Alex Ovechkin is having fun in France

May 26, 2012, 4:40 PM EDT

What does Alex Ovechkin do when he’s not in the playoffs or winning gold at the World Championships? He hangs out with his girlfriend of course.

Ovechkin tweeted a photo from Paris, France saying, “Me and Maria in city of LOVE…..”

Maria, in this case, being tennis star Maria Kirilenko (who will be in the French Open, which you can see on NBC) and the photo showing the Arc de Triomphe in the background. C’est magnifique!


If you’re going to take time off away from hockey, there are worse ways to go about it. Spending it globe trotting ain’t too bad.

    Looks like a hat trick to me.

    Funny, Ovi looks in better shape there then he did in the middle of the season. I guess his hot girlfriend is giving him a good workout…..

    I had the same impression. He looks thin

    Hope to see some sideline interviews with Ovi during the French open. Also, let’s all hope Maria goes a long way so some of her matches get on tv here in the states.

    While she’s frickin’ hot, looks fade over time. I’d still rather have my name engraved on the Cup and hoist it over my head. Still, he has a pretty nice consolation prize.

    I bet the two of them have intelligent conversations
