Alex Ovechkin was hanging out with his dad, Mikhail, and his son, Sergei, in his pool house back at home in Russia.
While Mikhail watched his rambunctious grandson, Ovi shot video of the historic memorabilia he hung up in the room.
What a room.
Here’s a list of all the notable things I see:
Ovechkin has a ton of hockey memorabilia, including his own record-breaking game-used jerseys, goal pucks, and gloves as well as hundreds of game-used hockey sticks from himself and other star players, between both of his homes in Northern Virginia and in Moscow. Someday maybe there will even be an Alex Ovechkin hockey museum.
“To be honest with you right now, I have a lot,” Ovechkin said in February, weeks before hitting the 700-goal milestone. “My wife tell me to stop. We don’t have any space in our gym. It’s great for my family, kids, grandkids when I’m gonna be dead. My kids gonna look at it and appreciate it.”
Wayne Gretzky recently donated Ovi his 807th goal with after Ovi completed a bet (winning the Stanley Cup) while Darius Kasparitus gave Ovi a game-used stick and goal puck from the most famous play of his career.
Thanks for sharing, Ovi!
