After five years back home in Russia Aaron Ekblad Jersey , Ilya Kovalchuk is ready to resume his Stanley Cup chase with the Los Angeles Kings.The high-scoring forward agreed to a three-year, $18.75 million deal with the Kings on Saturday, choosing Los Angeles over several interested teams for his return to the NHL.The 35-year-old Kovalchuk scored 816 points in 816 career games for the Atlanta Thrashers and the New Jersey Devils before leaving North America in 2013 for the Kontinental Hockey League’s SKA St. Petersburg. He led the KHL in scoring last season, and he was the MVP of the Olympic tournament in Pyeongchang while propelling the ”Olympic Athletes from Russia” to a gold medal.”He gives us an added element of skill and scoring, along with a desire to win,” Kings general manager Rob Blake said.Boston and San Jose were among the suitors for Kovalchuk, but the Kings made a top-dollar offer to add him to a lineup that could use another dependable goal-scorer. Kovalchuk is likely to be particularly important on the power play for the Kings Aleksander Barkov Jersey , who ranked in the middle of the NHL standings in most team scoring categories.Kovalchuk was the first Russian to be the No. 1 pick in the NHL draft when Atlanta chose him in 2001. He quickly became one of the NHL’s most consistent scorers with his wicked shot and hockey sense. He spent nearly eight years with the Thrashers and 3 seasons with the Devils, who acquired him in a trade in February 2010.Kovalchuk will forever be the top scorer in the history of the Thrashers, who moved to Winnipeg one season after trading him to New Jersey. He shared the Rocket Richard Trophy as the NHL’s top goal-scorer in 2004 with Rick Nash and Jarome Iginla, yet his 41 goals that season were only the fifth-best total during a career in which he posted a pair of 52-goal seasons for the Thrashers.Kovalchuk had little playoff success in his NHL career until 2012, when he reached the Stanley Cup Final with the Devils after leading the Eastern Conference playoffs in scoring. New Jersey lost the Final in six games to the Kings, with Kovalchuk scoring only one empty-net goal in the series.The Kings and Kovalchuk have had mutual interest for many years. Los Angeles pursued him in free agency in 2010 before Kovalchuk got a massive contract to stay with the Devils.Just three seasons into a 15-year, $100 million contract with New Jersey Evgenii Dadonov Jersey Kids , Kovalchuk abruptly left the NHL for St. Petersburg amid complaints about North American taxes and the distance from his family. Kovalchuk and his wife have four children.He won two KHL championships with St. Petersburg, and he scored 141 points in 113 games over the past two seasons against the KHL’s lesser competition. Kovalchuk became a five-time Olympian in February, when he scored five goals in six games for the Russians in the watered-down Pyeongchang tournament, which included no current NHL players.— ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Not many players have a weekend like the one Jakob Silfverberg just experienced.A day after signing a $26.5 million, five-year extension, the Anaheim right winger had a goal and an assist to help the Ducks beat the Colorado Avalanche 2-1 on Sunday to snap a five-game losing streak.It was Silfverberg’s third multi-point game this season. He leads the team in goals with 17 and is tied for fourth in points (26). His goal at 3:17 of the first period http://www.officialhockeypanthersshop.com/authentic-adidas-james-reimer-jersey , where he went top shelf with a wrist shot near the right faceoff circle, also made him the ninth player to score 100 goals with Anaheim.“It was nice to see that one go in and obviously nice to get the lead for once,” Silfverberg said. “Getting rewarded with the win is big, especially at times like this when we haven’t gotten the results we wanted.”Cam Fowler also had a goal and John Gibson made 25 saves for his first victory since Jan. 19. Gibson had lost five straight and also missed nine games because of a concussion and having his wisdom teeth pulled.It is the 24th time this season that Gibson has allowed two goals or less.Derick Brassard scored for Colorado and Philipp Grubauer stopped 21 shots. The Avalanche have dropped three of their last four after winning four straight.It is only Anaheim’s third win in its last 13 at home as it is in danger of missing the playoffs for the first time since 2012. Overall, the Ducks are 4-6 since general manager Bob Murray fired Randy Carlyle as coach and took over.“It’s nice for us to get one, grind it out in the third and save the win,” assistant coach Mark Morrison said. “That’s even more important for us Youth Jamie McGinn Jersey , how we were able to keep the 2-1 lead in the third.”The Avalanche missed an opportunity to pick up valuable points as they are fighting for a Western Conference playoff spot. Colorado trails Minnesota by two points for the final playoff spot with 16 games remaining.“I don’t know what we’re waiting for. We should be the desperate hockey team right now,” Colorado coach Jared Bednar said. “We’re the ones that are trying to fight to get into the playoffs, we’re sitting there right in the bubble and you got to come out like you mean it. We didn’t tonight and we didn’t on Friday (in a loss at San Jose).”Fowler added to the lead at 10:26 of the second with a slap shot from the point on a power play that deflected off the stick of Avalanche forward Matt Calvert. Fowler’s fourth goal of the season also marked the first time in six games that the Ducks scored on the power play.“Everyone knows where we’re at in the standings. There was a lot that went on in the beginning part of the season and we lost our identity a little bit,” Fowler said. “We’re very focused on simplifying things now.”Brassard scored at 4:17 of the third on a one-timer from the right faceoff circle off a pass from Carl Soderberg. It was Brassard’s 12th of the season and second since being acquired from Florida on Feb. 25.NOTES: Colorado’s Ian Cole was assessed a game misconduct midway through the second period for kneeing Devin Shore. Morrison said Shore — who did not return to the game — would have an MRI on his left knee Monday but that he was walking around the locker room after the game. … It is Fowler’s 13th game-winning goal, which ties him with Scott Niedermayer for the franchise lead among defensemen.UP NEXTAvalanche: Host Detroit on Tuesday night.Ducks: At Arizona on Tuesday night.
