Alex Ovechkin had to be helped off the ice after suffering a left leg injury during a Capitals’ informal scrimmage on Monday. He returned later and was fine. But it was the injuries he suffered the night before which ended up being more concerning – just for how noticeable they were.
“[Sunday] night, I fell off bike,” Alex Ovechkin said. His face was cut up and bruised. “Shit happens,” he added, downplaying the incident.
Ovechkin had cuts, scrapes, and bruises on his nose, chin, eyebrow, elbow, forearms, and his knuckles on both hands. It looks bad.
Here’s a look at the full extent of Ovi’s boo-boos.

Later, Ovi took his son Sergei and his wife Nastya to the Capitals’ training facility for a late-night workout. Ovi had gashes and bruises on his right arm and elbow (Image via @nastyashubskaya).
Ovechkin took a photo with Sergei in the locker room. His nose looked more curve-y than usual (but that could be the lighting). Ovi had gashes and cuts on his right and left hands (Image via @nastyashubskaya).
Ovechkin also showed off a gnarly gash above his left eye and his cut-up hands when surprising school children with Ovi O’s on Tuesday.
Whatever happened, most normal people would probably go to the hospital after a bad accident like this. But Ovi showed up to work the next day. He must really love his office.
