Alex Ovechkin has had an incredible career in the NHL and might even become the all-time leading scorer in regular season history, surpassing Wayne Gretzky.

This is quite an achievement, as no one thought it would be possible. The great Alex is only 31 goals away from matching the record and has two years left on his contract.
Barring a catastrophe, he will become the new all-time leading scorer before the end of his contract.
This would obviously be excellent news for him, but in the immediate term, some bad news has emerged. Ovy's professional bank account in his country has reportedly been frozen due to a rather ridiculous debt.
Indeed, $543 would be enough to freeze his account, despite him having earned over $140 million in his career.
"Championat reporting that Alex Ovechkin's business bank account has been frozen due to a debt of 49,000 rubles (~$543 USD) in federal taxes. Not a good time to owe the government money in Russia I presume." - Andrew Zadarnowski

This summarizes the situation well in his home country. Nothing is easy at the moment, and despite his status and wealth, Ovechkin is being blocked for a tiny debt.
Let's hope this gets resolved quickly and that he doesn't face further issues in his country. Rumors suggest he wants to end his career in the KHL, so it would be a shame if he couldn't live out this dream due to a minor hiccup.
