The summer is always the perfect time for a wedding, especially for hockey players because the offseason is the only time they can actually relax a little bit.


This summer, Steven Stamkos married his longtime girlfriend (not Nate Thompson) and Saturday Matt Duchene and Alexander Ovechkin both followed suit.



I get to marry her today😍. Could not feel more lucky or blessed, today is gonna be👌

Yes, we know what you're thinking, Ovi got married last year to Anastasia Shubskaya, but Saturday the two decided to hold a spectacular reception for their friends and family to celebrate.



Most beautiful couple and the wedding in the world 🌎 Alex @aleksandrovechkinofficial and Nastya @nastyashubskaya ❤️

The reception was incredible and it featured a little bit of everything, from dancing to singing, to a giant cake.

The highlight of the night, though, was a shirtless Ovi singing and dancing along to 'Rasputin.'


Shirtless Ovi is now our favourite Ovi and probably the rest of the world's favourite Ovi, too.

Clearly the night was incredible and we just want to wish Alex and Anastasia all the best.
