Tennis stunner engaged to NHL star
14:04 AEST Tue Jan 1 2013

NHL star Alex Ovechkin has used Twitter to trumpet his engagement to tennis glamour Maria Kirilenko.

Ovechkin posted a picture of the Russian sports power couple on Monday.

"We are engaged" tweeted 27-year-old Ovechkin, a star for the NHL's Washington Capitals who is playing in his home country during the lockout that has idled the North American league and threatens to wipe out the entire season.

The accompanying photo showed the pair, both wearing skates, posing arm in arm on a patch of outdoor ice.

Kirilenko, who turns 26 this month, is the world No.14 and a five-time winner on the WTA Tour.

In 2008, the Russian was voted the sexiest player on the WTA Tour and the following year she posed for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

The two have been dating since late last year, and Ovechkin was on hand in July at the All England Club when Kirilenko reached the Wimbledon quarter-finals for the first time.
