Alex Ovechkin, along with several teammates, did not participate in the Washington Capitals’ optional skate in #CLUMBUS on Wednesday. Now we may know why.

Inside the locker room, Ovi — wearing full goalie gear — was busy playing a game of ball hockey with his teammates, defending the invisible net behind him. It’s priorities, people.

After scoring four points and force-of-willing the Caps to another victory, Ovi can do whatever he wants today.

The last time Ovi dressed as a goaltender was when he defended the Caps net during practice with Make-a-Wish kid Sam Jacobson. Awesome.

  • Impressive and enigmatic all at the same time.

    Can you imagine the shitstorm that would happen if this GK happened to do that after a shootout win in the NHL?

  • Yeah, I did! Too bad it’s CGI though. Hockey needs a goalie that does flips like Ozzie Smith before and after games. Or hell after goals.

  • David Pearl-Schwartz

    Look at that form!

  • Owen Johnson

    Wow. That’s dickishly awesome by Lehtonen.

    Your Ovechkin has evolved into GOALIVECHKIN

  • Chris Cerullo

    He’s actually done this more than once which is hilarious

    Do you think Ovie would improve his game if he had yellow ties and a proper goalie twig?

    Although there was a time during a Carolina Hurricanes’ practice earlier this year when goalie Anton Khudobin was doing somersaults.

    That’s some bush league psych out shit, man!

    While searching for Alexander Ovechkin highlight videos provided by the always generous RMNB syndicate, I stumbled across a new addition to the Toronto Maple Leafs. Canada you know no bounds….
