I definitely remember reading about AO using non-CCM sticks near the end of his contract with them. I also remember reading about him painting over sticks. And it appears it's just that... he just painted over logos, not had them repainted as another brand.

It's been well documented over the years that Ovechkin wasn't always happy with the sticks CCM has provided for his use. During my time covering the Caps, I recall him occasionally experimenting with sticks from other manufacturers, and sometimes attempting to hide the fact by spray painting over the logo. I am told, though, that he used CCM sticks exclusively from the end of the 2009-10 season through the end of last season.
