  • Daly asked about Ovechkin's Olympics stance
    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.

    Advice: "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. Today, 3:06 am
