"Ovechkin, who missed out on the car Friday night after lobbying to be picked last in the 2015 NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft Presented by DraftKings, was given the key to a new Honda after the game Sunday.
He is donating the new wheels to Nova Cool Cats Special Hockey Inc., which is based in Northern Virginia.
Ovechkin’s connection with the Cool Cats program includes his friendship with Ann Schaub, a 10-year-old girl with Down Syndrome who went on a sushi dinner date with Ovechkin in September.
"It means a lot," Ovechkin told NHL.com. "Honda connected with my agent and they just gave me a car, so I’m going to donate to Cool Cats and that sweet little girl."
Ovechkin’s quiet plan all along was to win the car Friday so he could donate it to Cool Cats. He told nobody and was going to announce it if he was indeed one of the last two picks in the draft. He was picked third to last in the draft.”
