Alex Ovechkin is having fun in France

What does Alex Ovechkin do when he’s not in the playoffs or winning gold at the World Championships? He hangs out with his girlfriend of course.

Ovechkin tweeted a photo from Paris, France saying, “Me and Maria in city of LOVE.....”

Maria, in this case, being tennis star Maria Kirilenko (who will be in the French Open, which you can see on NBC) and the photo showing the Arc de Triomphe in the background. C’est magnifique!

If you’re going to take time off away from hockey, there are worse ways to go about it. Spending it globe trotting ain’t too bad.
