Ilya Kovalchuk reportedly said on Russian television that he thinks this will be his final season with the KHL's St. Petersburg SKA.
Kovalchuk expressed a desire to return to the NHL for the 2018-19 campaign. He explored the idea of playing in the NHL next season, but it would have been complicated because the Devils still control his rights, which would have made a sign-and-trade necessary. Next summer he'll be an unrestricted free agent in the NHL so that obstacle won't exist. Additionally, by staying in the KHL for one more season he can then play in the Olympics where Russia will be a heavy favorite to win gold given that NHL players won't be able to participate.
