In praise of the Russian wedding

July 19, 2011

Evgeny Kuznetsov and his bride last month in Chelyabinsk.

Alright, I confess, I’m a month late to this show.

But this June Washington Capitals 2010 26th overall pick and 2011 WJC phenom and champ Evgeny Kuznetsov tied the knot with his fiancee, Anastasia.

I feel compelled to share this just because any wedding with a man in a polar bear costume is automatically a great wedding. Even fi that polar bear is Traktor Chelyabinsk’s mascot, that matters not. This bear was involved in the exchange of rings, as the video shows.

By definition, an excellent wedding. He may be young at the tender age of 19, but with love and hockey, it doesn’t matter.

In other marriage news, last month, Tomas Plekanec was married to girlfriend and Czech superstar Lucie Vondráčková. But he really knocked it out of the park: the couple is expecting.
