Did Alex Ovechkin Get In A Bar Fight?

Rumors are swirling that Alex Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin's agent may have gotten into a little scrap at a nightclub not long ago. Granted, it's another spotty Google translation (and noticeably absent is this "news" on any of the more respectable Russian hockey media sites, as well as a byline identifying the author) but here's what it says - take it for what it's worth:
At a pre-tournament matches in Mytishchi known in the past goal keeper, and now agent Gennady Ushakov emerged from the trauma person. It was the "SE", a few days ago after a party in a nightclub near Ushakova off with the club attackers NHL Washington Capitals' Alexander Ovechkinym. After Ovechkin heard insult in his address, among them, and owns an argument, in which the latter had broken jaw. The victim is an agent of another Russian NHL star and friend Ovechkin-forward "Pittsburgh" Yevgeny Malkin.
UPDATE: Thanks to the ever-generous Dmitry Chesnokov for passing this along:
Pavel Lysenkov, a Sovetsky Sport editor, called Alex Ovechkin about an hour ago to find out if the rumor regarding his alleged fight was true. Alex Ovechkin stated that this was not true. Alex added that this was just a rumor. Alex also stated that Ushakov and he have a good relationship.
So there you have it, straight from the horse's mouth, as it were. Rumor quashed.

UPDATE: But apparently not quashed enough to keep Sport-Express from running with it.

UPDATE (8/30): GMGM says the alleged incident is "of no concern" (which isn't necessarily a denial that something happened).
