Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin is known for his big goals, his even bigger hits, and his penchant for never breaking. That’s why this portrait of the Russian machine from headshot day is such a treasure.
Ovi has this big cuddly smile like he’d rather bear hug you and make you a grilled cheese sandwich than play hockey and break you.
Yeah, that’s great.
I look forward to seeing how Ovi’s official portrait turns out and if it’s as smiley as this one.
