Two Alex Ovechkins in one town? Believe it. Sort of.

Madame Tussauds Washington D.C. unveiled its wax statue of the Capitals star Monday. The real Ovechkin's assessment: "He's a good-looking guy." Even Ovechkin's father, Mikhail, approved.

The Madame Tussauds staff took 250 measurements and photographs of Ovechkin for the statue, and has been working since July to finish the project.

"Alex Ovechkin is a tremendous athlete who has captivated hockey fans not only in the Washington D.C. area, but across the nation as well," Madame Tussauds Washington D.C. general manager Dan Rogoski said Monday in a statement. "We are honored to add a figure of Alex to our roster of sports icons and know our guests will enjoy interacting and lining up alongside him for photos in our Sports Zone."
