Nicklas Backstrom says he does not talk politics with Alex Ovechkin, calls Russia’s war in Ukraine ‘terrible’
In any line of work, when you’re part of a big team, many workers choose to focus on what unites a group instead of what could potentially divide it to be as productive and happy as possible. This also seems to be the case inside the locker room of the Washington Capitals.
While speaking with Expressen’s Magnus Nyström, Nicklas Backstrom was asked about Russia’s war in Ukraine and if it’s had an effect on his relationship with Alex Ovechkin.
Backstrom says they avoid the topic altogether.
