Rumor: Alex Kovalev Heading To KHL?

After 18 seasons in the NHL as a supremely talented offensive player who was often frustrating for not playing to his talent level, TSN is reporting that Alex Kovalev will leave for the KHL.  The deal will see Kovalev play with Atlant Mytishchi where he will hope to show there is still something left in the tank after a 16 goal, 18 assist campaign. 

For his career Kovalev has scored 428 goals, tallied 596 assists for a total of 1,024 points in his 18 seasons.
