Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin spent last night hanging out with his wife Nastya Ovechkina, teammate Dmitry Orlov and his wife Varvara Orlova, and former teammate Dmitrij Jaskin and his wife Nadiya.
The crew gathered together for some karaoke performances, which Nadiya documented on her Instagram. She captioned a photo of the group with “sending the boys off to Washington.”

Nastya showed off her solo vocal stylings, which Nadiya captioned “Oh how she sings! Our beauty.” Later in the evening, Alex Ovechkin and the Jaskins joined in to sing Cowards Don’t Play Hockey, a popular hockey anthem in Russia. Their rendition was more enthusiastic than it was on-key.
Here’s how the song should actually sound like.
The three couples have remained close this offseason. The Jaskins and Orlovs were most recently in attendance at Sergei Ovechkin’s first birthday party.
The karaoke crew had also done karaoke together to ring in the New Year with a round of We Are The Champions, which Ovechkin previously sang at the Caps’ Halloween party. (At that party Kuznetsov also showed off his rap skills, Jakub Vrana and Tom Wilson belted out the Backstreet Boys, and Christian Djoos honored his home country by rocking out to ABBA.)
When the Ovechkins and Orlovs head back to DC, the Jaskins will remain in Moscow. Dmitrij was claimed by the Capitals after the Blues put him on waivers before the start of the 2018-19 season, but the Capitals did not extend his contract. Jaskin has since signed with Ovechkin’s former KHL team Dynamo Moscow.
