SKA St. Petersburg’s president Alexander Medvedev declared that his team is interested in signing team Russia’s superstar Ilya Kovalchuk, whose contract with the Atlanta Thrashers will run out at the end of this season.
“Yes, Kovalchuk is really in the short list of players we are interested in”, said Medvedev in an interview to SportsDaily.ru
In spite of his healthy economical situation, the Gazprom tycoon will have hard time in getting Kovalchuk’s signature under a contract, especially considering that it’s rumored that he has been offered 100 million dollars for his next contract.
The winner of two World Championships and one Maurice Richard trophy still hasn’t decided on his future, most likely waiting for the evidence that Atlanta became the winning team he’s asking for in order to remain into the A-town.
