Alex Ovechkin spent his first Saturday off since last summer playing in a charity basketball game in Moscow, Russia.

Ovi certainly received the greatest round of applause during pre-game warm-ups. (Ovi donning the traditional #8 with green shoes).

It turns out Ovi is just as much a free shooter in basketball as he is on the ice. This shot rang “off the pipes”.

As to be expected, any public appearance by Ovi requires a lot of pictures with fans. No summers off in Russia.
