Celebrating its 100th anniversary, the NHL 100 Gala, honoring the league’s greatest players. Jon Hamm, mid-Washington Capitals monologue zinger, accidentally referenced “Sergei” Ovechkin instead of Alex.
Yeah, he totally ‘Sergei Ovechkin’ pic.twitter.com/I2eKXGJfCt

It was an innocent flub on Hamm’s part, though a bit uncomfortable. Alex’s older brother Sergei died after a car accident when Alex was 10.

Ovechkin did find a different Sergei and a Wayne at some point during the evening.
