Ovechkin shows off Stan­ley Cup at World Cup

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Sports -

Alex Ovechkin has brought the Stan­ley Cup to the World Cup.

The Wash­ing­ton Cap­i­tals cap­tain took the NHL tro­phy to a fan zone in Moscow where World Cup games are screened. With the Rus­sian Na­tional Guard pro­vid­ing se­cu­rity, Ovechkin lifted the cup above his head in front of a crowd of fans, who were al­lowed to take pho­tos with the tro­phy.

“The cup is with us. The cup is in Moscow, Rus­sia,” Ovechkin said.

“I am very happy for the peo­ple that can see it and touch it. I am very, very happy.”

Ovechkin won his first Stan­ley Cup cham­pi­onship a month ago in his 13th sea­son in Wash­ing­ton.
