NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly was asked what the NHL's response would be if Alex Ovechkin decided to play in the Olympics against the league's wishes.
"I don’t have a league reaction to that," Daly said. "If that became a prevailing view of a group of players, or a significant group of players, I might have a different view. But at this point it’s a single superstar player who will have a contract with one of clubs, and the club will handle that within its own discretion." This is all hypothetical right now of course because the NHL hasn't reached a decision on the Olympics yet. However, Ovechkin did suggest that he would play in the 2018 Winter Games even if the NHL refused to participate. Sep 28 - 6:06 AM
