Back In The Day Alex Ovechkin Shared His Redskins Jersey With Nicklas Backstrom

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 5, 2014 – 2:10 pm

Down the jersey rabbit hole we go.

On Wednesday the DC Sports Bog directed me to this article from Dick’s Sporting Goods about reigning NHL MVP Alex Ovechkin’s jersey collection.

“I have LeBron and am going to get Kobe and Michael Jordan,” Ovechkin said. “I also have RG3 and Chris Cooley ones.”

 

After a little digging through the archives in this space, I found images from 2008 and 2009 that verify at least one item in the closet of the Washington Capitals captain.

Here’s Ovi wearing a Chris Cooley jersey during a day full of field goal attempts at FedExField.

Interestingly enough, Nicklas Backstrom is wearing the same Sean Taylor jersey Ovechkin wore to FedExField one night in 2008. Unless, that is, he also owns a white, No. 21 jersey with an identical Jason Campbell signature and Redskins button.

The Redskins blog has yet to obtain photographic evidence of Ovechkin’s Robert Griffin III jersey, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled.

Ovechkin’s generosity will be tested at the XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

The member of the host country’s hockey team should at least hook up his Swedish friend with an incandescent bulb or some translucent water.

    You can easily find a picture of Alex Ovechkin in his Robert Griffin III jersey in a picture he tweeted on October 20th and here: http://www.russianmachineneverbreaks.com/2013/09/09/alex-ovechkin-tailgates-at-fedex-field-before-monday-night-football-game-wears-rg3-jersey-photos/
