    He wears 32 on Dynamo but 8 Internationally.

    Any clue what he plans on wearing in the NHL, if he's said it or not?

    That's what I'm thinking too but I want to be sure.

    he probably does not have the luxory of picking his own number on dynamo given that it is a much more senior team.. 8 is also more likely to be a number of his preference.. 8 is my guess too..

    I hope it's #8. Added incentive to get rid of Bradley.

    I'd say he'll wear 99 and 66 because he's better than Gretzky and Mario combined! He's "The Next Great Magnificent Super-Duper One!"

    Wow I love these new faces.
    :banana: Ovechkin prefers #8 because his mother won two Olympic Gold medals with it. He can't have it in Dynamo though because it's already taken by a much older player who--I think but I'm not sure--is the Captain. Ovechkin said in an interview that he didn't even ask for the number. So he wears #32 with Dyanmo Moscow and #8 whenever he can. He wore #10 once too on the Senior Nation Team. #8 was taken then too. He definetly prefers #8 though. Said so himself.

    Alexander Troschinsky (30 yr, I'm pretty sure) wore #8 with Dynamo last year. I have no idea if he's the captain, though. Anyone know?

    He won't wear a number at all.
    He'll wear the mathematic symbol for infinity, which is actually an eight on its side.
    Oooooh, coincidence? I don't think so! :amazed:

    That's how I think too, but I'd rather it be #9.

    Or he can flip flop 32 and be 23, now that would be the best, I think. :lol
