The statement comes after reports that the International Ice Hockey Federation, which oversees international competitions, teamed up with the NHL to block players from defying the North American league's directive, which Ovechkin was assumed to have on his agenda.
Analysis: "The Olympics are in my blood and everybody knows how much I love my country," Ovechkin's statement read. "Ever since I was a kid and all the time I have played in the NHL, NHL players have played in the Olympic Games. We never have to make choice between our team and our country my whole career. I love the Capitals and my teammates here as much as I love my country and I know all the other NHL players feel the same for their teams."
