Kovalchuk as a Devil

Ilya Kovalchuk's Devils jerseySomebody was hard at work this morning customizing a New Jersey Devils sweater at the NHL Store in New York with Ilya Kovalchuk's name and No. 17.

If you were watching NHL Live this afternoon on NHL Network you got a sneak peek at the new red jersey there on display. But in case you didn't, I have it here for you.

Kovalchuk takes the ice for the first time as a Devil tonight as his new team hosts the Maple Leafs — another team with a handful of brand new players.
