After an eventful Monday morning practice which featured an apparent injury, then a machine-like recovery, Alex Ovechkin proved he was feeling fine by returning to the rink just a few hours later to do some off-ice workouts with his personal trainer, Pavel.
He also brought along his one-year-old son, Sergei, for a tour of MedStar Capitals Iceplex. As documented by wife Nastya, Alex stopped and pointed at a photo of himself and Nicklas Backstrom holding up the Stanley Cup.
“Papa, Backy, and Stanley Cup,” Ovechkin said as he twirled his son towards the poster
Nastya documented the Capitals’ team records that line the hallway of the training rink, many of which are held by her husband.
When the family walked through the colder part of the rink, papa Ovi made sure to put Sergei’s hood on.
Sergei played with an exercise ball as his dad worked out on a stationary bike.
Father and son also took a photo in front of Ovechkin’s locker. According to Ovechkin, the injuries to his face and knuckles were from the bicycle accident he suffered the previous day.
