NHL All-Star Game was called a clown 01/05/2024, 19:43

Vladimir Plyushchev, the former head coach of the Russian national team, explained Washington Capitals captain Alexander Ovechkin’s lack of invitation to the National Hockey League (NHL) All-Star Game as “political problems”. He shared his opinion with him “Match TV”.

“He deserved everything a long time ago and proved everything to everyone, the absence of meeting is connected with behind-the-scenes issues and political issues, nothing else. Ovechkin must choose who to invite to these games and who not to invite. I don’t think he cares. “This is a certain kind of show, obviously clowning, and not every self-respecting person will participate in clowning,” said the expert.

Star Weekend will take place in Toronto from February 1-3. The league selected one hockey player from each of the 32 clubs. According to the results of the fan vote, which will be held until January 11, 12 more players will be selected, including four goalkeepers and eight outfield players.

Canadian forward Tom Wilson was selected from Washington. Russian goalkeeper Igor Shesterkin (New York Rangers) and forwards Kirill Kaprizov (Minnesota Wild) and Nikita Kucherov (Tampa Bay Lightning) will attend the event.

Ovechkin is second on the NHL’s all-time leading scorers list with 830 goals, 64 behind Wayne Gretzky (894).

Previously in the name plus Ovechkin not participating in the NHL All-Star Game.
