The NHL has not decided whether to let its players participate in the Olympics beyond the Sochi Games, making it possible they will not be on the ice in South Korea in 2018.

Sweden's Daniel Alfredsson has competed in each of the last four Olympics with players from the league. He is looking forward to doing it for a fifth and probably final time next month.

The 41-year-old forward says it would be "bad" for the NHL to take the unique experience away from its players.

League officials, though, are not sure freezing their league for two-plus weeks in the middle of the season is good for business, especially when the Olympics are not in North America.
