Just a few days after joining the Washington Capitals’ informal skates at MedStar Capitals Iceplex, captain Alex Ovechkin attended another first, visiting FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland for the Washington Commanders’ (NFL) first game of the season, along with Capitals prospects Alexander Alexeyev and Aliaksei Protas.
Ovechkin, who previously attended the team’s (then-known as the Washington Football Team) home season opener in 2021 (picture above), was also joined by wife Nastya and oldest son Sergei.

Alexeyev and Protas, who figure to be contributors in the Capitals’ lineup at some point in the not-too distant future, shared photos to their Instagram stories of their view of the crowd and stadium.
