Alex comes with a baby child this summer
Alex and his wife / Source: www.sportsnet.ca A very exciting summer continues for Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin. On Saturday Ovi became a father, his son was named Sergey Alexandrovich Ovechkin (the middle name is a patronymic which is obligatory in Russia). Alex and Nastya Ovechkin named their first child after Alex's older brother Sergey, who died in a traffic accident at 25 when Ovi was only 10 years old. Sergey had a great impact on Alex's future hockey career, he took Ovi for the hockey school for the first time, motivated him and persuaded parents to allow Alex continue his hockey training (their parents thought hockey is a very traumatic kind of sport). In memory of the older brother Ovechkin has his name on the hockey gloves.
