Alex Ovechkin's bank account has been frozen, raising questions

This kind of news is certainly out of the ordinary.
Ovechkin, who has reportedly earned around 140 million dollars over his career according to CapFriendly, along with additional earnings from endorsement deals, now finds himself facing this unusual financial predicament.
"Championat reports that Alex Ovechkin's professional bank account has been frozen due to a 543 US dollar debt in federal taxes.
