Washington Capitals left winger Alex Ovechkin and his girlfriend of five months announced they got engaged over their Instagram accounts earlier this afternoon. The Caps’ captain and Nastya Shubskaya, his now Russian model fiancée, have been reportedly dating since March of 2015. Shubskaya, 21, is a Russian model and the daughter of Russian actress and director Vera Glagoleva.
Ovechkin met Shubskaya after his engagement with Russian tennis player Maria Kirilenko abruptly ended. Kirilenko is currently married and recently become a mother.
Ovechkin, 29, and Shubskaya join Washington center Brooks Laich and actress and Dancing With the Stars judge Julianne Hough in getting engaged this offseason.
Newly acquired right winger T.J. Oshie and his wife, Lauren Cosgrove, tied the knot just a few weeks ago after Oshie’s acquisition in a trade with the St. Louis Blues.
Congratulations to the most recently engaged Washington Capital!
