Russian superstar Ilya Kovalchuk will be back with the New Jersey Devils as he will re-sign with the team. The contract’s details will be released during a conference the team will host on Tuesday afternoon.
Kovalchuk is a recent addition by the Devils as they added him to their lineup during the 2010 NHL trade deadline. But the move didn’t boost the Devils like expected as they were defeated by the Philadelphia Flyers during the playoffs’ first round.
During this year’s free agency Ilya Kovalchuk was reported to have refused offers from the Los Angeles Kings, the Atlanta Thrashers and SKA St. Petersburg of the KHL.
