The Washington Capitals have dispersed all across North America for their NHL bye week, and on Monday, we found out an amazing bit of news. The Oshie family, the Alzner clan, and the Winnik crew are all vacationing together at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.
The Oshie family included TJ, his wife Lauren, their two daughters Leni and Lyla, and Lauren’s sister, Ally. Karl and Mandy Alzner brought along their little ones, Stella and Anson. Daniel Winnik tagged along too and brought his lovely wife, Taylor. All three families look like they are literally having the best time ever.
It appears the old band is getting back together!
Nicklas Backstrom and former Capitals defenseman Mike Green are vacationing together during the All-Star Break. Mike Green’s wife Courtney captured the two former teammates in the pool. Backstrom can be seen playing with Greenie’s son Axel while his red-haired daughter Haley, wearing two pool floaties, is seen swimming in the background.
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.
Over the past week, Washington Capitals rookie forward Evgeny Kuznetsov has been jet-setting across the world on vacation with his wife Nastya.
Kuzya could certainly use the rest and relaxation. Last season, the winger played hockey in two different leagues and did not make the playoffs in either. He also participated in the World Championship and suffered two somewhat major injuries.
The 22-year-old has addressed his pressing mental and physical concerns by taking a vacation that is positively siiiiickkkk.
Let’s vicariously enjoy it (like we did with his car), shall we?
