‘Beat Gretzky’s record’: Alex Ovechkin’s parents post emotional video for son after scoring 700th goal
Alex Ovechkin’s parents, Tatyana and Mikhail, have been his biggest supporters throughout his hockey career. And though he seems to break a new record every other day–whether the record is from his franchise, this season, or the entirety of NHL history–they still make the time to recognize his accomplishments.
When Ovechkin scored goal number 700, Tatyana and Mikhail, who are currently in Russia, recorded a video congratulating him.
They wished he and his young family well, praised the fans in DC, and thanked the Washington Capitals “because they have this camaraderie, and love each other,” Mikhail said. “[They’re] just a great team, thank god.”
