ARLINGTON, V.A. — Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin swapped out his stick and gloves for a handful of pizza boxes.
The 36-year-old was wearing his game gear and skating with Papa John’s following Washington’s skate on Wednesday. He was in high spirits, sporting his classic missing-tooth smile while carrying a couple of boxes for a promo.
“You want, guys?” he asked.
Still wearing his skates, the Great 8 dropped a pizza off in the media room.
“When you hungry, you hungry,” he smiled.
The pizza was sausage with cheese-stuffed crust. Washington Hockey Now can confirm that it tastes great.
