It turns out Alex Ovechkin is a big Theo Fleury fan.

In town for Tuesday’s game against the Calgary Flames, Ovechkin met up with Fleury at the morning skate.

According to Fleury, Ovechkin wears a tinted visor and yellow skate laces because of the Flames’ old number 14.

The Washington Capitals captain proceeded to ask for an autographed stick, Fleury says, which clearly flattered the 51-year-old.
