Here's what the hit looked like as Germany's Marcus Kink stepped up to hit Ovechkin with the Russian team ahead 1-0 in what was honestly a meaningless game in the standings.
Thankfully, it appears Ovechkin will be ok. He probably won't play in the next game or two, but he was spotted limping at the hotel without crutches. My guess? Probably a bad charley horse based on that hit. That would cause the leg to be virtually useless in the moments after suffering the charley horse, but he should be alright in the long-term.
Russia finished as the top team in Group B with 18 points. They went 6-0 in the round-robin, allowing just six goals while putting 29 behind opposition goalies. The Russians are dangerous in the tournament, but they could use Ovechkin down the stretch. We'll have to see if he can return to the lineup, but my guess is that he'll make sure that leg is ready for the NHL season before rushing back to the Russian lineup.
Rest easy, Russia. Your star sniper will be back... eventually.
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
