NHL Rumors: Ilya Kovalchuk, Chris Kreider, and Justin Williams

TSN: Bob McKenzie said that Ilya Kovalchuk‘s camp will be looking for a deal around the league minimum. The Los Angeles Kings are stuck with his salary cap hit next year no matter what.

“They cannot trade it because the contract has been mutually terminated. Remember the Detroit Red Wings traded Pavel Datsyuk’s 35-and-over deal to Arizona? They did that before he retired and shut it down. Kovalchuk’s cap hit is staying with L.A.”

Igor Eronko: Source is saying that Ilya Kovalchuk is looking to sign with a contender and is okay with signing for the league minimum.
