Video: Alex Ovechkin Sends Hundreds of Small Children into Frenzy, Signs Autographs After Morning Skate
Before Alex Ovechkin recorded his first hat trick in nearly two years, he had to escape a throng of frenzied children blocking his exit from Dynamo’s morning skate Saturday in Donetsk, Ukraine. As captured by a Donbass Donetsk employee, the children were unimpressed by Toronto Maple Leaf Leo Komarov, who walked out first. Then, Ovechkin in a light blue sweatshirt and grey beanie, emerged and the kids swarmed him at the bottom of the steps. After signing photos, Ovechkin finally escaped up the steps, took a few photos with fans, and jumped into the safety of Dynamo’s team bus.
