  • Kings' Ilya Kovalchuk: Not making trip

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/25/19) Kovalchuk (coach's decision) isn't with the team on a three-game Western Canada road trip that begins Monday in Calgary, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

    Kovalchuk is staying behind to work with skill and development staff, as he would be unable to do so on the road trip due to a lack of practice days. Assuming he doesn't join the team Tuesday in Edmonton or Thursday in Vancouver, Kovalchuk's next chance to suit up should come in Saturday's home tilt against the Blackhawks.

    Kings' Ilya Kovalchuk: Responds to coach's decision

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/22/19) Kovalchuk has publicly voiced frustration about interim Kings coach Willie Desjardins keeping him out of the lineup for two of the past three games as a healthy scratch, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.

    Getting relegated to the press box is discouraging in its own right, but Dillman writes that Kovalchuk was especially fired up about the Kings using an extra defenseman rather than another forward with the Russian scratched against the Sharks on Thursday. "It's horrible," Kovalchuk said. "That's the worst. But (coach Willie Desjardins) didn't play young guys. He plays 7 D. That's his new strategy." The 35-year-old has posted 14 goals, 17 assists and a minus-26 rating through 60 games -- his first NHL campaign since a final go-around with the Devils in 2012-13 (and following five years in the KHL). But alas, this may be a blessing in disguise, as Kovalchuk noted he'll "find a way to get through it" and certainly seems motivated to prove to the coaching staff that he still has gas in the tank.

    Kings' Ilya Kovalchuk: Gathers helper in return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/19/19) Kovalchuk generated an assist in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Jets.

    He added two shots in the contest. The helper gives him 31 points (14 goals, 17 helpers) in 60 appearances, though he's also collected a minus-26 rating. It's likely not what many were expecting from the Russian winger after a five-year absence from the NHL.

    Kings' Ilya Kovalchuk: Returns to lineup

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/18/19) Kovalchuk (coach's decision) will play in Monday's game against Winnipeg, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Scoreless in his last five outings, Kovalchuk was a healthy scratch during Saturday's loss to the Panthers. In his first NHL season since the 2012-13 campaign, the 35-year-old has just 14 goals in 59 games this year.

    Kings' Ilya Kovalchuk: Scratched from Saturday's lineup

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/16/19) Kovalchuk (coach's decision) wasn't present for warmups ahead of Saturday's game against the Panthers, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    It appears that Kovalchuk will be a healthy scratch, with coach Willie Desjardins noting Friday that he wants to shake things up and find more playing time for Jonny Bordzinski. It's been a tough debut season for Kovalchuk, as he's stacked only 14 goals and 16 assists against a minus-25 rating over 59 games.
