Ovechkin agreed to a multi-
year contract extension
Thursday         with       the
Washington Capitals, working
out the details himself in
negotiations with owner Ted
Leonsis and general manager
George McPhee.
   The Capitals scheduled a
press conference for 8:30 p.m.
to officially announce the
deal. Terms of the contract
were not disclosed.
   The 22-year-old Russian
star was in the final season of
a three-year, entry-level deal.
His salary-cap number for this
season, taking into account
bonuses, is $3.83 million.
   If he had become a free
agent at the end of the season,
the Capitals would have had
the right to match any offer
from another team. Leonsis
long maintained he intended
to make sure Ovechkin
remained with the Capitals.
   Ovechkin has led the
Capitals in scoring in each of
his seasons. He entered
Thursday tied for second in
the NHL with 32 goals, help-
ing Washington surge from
the league’s worst record to
the fringe of playoff race. He
also had 20 assists.
   The wing had 52 goals and
54 assists in 2005-06, when he
edged Pittsburgh forward
