On Saturday Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin and his family attended the FC Dynamo game in Moscow. On Sunday he continued his support for local sports teams by attending CSKA Moscow’s basketball game against Zenit. It was second game of the final series of the VTB United League. CSKA Moscow won, 82-73.

The game broadcast reported that Ovechkin came to the game at the invitation of his friend Vitaly “Fritzi” Fridzon, who plays for Zenit.

Ovechkin’s support of local sports teams could be something he does as a job in the future. There have already been reports that Ovechkin could possibly become Russia’s Minister Of Sports when he retires from hockey, although nothing official has been announced.

In December 2020 Ovechkin was named as one of five Ambassadors to the 2022 Special Olympics World Winter Games held in Kazan in January 2022. The Special Olympics World Winter Games ambassadors support the promotion of the Games and the Special Olympics programs during their preparation and running.
