"I don't really think about the contract right now. I just think about my game and what I have to do better and that's it."
"Nobody ever tells me to give them a pass or anything. My job is to score goals, and if I don't shoot the puck, I can't score goals."
"That's hockey. You never know what's going to happen. It's a tough sport. No tooth, a broken nose, but I'm looking good [laughs]."
"Today was a special day," Ovechkin said with a smile. "I broke my nose, have stitches (and) score four goals. Everything (went) to my face."
"I'm okay. Russian machine never breaks." (after being hit on the leg with a shot)
"I saw something white coming at me. I thought, 'Damn, he got me.'" (on the shaving cream incident)
"It was because I didn't score and I had lots of moments. Finally I score goal, and I say, 'Thank you, God!' And we win game."
"I think it's the best moment of my career. I play on a good team in the best league in the world."
"Everybody in my country is jumping and drinking lots of vodka. We did it and we beat a great team." (following Russia's win over Canada at the Olympics)
"I'm having a lot of fun and love the NHL! For all my fans in Russia and in Washington I hope to bring the Stanley Cup home to you soon."
"That was lucky. Best score, oh yeah. I just went down and try shoot and score goal. Clark came to me and said, 'You scored,' and I said, 'Wow.' I saw replay, it was beautiful." (on his 32nd goal)
"If I win the bonus, I'm glad. If I didn't win this bonus, it's okay. I came here for my dream. If I want money, I could stay in Russia and make three million bucks."
"When I see a little boy, I remember when I was little and I used to stand and wait for some guy I would go to after a game. They are fans, and they want my signature. They live in Washington, and they are fans of our team. I think if I signed 10 signatures and there were 20 more fans waiting and I didn't sign for them also, they would want to know why, and I would feel bad. If you have time, why not sign them all?"
"If I'm playing hockey, I want to win all the (trophies) I can."
"For me, it doesn't matter where I play. If coach says I must play goalie, I will play goalie."
"If people compare me to Michael Jordan, I'm glad."
"I want to win the Stanley Cup. I want to be the best, just the best. I must work. I must learn. Help my team. Hockey is my life, you know. If I do not play hockey, I do not know what I do."
"My weapon isn't my shot. It's me."
"I'm going to play as much time as they give me. I'm only 20, and I have a wagon and a carriage full of power." "When I have a chance to shoot, I like to shoot it. I love scoring goals. But I'm trying to help the team win games. If we win and I score, I'm really happy."
"I saw the rebound and when the puck came to me, I said, oh my God, puck, I must shoot."
"Let's wait and see [who will receive more attention] at the end of the season."
