Alex Ovechkin Gives Wife Nastya A Tour Of His Hockey Stick Collection


Over the years we’ve brought you several looks at Washington Capitals’ captain Alex Ovechkin’s hockey stick collection. We presented our first glimpse of Ovechkin’s stick collection back in 2015. Then we brought you a closer look at Ovechkin’s man cave and his memorabilia collection in 2o16.

We also brought you an inside look when former Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Darius Kasparaitis donated to Ovechkin his stick and puck that he scored the famous Game 7 overtime goal on May 10, 2001, against the Buffalo Sabres.

The Capitals captain recently spoke about his stick collection and plans for his museum in a unique interview with his wife, Nastya, conducted over the summer but released by Russian media outlet MatchTV in September.

Now Ovechkin discusses his collection with his wife in their Northern Virginia home.

Nastya asked Alex about his first stick, which came from Mario Lemieux. The two also discussed which stick was the most difficult to obtain, which was Connor McDavid’s stick. Ovechkin also talked about his plans for the collection once his playing days are done.

As Ovechkin stated, all of the sticks and game memorabilia will eventually reside in his museum in Russia. I wouldn’t be surprised if many Caps fans eventually make the pilgrimage to Ovechkin’s homeland to visit his museum, but maybe we could convince him to open one in North America, too?
