Marc-Edouard Vlasic is hoping NHL players get to participate in the 2018 Olympics.
Vlasic also doesn't like using the condensed schedule argument against the NHL agreeing to the Winter Games. "Condensed schedule, we had it this year because of the World Cup. So, it’s OK for the World Cup and not the Olympics?" Vlasic asked. "We’re hockey players that play in the NHL, but as the best athletes [we] should have the right to go to the Olympics. I was fortunate enough to experience it once, and would love to go again. If guys that haven’t experienced it get a chance to go, they should. We should. Hopefully, they reach an agreement." Right now it seems like the NHL will break its run of allowing its players to participate in the Olympics, but no decision has been made yet. Feb 9 - 10:52 AM
