Thursday September 11th, 2014

Washington Capitals right wing Alex Ovechkin said the knee injury he sustained at the World Championships in May is now healed, according to the Washington Times.

Ovechkin said the injury took about two months to heal, but everything is now feeling fine and he's "100 percent healthy." 

"My knee doesn’t bother me, and last probably month, month and a half, do some workouts and get in shape," Ovechkin said.

Penguins center Sidney Crosby says he's fully healthy

Ovechkin injured his knee during the preliminary round of Worlds while playing for Russia. After missing a game, he returned for the playoffs. 

The 28-year-old led the NHL with 51 goals last season and had 79 points.
