  • Ilya Kovalchuk: Will remain in KHL

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/4/17) Kovalchuk will remain in the KHL for the 2017-18 season, Larry Brooks of The New York Post reports.

    Kovalchuk has tempted us with a return to the NHL for a couple years now, but another season will pass without that coming to fruition. He'll be eligible for a return as an unrestricted free agent on July 1, 2018, at which point he'll be 35 years old.

    Ilya Kovalchuk: Eyeing return to NHL

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/9/17) Devils GM Ray Shero indicated Monday that Kovalchuk (knee) would like to return to the NHL next season, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

    Kovalchuk won't be allowed to sign with a club until July 1, but it appears the Devils are willing to do a sign-and-trade deal should a team make an intriguing offer for the 34-year-old. There will likely be a long list of potential suitors for the veteran, as his play hasn't dropped off in recent seasons. In fact, the 2001 first overall pick recorded 78 points (32 goals, 46 assists) over 60 games with St. Petersburg of the KHL in 2016-17. Talks about a potential landing spot will likely heat up as July nears.

    Ilya Kovalchuk: Bypassing Worlds, will have knee surgery

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/29/17) Kovalchuk, who's been contemplating a return to the NHL, backed out of the IIHF World Championships in order to undergo surgery on his knee, Szymon Szemberg, managing director of the Euro Hockey Challenge, reports.

    Kovalchuk, 34, is an outstanding talent who may be best known for his signing a 17-year, $102 million contract with the Devils in July of 2010, only for the huge deal to be nullified by a league arbitrator and ultimately "settling" with the NHLPA on a still-unprecedented 15-year, $100 million signing a few months later. Kovalchuk would break free from the NHL in July in 2013, spending the past four seasons with St. Petersburg SKA of the KHL, fashioning 78 points (32 goals, 46 assists) in 60 games during the regular season of 2016-17. It remains to be seen if his surgery will have any kind of impact on his mulling over a return to North American hockey.

    Ilya Kovalchuk: NHL return possible?

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/29/16) Kovalchuk, who was recently stripped of his captaincy and benched in the KHL, has had some preliminary discussions about a possible return to the NHL, Aivis Kalnins of One Puck Short reports.

    The Devils still own Kovy's rights even after his "retirement" from the NHL, so it remains unclear what a potential return might shape up like for the 32-year-old winger, a four-time 80-point man on North American ice. For now, news of his status is worth monitoring in deep keeper formats, but no rash actions need to be taken by fantasy owners.
