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.
Putin reportedly gave Trump a World Cup soccer ball. Somewhere there’s a Finnish Sports Authority employee with a story to tell.
Per Russian news outlet NTV:
Путин подарил Трампу ⚽️ мяч, а тот в ответ — шайбу 🏒и майку российского хоккеиста Овечкина

Here’s that in English and without the emoji:
Putin spokesman Peskov says Trump gave Putin Alexander Ovechkin's Washington Capitals jersey as a gift. And a puck. (Putin plays hockey)

Alex Ovechkin is a hockey player for the Washington Capitals. He plays offense. He scored 49 goals this season. He has several dogs and at least one of them is named Ovechkin. He won the Stanley Cup one time, which is one time more than Jeremy Roenick. He loves to celebration, he loves to goals. He is from Russia and his mother played basketball really well. He’s singlehandedly responsible for the decline in the popularity of Ed Hardy t-shirts over the last decade.
Russian Machine Never Breaks is not associated with the Washington Capitals; Monumental Sports, the NHL, or its properties. Not even a little bit.
