LA Kings inform Ilya Kovalchuk he's done with the team

Ilya Kovalchuk has been taken out of the LA Kings lineup and that's not going to change anytime soon. The Kings have informed the veteran he won't be playing for the foreseeable future, although he is welcome to practice with the club, if he chooses.


Surprising turn of events on the west coast, as Kovalchuk's bonus is paid on December 15th. The Kings feel they currently have better options, and they want the league to know, they have a month to bring their best offer to the table.


What NHL team lands the one-time superstar sniper? Or perhaps the Kings have now pushed Kovalchuk to decide to go back home to Russia. Seems possible.
