Over the last week, we’ve been hit with an influx of cute babies from our Swedish Caps. Nicklas Backstrom’s wife gave birth to the couple’s second child Vince on August 22, and Marcus Johannsson has bombarded his Instagram with photos of his baby daughter Mila.
Tuesday, we completed the Swedish baby trifecta with Andre Burakovsky announcing on Twitter he too has a little one of his own. Only his baby has four legs, not two.
Via lifenews.ru, we have some earth-shattering, ground-breaking news today. Alex Ovechkin has bought a dog! Fedor Fedin has your translation below.
Alex Ovechkin, the best player on the Russian National Team, was one of the last to emerge from the airport after returning from the World Cup which finished yesterday in Germany. It turned out that Ovi actually had a matter to settle with the sanitary inspection and was asked to sign relevant documents for his new acquisition: a two-year-old German shepherd. Alex’s father, Mikhail Viktorovich, left the airport with the new dog. He came to meet Alex with his granddaughter.
“This German shepherd” rejoiced the father of the star hockey player, “is named Gera.”
While inside the airport, the German Shepherd barked at another dog belonging to the Russian Special Police. This should be a good guard dog for the young star’s family. However, Ovi himself did not behave as well as his new friend. He silently went to his father’s car, threw his bags in the back of the trunk and muttered “I’ll go with Sam,” referring to friend Alexander Semin. He did not make any comments to the press.
