"The Carolina Hurricanes supported Russian forward Alexander Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals.

The forward was forced to fly to Moscow because of his father's illness.

"We express our support on behalf of the club. There is nothing more important than those we love. We wish Alexander and his family all the best," Carolina said in a statement.

Washington doesn't expect Ovechkin to return this week.
