Stanley Cup champion Alex Ovechkin celebrated his 33rd birthday party in style, Monday night. Joined by his wife Nastya, his mom Tatyana, his agent David, his physical trainer Pavel, and his close friend Gus, Ovechkin ate at the Peking Gourmet Inn in Falls Church, Virginia, and feasted on three roasted ducks.
The Chinese restaurant, formerly frequented by 41st President of the United States George H. W. Bush, has its walls filled with framed photos of its most famous visitors like PSY, Duff Goldman, and George W. Bush. After winning his first championship, Ovechkin may now be its most famous.
At the end of the dinner, the staff came out and sang Ovechkin happy birthday in Chinese.

The Russian machine, who has visited the restaurant before, has his photo on the wall near the hostess stand.
His picture is on the wall pretty close to the hostess stand. Took this pic a few days before the cup was hoisted. pic.twitter.com/mwZVVKhpl9

Ovechkin’s birthday celebrate actually started in the morning as Pavel and Gus came along with Nastya and held up birthday balloons in the stands.

Eventually, the crew made it back to Ovechkin’s Northern Virginia home where they celebrated with a very healthy birthday cake and even more balloons.
Ovechkin wrote on Instagram, “33)) thank you all for all the congratulations and birthday wishes!) ❤️”
