Alex Ovechkin, wife Nastya and son Sergei took time out on Thursday for a little indoor fun at ZavaZone in Sterling, Virginia. While Sergei seemed to thoroughly enjoy the trampolines, his father also got in on the action.
Alex’s son Sergei showed no fear and was grinning from ear to ear as he tried ZavaZone’s trampolines. Mother Nastya filmed the happy boy’s spin.
The Capitals captain, donning his COVID-19 protective mask, also got in on the action, trying his hand at one of the facilities obstacle courses.

Dmitry Orlov and Evgeny Kuznetsov also accompanied the Ovechkin’s for some of the fun.
Family time is always at a premium for professional athletes, but never more so than now. Ovechkin and his teammates will begin training camp on Monday and will then head to Toronto for an unknown period of time to begin play in the NHL’s 2020 playoffs. Ovechkin and the Capitals could be in quarantine for as much as two months.
NHL Phase 4 protocol says players’ families will be allowed to join for Conference Finals and Stanley Cup Final in Edmonton and will be allowed to share hotel rooms.
That means players advancing will go a minimum of five weeks away from their families.
