Ilya Kovalchuk hopes the 2019-20 season resumes, so that he can have a chance to compete for the Stanley Cup.
"It's not just because [Ovechkin's] my buddy, but it's a great chance to win something special," Kovalchuk said. "I think that group of guys, they're ready. They're experienced, they're healthy, they're big, strong." He was acquired by Washington from Montreal prior to the trade deadline after having his contract terminated by Los Angeles. Kovalchuk had one goal and three assists in seven outings for the Capitals prior to the pause of the 2019-20 campaign. He can become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the year and he plans to continue playing. Apr 19 1:37 pm (EST)
