You knew it was coming. Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin has taken up the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and he has done it in true Ovi fashion.

Wearing only tight black shorts and a gold necklace, Ovechkin– whose head is cut off in the video– introduces the video from a shower before dumping ice water on his head.

Ovechkin challenged Alex Radulov, Evgeni Malkin, Sergei Bobrovsky, and Eminem to complete the challenge next. One of these things is not like the others.

Ovi. Best.

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge continues to tear a path of destruction through social media, leaving cold puddles and piles of cash in its wake. Today’s episode features some more Caps notables.

    I heard “Evgeni Malkin, Bob, and Radulov.” There’s a few things before that but I can’t really make it out. Certainly doesn’t sound like “Eminem”?

    Fehrsie needs to rotate his video 90 degrees counterclockwise. (Or do they say anticlockwise?) They’re all pretty cool, though.

  • Jonah

    i mean he looks less fat, but he’s still a lazy russian who doesn’t play defense and only cares about scoring goals for himself, you know. isn’t that right don cherry?

    Sorry to be a downer but did OVI just dump ice in a warm bucket of water?

    Looked pretty lame to me.

  • Kait

    I almost think that may be his wife… which makes the evil, feminine cackle afterwards even more hilarious.
