After Caps practice concluded on Monday morning, Alexander Ovechkin remained in his skates to welcome another Alexander onto the ice. The other Alexander, who turned five years old on Monday, had his birthday wish granted: to skate with the Russian machine at Kettler Capitals Iceplex.
Sportsnet’s Gene Principe captured a precious photo.

In the locker room, the media asked Ovechkin if that was his new linemate for Edmonton.
“Yeah,” smiled Ovechkin. “It was just my friend’s son. He asked me to skate with him after practice. It’s always fun.”
