Alexander Ovechkin, Washington Capitals get all dressed up for Halloween (photos)


In what likely will be first of many Halloween costume-themed content readers will see throughout Friday, here’s Alexander Ovechkin and his Washington Capitals teammates getting all dressed up and costumed for the festive fall holiday.

Above is Dmitry Orlov, Evgeny Kuznetsov and Ovechkin dressed as “The Three Musketeers.” Not too shabby, but “The Three Amigos” would have been cooler.

And quite frankly, Ovi’s cowboy getup while going all “Urban Cowboy” during a road trip to Calgary was a much more amusing getup, but oh well.

Anyhoo, here’s a mustachioed Ovi musketeer fraternizing — or more accurately, stabbing — an Angry Bird.


Not to be outdone, Brooks Laich, along with cutie-pie girlfriend Julianne Hough (who have been an item since at least February), went as Austin Powers and Felicity Shagwell.


Shagadelic. Or whatever.

Meanwhile, Liam O’Brien, Tom Wilson, Michael Latta and Joel Ward dressed up as members of Average Joe’s Gym and Globo-Gym in a nod to “Dodgeball.”

Finally, and perhaps best of all, here’s prospect Stan Galiev and Tomas Kundratek, along with their wives, making their costumed ode to Scooby, Fred and Velma and Daphne.


Far out. But where’s Shaggy? That’s, like, hey, not cool, man. Zoinks!
