Ovechkin surprises Virginia residents as pizza delivery guy


Turns out Alex Ovechkin doesn't just deliver on the ice.

The Wasington Capitals star spent his off day Friday helping Papa John's make and deliver pizza in northern Virginia.

When he hit the road and showed up at the doors of the unsuspecting locals, the reactions were priceless.

As for Ovechkin's personal preference in pie, his favorite kind of pizza is a little unconventional.

It's not the first time he's collaborated with the pizza chain, with which he has a multi-year endorsement deal, but this particular slice of his off-ice life will never get stale.
