This is according to Sovssports, a Russian sports website.
What’s more, the same website has stated that Kings left winger, Alexander Frolov has also received an offer though the details of that are not yet known.
The offer to Kovalchuk is interesting because while it is the same dollar figure as that by the Thrashers, the KHL offer is tax free. That is the equivalent of the Thrashers having made about a $15M dollar per year offer.
Regarding Frolov, I am searching to see if I can track down the number allegedly offered. Stay tuned.
