Looks like Alexander Ovechkin has met his match.

The Capitals’ 27-year-old captain announced Monday on Twitter that he and Russian tennis star Maria Kirilenko, 25, have decided to get married.

In Ovechkin’s tweet, which is followed by this picture, the big left wing states: “We are engaged !!!!!!! )))))))))"

Guess those exclamation points and smiles are a sign the big guy's excited about the idea.

Ovechkin and Kirilenko have been dating for a little over a year. She is currently ranked 14th in the World Tennis Association rankings.

Back in September, I talked with Ovi about his relationship with Kirilenko and he couldn’t say enough good things about her.
