CALGARY, Alberta — The NHL’s top player didn’t shy away Sunday when asked about Russia’s anti-gay law being adopted for the Olympics in February.

Team Canada superstar Sidney Crosby isn’t on board with the Russian government’s stance, underlining his support of gay athletes and their right to play.

“For me growing up in Canada, my view has always been that way,” Crosby said during a news conference Sunday to kick off Canada’s Olympic camp. “I think that everyone has an equal right to play and I think we’ve been supportive of that. With the Olympics and the controversy around that I think those decisions and those laws aren’t necessarily something that I agree with personally … their laws and their views.”
