Ovechkin on Olympic participation: You should ask the head of NHL Bettman this
MOSCOW, February 5 – RIA Novosti. Russian forward and Washington Capitals captain Alexander Ovechkin addressed a journalist’s question to National Hockey League (NHL) Commissioner Gary Bettman about his opportunity to play at the Winter Olympics and the World Hockey Championship.
The Russian participated in the 2023 NHL All-Star Game. The Washington captain played on the Capital Division team, which lost the Atlantic Division team to the eventual tournament winners in the semifinals (6:10). Ovechkin recorded one goal and one assist.
“It’s been a great weekend. We had a lot of positive emotions and memorable moments. Kids and kids had fun too. Yes I scored but there were more scoring opportunities without the opposing goalkeepers. Ovechkin said, “It’s fun to play with Sidney even though Crosby is on the same team. This is a special moment,” he said.
