in 2010, Ovechkin fought Rangers forward Brandon Dubinsky in a December 12 game against the Rangers.

It was the first-ever National Hockey League fight for Svechnikov, who was selected second overall by the Hurricanes in 2018.

It was Ovechkin's first fight since December 12, 2010 when he got involved with Brandon Dubinsky.

Carolina said Svechnikov would miss the rest of the game with an upper-body injury.

Svechnikov had an assist in his post-season debut on Thursday and followed that up with a two-goal performance in Saturday's loss in Washington. Washington has a 2-0 series lead.
