Last weekend, Alex Ovechkin and Nastya Ovechkina got married in a lavish wedding at Barvikha Luxury Village, just outside of Moscow. Famous Russian musicians performed in front of a guest list that included some of the biggest names in hockey. During the reception, host Nikolay Baskov read a telegram that Russian President Vladimir Putin sent to congratulate the young couple. Putin then called the Ovechkins to wish them well.
But that wasn’t all. Putin also sent the Ovechkins a wedding gift.
