On Monday, Alex Ovechkin‘s parents spoke to SovSport’s Pavel Lysenkov about their son’s latest donation to charity: 70 bags of hockey equipment to a Moscow Region orphanage.
The conversation was not limited to the donation. Olympic champion Tatyana Ovechkina revealed to Lysenkov that her son was finished a graduate program and will defend a dissertation either “this year or next.”
Um, excuse me? Ovechkin’s getting his PhD in Russia? This is news.
