Here was Alexander Frolov’s reaction, this morning, to not being selected to Russia’s Olympic team…
Question: Did anyone with the Russian team get in touch with you?
FROLOV: “I didn’t really hear anything.”
Question: A lot of disappointment there?
FROLOV: “Yeah, of course it’s disappointing, but it is what it is. There’s nothing I can do about it right now.”
Question: Were you in communication with them at all, or were you just waiting for the list to come out?
FROLOV: “I was waiting for the list to come out. I talked to them maybe a couple months ago, and nothing really after.”
Question: They can still make changes to the roster. Can you use that as motivation at all?
FROLOV: “Any player wants to play in the Olympics. I’ve got to do my best and we’ll see what happens.”
