New Jersey Devils President and General Manager Lou Lamoriello issued the following statement Wednesday in response to the National Hockey League's rejection of the team's contract with Ilya Kovalchuk:

"We are extremely disappointed that the NHL has decided to reject the contract of Ilya
Kovalchuk. The contract complies with the terms of the Collective Bargaining
Agreement. We will have no further comment until the process outlined in the CBA is
complete."

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
