Washington Capitals superstar Alexander Ovechkin took his skills to the soccer pitch as he signed a one-day contract with Russian soccer club Dynamo Moscow. He would make his professional debut in a friendly match against Amkal, a team made up of social media personalities.
It did not take long for Ovechkin to prove that he belonged, either. In just the 11th minute of the first half, he scored on a perfectly placed shot. His goal turned out to be the game winner as Dynamo went on to secure a 5-0 win.
Ovi is known for his enthusiastic goal celebrations on the ice and this translated to the soccer field, as he had a huge smile on his face and was jumping around like he had just won the World Cup after burying his goal.
The Russian star is also known for his physical style of play on the ice. And he was not shy to bring that attitude to the pitch, as he sent his opponent flying with a body check at one point in the game.
For his efforts, Ovechkin was named as the MVP of the match.
