Capitals Captain Alex Ovechkin returned to DC today following a four-day excursion to Moscow to mourn the passing of his uncle. In an effort to remain sharp ahead of tomorrow’s season opener, he briefly took to the ice at Kettler Capitals Iceplex tonight and worked on his shot and stick-handling.
Poor guy. Someone please give him a hug.
Below the jump, check out a few more photos via the Capitals’ James Heuser.
I’d have given him a hug, but I wasn’t there. 🙁
It looks like his shot be off a little hopefully he’s solid for tomorrow night. Was he shooting on Holtby?
Looks like it was Caps PR guy Sergey Kocharov in net: https://twitter.com/#!/SergeyKocharov/status/122488721231708160 — which is impressive, because I initially thought it was Vokoun!
God bless you Ovie! my thoughts and prayers are with you. I’ll be at the opener tomorrow night! I would give you hug!:)
Here’s a hug for you Ovi =]
Here’s my hug for you Ovie (((( )))) You’re not alone, all your fans wish you well and send good thoughts and prayers to you.
