In an interview with Sovietsky Sport’s Pavel Lysenkov, former Red Wing star Pavel Datsyuk weighed in on whether he thought NHL players might make it to the Olympics this winter in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
“On one hand, I don’t really want to get into what who they might let go [to the Olympics]. It’s not for me to say,” Datsyuk said. “On the other, we just have to wait a bit and everything will be clear. I repeat, there is a chance, and the door still isn’t closed. I think the sides can still agree, but that will happen closer to New Year’s.”
Here are his full remarks.
