News: Head coach Barry Trotz is "leaning towards" having Ovechkin start the season at his former position of left wing, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports. Impact: Trotz had indicated previously during the summer that he would keep Ovechkin at right wing to start the season, but Prewitt speculates something may have changed over the summer or that Trotz, like his predecessor, plans to move Ovechkin between both wings. The flexibility should help Ovechkin keep his place as one of the league's top goal scorers, and this should do nothing to adversely affect his fantasy appeal.(RotoWire, )

News: Ovechkin says the right knee he injured at the hockey world championship is fine and he's been working out for the past month or so. Impact: The three-time NHL MVP says: "Everything feels fine and 100 percent." He says it took about two months for his knee to heal after he took a hit at the world championship in May. Asked whether he would play left wing or right wing under new Capitals coach Barry Trotz, Ovechkin replied: "Ask him about it. He's the coach and he's going to make the decision."(STATS, 3:39pm)
