What is Ovechkin's nickname?

I always thought it was Ovie, with the emphasis on the "O", but I see a lot of OV's, with the emphasis on the "V".

Not that it's important (And yes, I realize that you Caps fans are watching something important at the moment) but what do you say?

There's a bunch. Some say AO, some say Ovie, some say OV.

I write it out as Ovie, but OV fits better on signs and cut out letters and such to bring to the game. Either way, the message gets across.

During the Olympics in Torino he was called "Mutant" by his Russian teammates. Datsyuk was called "Spider".
