Alex Ovechkin took the Stanley Cup to Russia over the weekend and showed off the greatest trophy in sports at the World Cup and around his childhood hockey rink.
As each team member gets a day with the Stanley Cup at some point this summer, the team captain actually got a couple. So Saturday, he took the Cup to World Cup fans in Moscow and had a special moment with his father, who held the trophy for the first time.
Ovi said he wanted to share the Cup with the people, and that’s exactly what he did.
And yes, he’s still sleeping with it.
Then, of course, he continued the party with some of his teammates, including Evgeny Kuznetsov and Dmitry Orlov, in his final hours with the Stanley Cup. Their continued adventures and fun with the trophy involved eating caviar and drinking champagne out of it. Plus, more crazy dance partying and an awesome cake tribute to the first time Stanley Cup champion.
Here’s a look inside Ovi’s final party with the Cup.
