Alexander Ovechkin: The Capitals’ star, who led Washington to the best record in the NHL this season (only to gag in the postseason), recently vacationed in Turkey with some “Russian models.” The photos, courtesy of LifeSports.ru and picked up by the Russian blog Alex Ovetjkin, show the Caps’ star dancing and drinking and enjoying life like any 24 year-old multi-millionaire.

And starting in August, DC will be in the palm of Donovan McNabb’s hand.
