The Hockey News’ player of the week for May 4 to May 10, 2009 is Washington Capitals goal-scoring sensation Alex Ovechkin.

After a slow start to the post-season, Ovechkin is proving why he’s locked up his second Richard Trophy and could be the first repeat winner of the Hart since Dominik Hasek in 1997 and 1998.

The 6-foot-2, 212-pound Ovechkin, who logged at least 21 minutes of ice time each night, tallied six goals – including his first ever playoff hat trick – and nine points in four games against the Pittsburgh Penguins last week.
