Alex Ovechkin will donate car to girl with Down Syndrome

During Friday's All-Star Fantasy Draft, Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin attempted to be picked last by claiming he needed the new car. 

It turns out that it was for altruistic reasons after all. Once Honda found out that Ovechkin's plan was to donate the car to a 10-year-old girl with Down Syndrome, they contacted the all-star's agent to make it possible.

Many will recall the 29-year-old taking Ann Schaub on a sushi date last year. The car will be donated to the young girl's hockey program, the Nova Cool Cats of Virginia.
