Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin has earned some serious hardware over the course of the 2017-18 season. The Prince of Wales trophy, Conn Smythe, Stanley Cup and, as of Wednesday night, his seventh Rocket Richard trophy.
Ovechkin’s wife, Nastya, posted a cartoon to her Instagram stories, depicting the very real issue that they have with Ovi’s latest award: they’re running out of space in their bed.
“Sasha, enough! Take this one straight to the garage,” the text says, as translated by Twitter user @fourforjumbo. Nastya added three cry-laughing emojis, so it’s likely not an inaccurate response.
The Russian cartoonist wasn’t the only one getting creative with Ovechkin’s trophies. Daniel Duffy also drew this amazing piece of word art, which features the date, score and opponent of every Capitals game in 2018.
