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.

Photos of Ovechkin as a Kid

There are no words for how cute this is.

Nice speedo, Mikhail!

Judging by the hair, Ovi’s going through his goth stage.

A Russian mural of Ovechkin with a fro riding a donkey. You can’t make this stuff up.
