NHLPA Statement Regarding Kovalchuk
The National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) released the following statement today regarding the rejection of Ilya Kovalchuk’s contract with the New Jersey Devils by the National Hockey League (NHL):
“The NHLPA is currently analyzing the basis upon which the NHL rejected the contract between the New Jersey Devils and Ilya Kovalchuk. We are evaluating the options available to us under the terms established in the CBA. The NHLPA will have no further comment at this time.” – Jonathan Weatherdon, NHLPA Spokesperson
Nothing groundbreaking in the statement, and I wouldn’t expect their to be anything. We’ll have to wait for more development on the contract.
