Last year as a 19-year-old, Washington Capitals prospect Evgeny Kuznetsov was chosen to be on the March cover of Russia’s most popular sports publication, ProSport Magazine. With the NHL lockout wreaking havoc to the 2012-13 season, another kinda-Capital will be gracing ProSport’s cover: two-time NHL MVP and high-fashion model Alex Ovechkin.
The December edition, which will be on sale from December 17 to January 20, 2013, features Ovi in some kind of black mumu sweater thing with the headline “Sasha, from the USA” and “Ovechkin in the KHL.” Now that’s a tease!
Thankfully, to whet our appetite until we get our hands on the latest issue, ProSport has released a somewhat erotic behind-the-scenes video of Ovechkin modeling for their photoshoot. And because I’d rather crop screenshots of Ovechkin shirtless in Photoshop than spend time with my girlfriend and ferrets, here’s some stills too!
