Russians often have simple ceremonies that are more low key and mellow.

This past season, Ovechkin tallied 33 goals and 36 assists for a Capitals team that was the class of the Eastern Conference all year long. Oshie, Marcus Johansson and Justin Williams will be called upon to step up and stabilize Washington's offense.
Luckily, it appears the injury looked worse than it actually is.
