Kovalev A Penguin Again

The Ottawa Senators shipped veteran forward Alex Kovalev to the Pittsburgh Penguins, a club where he excelled during a previous stint. Kovalev told reporters that he was looking forward to the move and a chance to compete in the post-season once again.

"I'm excited to go to Pittsburgh and play in the playoffs again," said Kovalev.  It's been awhile."  An Olympic gold medalist with Russia in 1992, and a Stanley Cup champion with the Rangers in 1994, Kovalev has scored over 400 goals and recorded over 1000 points in his 18-year NHL career.
