On Thursday night, Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin returned to the spotlight for the first time since he accepted his fourth Rocket Richard Trophy in Las Vegas. The re-emergence was for good reason.
Ovechkin was the head judge of Miss Moscow 2014. (Hall of famer Pavel Bure was on the panel too.)
“In my opinion everything went very well, very lovely,” Ovechkin said to TV reporter Ivan Obydenkov. “For us, the judges on the panel, it was one hundred percent clear who the winner was.”
We’ve got some important, breaking news on the Alex Ovechkin beat tonight. Margarita Glukhova of ITAR-TASS is reporting that the Russian machine has been named head judge for Miss Moscow 2014.
Ovechkin, 24 hours removed from winning his fourth Maurice “Rocket” Richard trophy, will judge the ladies on their talent and their swimsuits.
Also, if I’m reading this right, Ovechkin will judge a dance number. And if there’s anyone who knows dance, it’s Ovi.
Below, Igor Kleyner has translated the entire press release. Congratulations, Ovi, on this important and distinguished honor.
