For those who love your hockey with a side of hip hop, I have some fun news for you. Last week when Alex Ovechkin dropped by the ESPN Los Angeles set, he spoke at length about his relationship with Lil’ Wayne during an interview with Neil Everett and Barry Melrose.
In summary: Ovi is Lil’ Wayne’s “dude” and Lil’ Wayne is Ovi’s “man.”
Thursday night in the Caps’ (unnecessarily) thrilling 4-3 win over the Minnesota Wild, Alex Ovechkin scored his 14th career hat trick. With the goals, Ovechkin became the new league leader (34) in the category, passing some guy. He also moved into sole possession of 39th place on the all-time goals list (509 goals), leap-frogging one of the greatest players of all-time, Jean Beliveau.
After the game, Ovechkin was congratulated online by fellow rapper Lil Wayne. (Wait, what? Is this a typo?)

First it was Pauly D. Then it was Michael Vick. This past Friday, it was First Lady Michelle Obama. And tonight, Alex Ovechkin posted a photo of him and what seems like half of the team posing with Lil’ Wayne and Drake.
