Alex Ovechkin had a spooky encounter on Tuesday afternoon at MedStar Capitals Iceplex. Ovechkin entered a darkened locker room, lit only with the dim glimmer of television cameras, and found waiting for him in one of the stalls…a disembodied head.
His own gourd, one might say.
Yes, Ovi met pumpkin Ovi. Pumpkin Ovi was presented to Ovechkin by the artist, Suzy Mink. “What a great face, huh?” Ovechkin said, looking at the pumpkin bemused.
Mink told Ovechkin that it took about an hour to etch his likeness onto the pumpkin.

Here is the what pumpkin Ovi looks like in the cold, horrifying light of day.
Mink has carved numerous pumpkin portraits over the years, many of them of political figures or DC athletes.
Here is a ghoulish-looking pumpkin of Brett Kavanaugh, for example.
Pumpkin Dusty Baker likely met an untimely end like his real-life counterpart’s tenure with the Nats:
Pumpkin Katie Ledecky looks like it would take a swim… in the Dead Sea.
Happy Halloween, Caps fans!
