Washington Capitals center Alex Ovechkin leads the list of NHL stars by followers, but the top dozen players are as notable for those who are absent as those that made the cut. Big-name stars like Sidney Crosby, Patrick Kane, Brad Marchand, John Tavares and Steven Stamkos are nowhere to be found as none have an account on the popular photo-sharing service.
