Lamoriello statement on Kovalchuk signing
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."

Quote of the Day

I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
