Alexander Ovechkin, captain of the Washington Capitals ice hockey team and a Hublot Friend of the Brand, scored his 700th career goal in February. To mark this milestone achievement, the Capitals presented “Ovi” with a unique Hublot Big Bang Unico Titanium.

Alexander’s extraordinary, highly anticipated achievement makes him one of only eight players in the history of the National Hockey League (NHL) to reach 700 career goals. No other athlete currently playing in the NHL comes anywhere near his scoring record. Commentators calculate it could be decades before another player reaches the 700 goals mark.

The one-of-a-kind Hublot Big Bang UNICO Titanium design was presented to Alexander during a special ceremony. The 45mm watch is decorated in the red, white and blue of the Capitals and of Alexander’s home country Russia. The dial features personalized elements important to Alexander in place of the usual numerals at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock. This incredible moment reaffirms Alexander’s status as one of the all-time greats of the game and a global sporting icon. Also known as ‘The Great Eight’ because of his jersey number, the 34-year-old Russian is one of the most decorated players in NHL history. In 2018 he led the Capitals to their first ever Stanley Cup win.
