Former Capitals forward and current captain of HC Vityaz, Alex Semin, took part in the KHL All-Star weekend in late January.
As part of the festivities, ESPN’s Emily Kaplan polled some of the players on a broad range of topics, from what they like to splurge on, to who the best hockey player in the world is right now.
Semin stuck by his fellow Young Gun and name-twin when he gave his answer: Alex Ovechkin.
In addition to being asked who the best hockey player in the world right now is, Kaplan also asked who the most talented player Semin had faced in his career?
“There’s not one person to me; everyone is equal to me when I come on the ice,” Semin said. “But … Ovi.”
These two’s bromance forever, please.
