Ray Shero spoke to the media and said he plans to speak to Ilya Kovalchuk's agent soon to gauge the Russian winger's interest in returning to the NHL.
What a coup that would be for the Devils if they could bring Kovalchuk back to the NHL. Hall and Kovalchuk would be quite the tandem on the first line and on the power play. Kovalchuk is scheduled to undergo a knee procedure, which is ruling him out of the World Hockey Championships. Shero also added that Kovalchuk could sign with any NHL franchise as long as every NHL team agrees. We wouldn't bet on the Devils relinquishing their rights to the talented Russian. It might be Devils or nothing for Kovalchuk if he chooses to return. This saga will probably drag on into the summer. Apr 29 - 6:38 PM
