  • Kings' Ilya Kovalchuk: Likely ascending to top line

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/5/19) Kovalchuk is slated to rejoin the top line alongside Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown on Saturday against the Sharks, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

    Saturday marks the first time since the first six games of the season that Kovalchuk will work with Kopitar. The veteran winger tallied six points over that span, but he's managed just 13 in the other 26 games he's played in this season. The two will look to rekindle the early season magic Saturday, though it's unclear if this will be a permanent move.

    Kings' Ilya Kovalchuk: Hits 10 assists

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/24/18) Kovalchuk set up an Alex Iafallo goal in the second period during a 4-3 win over Vegas on Sunday in overtime.

    Kovalchuk hasn't set the world on fire in his return to the NHL, but he's been a decent player and one of the few legitimate options the Kings have had on offense. His value could rise if he looks like his pre-KHL self now that he's back from his ankle injury, but at the moment, he's only worth starting in deeper leagues.

    Kings' Ilya Kovalchuk: Returns from IR with bang

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/22/18) Kovalchuk scored two goals, including the overtime winner, in Saturday's 3-2 victory over the Sharks.

    After missing 10 games with an ankle injury, Kovalchuk seemed determined to make up for the lost time -- his first goal, a power-play marker, opened the scoring inside the first five minutes of the first period. The veteran winger now has seven goals and 16 points through 26 games in his return to the NHL, and his consistent time with the man advantage gives him a solid fantasy floor despite the fact that he sees less overall ice time at even strength.

    Kings' Ilya Kovalchuk: Officially activated Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/22/18) Kovalchuk (ankle) has been activated from injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site. According to Kings coach Willie Desjardins in a report by Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times, the power forward will not face a minutes restriction against the Sharks on Saturday.

    On Wednesday, Kovalchuk received the green light from the bench boss to return for this game, which will be the 4,000th regular-season contest for the Kings in the history of the franchise. While it's great that Kovalchuk isn't expected to be confined by a minutes cap, that doesn't change the fact that Los Angeles ranks dead last in scoring at 2.23 goals per game.

    Kings' Ilya Kovalchuk: 'Good to go' for Saturday's game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/19/18) Kovalchuk (ankle) is expected to return Saturday against host San Jose, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.

    While Kings coach Willie Desjardins said Kovalchuck is "good to go," the fact remains that the brawny winger is still on injured reserve. An activation appears imminent in this case, but the Russian hasn't been too appealing of a fantasy option since he plays for a team that ranks 31st in the league in scoring at 2.23 goals per game.
