News

Devils GM Ray Shero indicated Monday that Kovalchuk (knee) would like to return to the NHL next season, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

Impact

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.
