Ovechkin on Movember ‘stache: ‘I feel weird, but it’s fun’

Nov 5, 2013, 6:59 PM EST

Alex Ovechkin is returning from an upper-body injury on Tuesday, but that’s old news. The bigger news – obviously – is that Ovi is growing his first Movember ‘stache, as CSNWashington.com reports.

Here’s photo evidence of the great eight hairs:

When Ovechkin says he feels “fresh,” it’s pretty certain that he’s talking about his physical health heading into tonight’s game against the New York Islanders.

The mustache? Maybe not as fresh.

“First time I did it,” Ovechkin said. “I feel weird, but it’s fun.”

The term “Movechkin” is being thrown around in some quarters. Do you approve?
