The 40-year-old forward appeared to be just as loose and relaxed as the players around him on the eve of the Olympic tournament. He was clearly enjoying himself on the ice during Monday’s practice at Canada Hockey Place and was cracking jokes afterwards.
“I’m just delighted to be around those guys and have fun,” said Fedorov. “If you want to be part of the group, you have to goof off too sometimes.”
Fedorov is five years older than anyone else on the Russian team. He’s back for his third Games and is painfully aware that his country hasn’t won Olympic gold since 1992, but doesn’t believe it’s much of a distraction for the young stars.
“I don’t think anybody on the team thinks about when we won last time Olympics and stuff because we’re having too much fun,” said Fedorov.
