On Monday, the Russian Hockey Federation unveiled the new jerseys that will be worn by both the men’s and women’s Olympic hockey teams come February. Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin was chosen to model the jersey along with Alexandra Kapustina from the women’s national team.

Team USA’s jerseys, also designed by Nike, will be unveiled on Tuesday.
