Leonsis Will Allow Ovechkin To Play In The Olympics

from Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider at the Washington Post,

The Capitals will allow Alex Ovechkin to take part in the 2014 Sochi Olympics, regardless of whether the NHL permits all of its players to participate in the games, owner Ted Leonsis said Thursday.

Ovechkin, who on Wednesday was named a torchbearer for the Sochi games, has said multiple times that he intends to play in his home country. Leonsis doesn’t intend to stand in the star winger’s way.

Leonsis comes off looking like a buffoon more often than he should, but it’s a mentality like this that makes me glad he’s an owner.
