In Alex Ovechkin’s wedding to the “beautiful” model Nastasiya after tying the knot in the grand Moscow palace
ALEX OVECHKIN is an NHL king on the ice – and has his own “snow queen” at home.
The Washington Capitals star, 37, is married to stunning model Anastasia Shubskaya, aka Nastasiya.
Ovechkin is widely regarded as one of the greatest hockey goalscorers in history.
The Russian star is the second-leading goalscorer of all-time behind Wayne Gretzky and has a plethora of NHL records under his belt.
He was engaged to tennis player Maria Kirilenko before their relationship broke up in July 2014.
Ovechkin first met his future wife Nastasiya at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
But after losing touch for almost five years, they got back together after the hockey star’s breakup with Kirilenko.
The stunning model was born on November 16, 1993 in Switzerland but grew up in Russia.
Nastasiya is the daughter of Kirill Shubsky and Vera Glagoleva, both of Russian descent.
Her father is a businessman, while her mother – who died of cancer in 2017 – was a successful actress, producer and film director.
Nastasiya, 29, currently works as a model and film producer.
She has over 500,000 followers on Instagram and often posts family photos of her everyday life as a hockey wife.
The power couple got engaged in 2015 after dating for just over a year, before saying “I do” in a private ceremony in August 2016.
They were married in the magnificent Fourth Wedding Palace on Butyrskaya in Moscow.
Two years later, the couple in love welcomed their first child, Sergei, before Ilya joined the family in May 2020.
Nastasiya is often spotted supporting her husband at hockey games and keeps her huge fan base updated on her life in the US capital.
She recently shared snaps from a family vacation where she was spoiled for her 29th birthday.
Posing in front of a huge skyscraper, Nastasiya wrote: “I’m going on with my birthday party.”
One fan replied: “May success always and in everything favor you! You only deserve the best.”
While another gushed: “The most beautiful girl.”
And another added: “Our Snow Queen.”
Olechin was the overall pick of the 2004 NHL Draft and has spent his entire career in the United States with the Capitals.
He is only the third NHL player in history, behind Gordie Howe and Gretzky, to have scored 800 goals in the regular season.
