Saturday night, Alex Ovechkin made his way to Echostage shortly after the Capitals defeated the New York Islanders 2-1 at Verizon Center. Joined at the club by his wife Nastya Ovechkina and Caps forward Tom Wilson, the Russian machine actually went out on stage and dropped the beat for Dzeko and Torres in front of a capacity crowd. The Canadian DJ’s wore Alex Ovechkin and Tom Wilson jerseys during their set.
According to Twitter user @JhaviNation who was at the show, Ovechkin “came out for one song and actually put on headphones. Then he stayed on the stage.”
Nastya captured the moment when Ovi dropped the beat on Instagram.
@JhaviNation also took this video from the crowd.

“Yo, shoutout to f*cking Ovechkin and f*cking Wilson in the building,” one of the DJ’s yells. “MAKE SOME NOISE.”
Dzeko & Torres was the final opening act before Tritonal took the stage. In the past, the duo has collaborated with Tiesto – Ovechkin’s friend and one of his favorite DJs.
Dzeko & Torres are a Canadian production and DJ duo based in Toronto, Canada. Founded around 2008 by teenagers Julian Dzeko and Luis Torres, the duo has released a number of singles in conjunction with labels such as Mixmash Records, Monstercat, and Musical Freedom Records. They released the EP Hey on Dim Mak Records in 2012, and have had airplay on radio stations including Tiesto’s Club Life, Paul Oakenfold’s Planet Perfecto, David Guetta’s radio show Radio DJ Mix, and Steve Aoki’s BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix 2012.
Releasing official remixes for artists as diverse as Chuckie, Imagine Dragons, and Capital Cities, in early 2014 the duo collaborated with Tiesto on a remix for “Anywhere For You” by John Martin, releasing a music video as well. Dzeko & Torres have toured throughout North America and Europe, performing at festivals such as The BPM Festival, Ultra Music Festival, Winter Music Conference, Electric Zoo Festival, Coachella, and Tomorrowland.
Several Caps fans noticed Ovechkin backstage and managed to snag photos with him.
