Alex Ovechkin

Many have asked about Alex Ovechkin. He and his family were traveling on Saturday, returning from a cruise they were on for the past week. The news here? It appears Ovi flew coach! 😂

Ovechkin and his wife then attended Dmitry Olorv’s birthday party on Saturday night, going directly from the airport to the celebration.


T.J. Oshie, Andre Burakovsky and Marcus Johansson get together for a little Pickleball before the wedding today.

Backstrom was not the only Swedish NHL star who got married on Saturday. Filip Forsberg married his American girlfriend, Erin Alvey. William Karlsson and Emily Ferguson also got married in Las Vegas with a total of 150 guests invited.

More to come!
