After making history last night against the Arizona Coyotes in the Washington Capitals’ 3-2 loss at Capital One Arena, Alex Ovechkin concluded Sunday’s practice enjoying some one-on-one time with oldest son Sergei.

Ovechkin passed NHL great Gordie Howe as the NHL’s all-time leader in Goals Scored with one franchise, a moment that resulted in a raucous reaction from the Capitals faithful at Capital One Arena.

After Sunday’s practice at MedStar Capitals Iceplex, Ovechkin was joined on-ice by his oldest son Sergei (4), aka “Ovi Jr.”, who appears to have mastered his skating skills, complete with his father’s signature yellow laces.

Ovechkin also shares another son, Ilya (2), with wife Nastya, whom he married in 2016. His family was in attendance last night when he broke Howe’s record.
