Now only the legendary Gordie Howe is shying away from 1-goal. After passing Howe’s all-time record, Alex Ovechkin will only have Wayne Gretzky on his site. While his NHL climb continues, Ovie’s marketing team has been working on a “multilayered marketing and business platform, as per ESPN’s Emily Kaplan.

The RMNB reported that Ovie trademarked ‘The Gr8 Chase’, donned with a sick logo on it. Kaplan wrote, “Ovechkin’s family was heavily involved in the creation of the logo, as well as the trademark name”. 

“‘THE GR8 CHASE’ is a triple entendre, alluding to Ovechkin’s nickname (‘The Great Eight’), Gretzky’s nickname (‘The Great One’) and Ovechkin’s chase of history.”  One of the illustrations points to the sky indicating a personal tribute to his brother who passed away during childhood, Sergei. 

The Great Eight named his first child after his brother, as ESPN stated that his family “was heavily involved” in the creation of the logo. Considering his current pace, Ovie is expected to cross Gretzky’s record by the 2024-25 season. His contract with Capitals runs till the 2025-26 campaign, so practically he’s on the safe side.
