Edmonton wins everything, don’t they?
First they get Connor McDavid – and now they’re going to get the $1.5 BILLION Powerball?
The Columbus Blue Jackets certainly seem to think so from their tweet.
(The Oilers also scored #1 draft picks Nail Yakupov, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Taylor Hall.)
But – there is one person who wants to steal it from the Oilers. Washinton Capitals captain Alexander Ovechkin was caught buying Powerball tickets.
He has a $124 million contract.
“I’m going to buy some. … Maybe one, maybe two,” Ovechkin said after practice Tuesday. “But there’s no chance you’re going to win. But if I win I’ll let you guys know.”
The draw for $1.5 billion takes place Wednesday night.
