TJ Oshie didn’t come close to matching last year’s gaudy goal total, but he became a postseason assassin on the power play to help the Caps win the Cup. (more…)
Welp. Alright. During their face-to-face meeting in Helsinki on Monday, which made absolutely no news outside of the item you’re about to read, American president Donald Trump presented Russian president Vladimir Putin with Alex Ovechkin‘s Washington Capitals jersey.
Alex Ovechkin didn’t just meet famous footballers at the World Cup Final, Sunday.
He also ran into former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor.
TJ Oshie is continuing his partying ways during a celebrity golf tournament.
A day after sinking a putt while wearing a beer-guzzling helmet, Oshie teed off at the American Century Championship while We Are The Champions played.
After successfully driving the ball down the course, Oshie pulled his polo shirt over his head and downed a beer.
TJ Oshie’s living his best life, but so is Alex Ovechkin.
A week after having an entire weekend with the Stanley Cup, Ovechkin was given tickets to the World Cup Final between Croatia and France at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium.
Not only did Ovechkin see France win 4-2 in a high-scoring thriller, he also got to take a photo along with the 18-carat-gold World Cup trophy.
On Sunday, photojournalist Andrew Collins reported that the victim of an early morning drowning at Hamilton Harbor, Ontario was Ray Emery, the former NHL goalie. 35-year-old Emery was swimming with friends at the harbor and never surfaced. The Hamilton Spectator first reported that a man in his early 30s had drowned near the docks at the Royal Hamilton Yacht Club.
Inspector Marty Schulenberg of the Hamilton Police spoke to The Spectator on Sunday morning “They went out for a swim and unfortunately he did not emerge after diving in,” he said. “We responded along with Hamilton Fire and EMS. Unfortunately, our efforts on the water and in the area just around the piers were met with negative results.”
Nathan Walker, the first Australian to ever play in an NHL game, score an NHL goal, and win a Stanley cup, married his longtime girlfriend Tayla Billinghurst on Saturday. Walker’s longtime teammate in Hershey, Chandler Stephenson, was one of the groomsman.
The event was held at the Royal Botanic Garden in Sydney, Australia.
Saturday, Capitals head amateur scout, Steve Bowman, had his day with the Stanley Cup in London, Ontario.
The scout, who is from the hockey-famous Bowman family, is the nephew of Scotty Bowman. After the Caps won their first Stanley Cup championship as a franchise in June, Bowman became the third member of the family to have his name etched on the championship trophy. The Bowmans have won the Stanley Cup 18 different times (Scotty, 14; Stan, 3; and Steve, 1).
Steve celebrated by doing a Cup stand in his backyard.
TJ Oshie’s legend status is officially confirmed.
During his illustrious athletic career, Oshie has beaten the Russians in an Olympic shootout, won a Stanley Cup with the Capitals, and drank a beer through his jersey during a championship parade. Now he’s managed to do the impossible: make golf cool.
Oshie did so with a Happy Gilmore-esque edition to his putting wardrobe. While going for par on the 17th hole of the American Century Championship, Oshie wore a beer-guzzling helmet.
