Alex Ovechkin understands that he won't be playing in the 2018 Winter Olympics.
"I said every time I was asked since last Olympics that nobody is going to tell me I can't play because my country was going to be allowed to ask me," Ovechkin said. "Now the IIHF and NHL say my country is not allowed to ask anybody in the NHL to play and there is nothing to talk about anymore. NHL players in the Olympics is good for hockey and good for Olympics. It sucks that will we not be there to play!!" Ovechkin isn't the only player disappointed that he won't be able to represent his country, but at least this statement provides some closure on the situation because for a time it seemed like he might go no matter the consequences.
