Max Talbot: Alex Ovechkin 'Is A Real Douche'

There's nothing like hockey news in July. On 105.9 The X, Pittsburgh Penguins winger Max Talbot expressed his honest opinions on rival and NHL star Alex Ovechkin.

"I just hate the guy," Talbot said. The hosts asked him when he first realized that he felt that way about the two-time MVP winner.

Talbot said he started to feel that way at the NHL awards last summer when teammate Evgeni Malkin introduced him to Ovechkin.

"Malkin knew Ovechkin and introduced me to him and the first impression wasn't great," said Talbot. "I'm not really gonna say what happened, but I'm like, 'Ok, this guy is a real douche.'"
