Alex Ovechkin became the all-time leading scorer among Russian-born players in the NHL last week, but this week he received an even greater honor, a giant bobblehead of himself.

The Capitals star was spotted leaving team facilities on Monday with the spring-necked likeness of himself, leading to some great photos.
