Alex Ovechkin received an outpouring of love on his birthday, Friday. The future Hall of Famer, who returned to the United States from Russia last week, turned 36-years-old.
Less than a week before the start of Capitals training camp, Ovechkin spent the day surrounded by his family — his wife, Nastya; and his two sons Sergei and Ilya, his friends, and his Capitals teammates. After a likely skate at MedStar Capitals Iceplex in the morning, Ovechkin first celebrated at home, blowing out candles of a birthday cake they got him.

Later in the night, Ovechkin drove to DC for a dinner with his friends and Capitals teammates, including Evgeny Kuznetsov, Dmitry Orlov, and Ilya Samsonov.
The night ended at Echostage — Ovechkin’s a huge fan of house music — where the group took in a show at Echostage by Lost Kings. Earlier this month, Echostage was voted the best club in the world.
The VIP Ovechkin got on stage and danced.
Later, an over-exuberent Ovechkin picked up one of the DJs and danced with him up on his shoulder.
Birthday Ovi is the best Ovi.

Hope you had a good one, big guy.
