The legendary hockey player told reporters what he thinks about continuing his sports career.

In particular, he admitted that he wants to play his last matches before retiring from sports in his homeland. However, this is not about the near future. For the time being, Ovechkin simply cannot sign a contract with one of the Russian clubs. The fact is that under the terms of the agreements already reached, he must play for the Washington Capitals for another 4 years. Early retirement from the NHL threatens him with large fines.

“I have four more years of the contract left, and then we’ll see. But, of course, I would like to play my last matches here in Moscow, ”the legendary athlete admitted.

It is curious that despite the difficult political situation in the world, Ovechkin’s colleagues on the American team treat him very well. Alexander stressed that he does not feel any pressure from American society.

Now the hockey player is in Russia, where he came on vacation with his wife and children. In a few days, he will take part in a charity gala match in support of the Paralympic athletes.
