On Sunday, the Russian television channel NTV published an in-depth feature on Alex Ovechkin, which included interviews from Tatiana Ovechkin (his mom), Mikail Ovechkin (his dad), Maria Kirilenko (his super-hot, super-talented girlfriend), and the man himself. While we haven’t had time to translate the Russian yet, you need to see this video featuring new footage of young Ovi. And warning: it’s dangerously adorable, so don’t operate any heavy machinery while viewing.

There are no words for how cute this is.
Nice speedo, Mikhail!
Judging by the hair, Ovi’s going through his goth stage.
