Alex Ovechkin may be engaged to Maria Kirilenko, but that doesn’t mean he won’t impress the ladies when given the opportunity. In a new video released by Gillette Russia, The Great Eight performs some fancy trick shots for young Russian women near the rink.
“Sasha, Sasha!” the girls scream in the beginning of the video, asking for an autograph.
“Let me do something better than autographs,” Ovechkin says. “Come with me.”
That’s when the magic happens.
Ovi asks for three volunteers to come out onto the ice with him. “Don’t get scared,” Ovi says.
He lines the girls up in front of the net and tells them, “Don’t move, or this will hurt.”
The Washington Capitals captain then drops a puck to the ice and casually blasts a shot through the three girls’ high heels right into the net. Beaming, Ovechkin asks,”Was that good?”
No, it wasn’t good enough. Ovi skates over to other girls watching from the bench and asks them all to come onto the ice.
After dismissing two women wearing flats, Ovechkin takes a pass from someone off camera and shoots through eight girls’ high heels.
“Was that good?” Ovechkin asks again. The girls reply, “Well done. Sasha, you are the best!”
Of course he is. Smile for the camera, Ovi.
So what do you guys think? Are the trick shots real or fake?
