Alex Ovechkin's family was on hand Sunday afternoon as the Washington Capitals' captain was honored for reaching the 1,000-point plateau.

Prior to Sunday's matinee against the Los Angeles Kings, the NHL's Jim Gregory presented Ovechkin with a Tiffany crystal, while team owner Ted Leonsis gave the captain a golden stick.

Fans in attendance were also given cutouts of Ovechkin's face.

Ovechkin reached the milestone with a goal against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Jan. 11. Since hitting the mark, the 31-year-old has been on a tear, picking up four goals and 12 points in 11 games.
