Earlier this afternoon, Puck Daddy's Dmitry Chesnokov published an interview in which injured Capitals winger Alex Ovechkin was quoted as saying that he "will miss 4-5 weeks."

Per a team spokesman, however, "The Washington Capitals dispute the validity of this report."

Stay tuned.

Update (9/9, 1:15 PM): Per @cmasisak 22, "Ovechkin says he feels better today and only hopes to be out a week. He says he was joking Saturday."
