When Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin isn’t scoring goals, celebrating scoring goals, or making Evgeny Kuznetsov and/or Dmitry Orlov do silly things and posting videos on Instagram, he enjoys making his fiance Maria Kirilenko happy. While the Capitals were in California, Alex Ovechkin found some time while he wasn’t leading the Capitals to taking 5 points out of a possible 6 to buy Maria a pair of earrings. When Maria picked up Ovechkin and Kuznetsov at the airport, Alex said she didn’t seem happy to see him.

It’s Alex Ovechkin, so I’m just going to assume he was joking. Always assume Ovechkin is joking. Later that night, Ovechkin gave Maria her earrings and she seemed extremely happy with him.

Very gorgeous pair of earrings. Now if only Alex Ovechkin could buy a competent top 4 defenseman…
