Alex Ovechkin Announces Relationship With Russian Tennis Star Maria Kirilenko (Photos)Capitals left winger Alex Ovechkin has scored just eight goals in 23 games, but he scored a new girlfriend that has probably helped take his mind off of his early-season struggles.

Ovechkin announced on Wednesday via his official Twitter account that he is dating Russian tennis star Maria Kirilenko.

He tweeted a picture of the couple together and added, “Me and my girlfriend Maria….she is my queen!!!!”

Rumors began to surface earlier this week about their relationship via the Montreal Gazette, but Ovechkin’s announcement seals the deal. The Gazette reported that Kirilenko has been spending her offseason in Arlington, Va., which is relatively close to Washington, D.C.
