Russia just defeated Germany, now we wait for news on Ovechkin.

It’s a joke that these guys are over there. He’s got $70M left on his contract with Washington and he already played in the Olympics. Just a bunch of nonsense, these silly tournaments. All these players want the best of all worlds. The owners should say enough’s enough.

Alex Ovechkin is back in the team hotel. Walking on his own, no crutches, but limping. Team doctor says it’s “better than expected”

Here is a short YouTube video of Ovechkin returning to the hotel from the hospital.

The injury appears not to be as serious as many thought.
