Mini Ovechkin (Sergei) apparently has a cardboard cutout of dad Alex Ovechkin's face that he carries around on a stick, according to a video posted on the Capitals' Twitter Wednesday.
Washington's captain, Ovechkin, and the team left D.C. on Wednesday to start a two-game road trip with stops in Nashville and Dallas.
After Ovechkin himself has provided Caps fans with so many memorable and endearing moments--the top one being his skate with the Stanley Cup and subsequent hand-off to Nicklas Backstrom--it's only fitting his offspring does the same.
And really, don't we all wish we could carry a cutout of Ovi's face around all the time? It sure would come in handy in emergencies!
