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!
