In folicular endorsement news, Sport Business Daily is reporting that Alex Ovechkin and Gillette have agreed on a two-year extension, which will keep the Russian machine’s face as smooth as a baby’s behind through the Sochi Winter Olympics. Ovi will continue to serve as a global ambassador and make awesome commercials for the world famous brand too.
The most interesting part of the new agreement, however, is in the details. While many Capitals players grow mustaches in November to raise money for men’s health, Ovechkin is contractually prohibited from doing so. Well, not anymore!
