This weekend, Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin flew to France to enjoy the lovely beaches of St. Tropez. On what he described as his vacation, Ovechkin hung out with former KHL player (CSKA) Ruben Begunts and Brooklyn Nets small forward Andrei Kirilenko (Maria’s cousin).

And for the first time ever, I saw Ovechkin dive.

Those back tats have really aged gracefully haven’t they?

Of course, Ovechkin did some posing for the camera. That’s mandatory in an Ovi instagram.

Here are the rest of the photos from his trip so far.

    Looks pretty happy for a guy who just had his engagement called off

  • Shaun Phillips

    Was thinking that brunette next to him could be part of the reason.

  • Clifford Snarlington

    Pretty sure he’ll have plenty of ladies who are willing to help him grieve.

  • Matt

    Is it just me, or does he look fat? 😉

    I hope they broke up before Ovi meeting that woman…. or I will jinx her. http://media.tumblr.com/fa05873ad1e3517e3988f07f445a4092/tumblr_inline_mj6flfy53n1qz4rgp.gif

  • Shaun Phillips

    Me too. Although I was thinking she was part of the reason for him looking happy, not necessarily breaking it up.

  • Please, no, not again.


    Im.sure it’s a lot easier for a multi millionaire bachelor to get over it than it would be for the normal guy.
