I guess I'm asking if he needs to fill out his frame to handle the grind of an long, long NHL season??
In that particular hit, yes, more weight would have helped. Ovechkin is a pretty big guy, and he was braced for that. If Ellis catches him off guard I think Ovechkin at least stumbles. Ellis didn't take any time at all to get back up. What I like most is how hard he hustles to get into the break out that he created by forcing that turnover
