One of D.C.'s most eligible athletes will be off the market soon. Washington Capitals star Alex Ovechkin announced on Twitter that he and Russian tennis player Maria Kirilenko are engaged. "We are engaged !!!!!!! )))))))))[sic]," Ovi tweeted. The pair has been together since November 2011. Kirilenko played for Russia during the Summer Olympics, taking home a bronze in women's doubles. Ovi was of course in London cheering her on. No plans for the wedding have been shared, but maybe Ovi will start planning with the NHL still in a lockout.
