I think this explains the Kovy KHL situation best

Recommended Posts

There was, according to Kovalchuk, never any question about that. Any comments attributed to him in which he claimed he wanted to stay in the KHL rather than returning to the NHL were lost in translation.

“I have a contract here and in the KHL they have a rule that as soon as the lockout ends we have to go back,” Kovalchuk explained. “Nobody has a choice. There wasn’t a doubt in my mind I was going to come back.”

And those rumors than Russian presudent Vladimir Putin was willing to help find the money to keep Kovalchuk in the KHL?

“No, that’s not true. I’m sure he’s got some other stuff to take care of,” he said with a laugh. “I had a great time there, we had a good team but I have a contract here. I’m happy I’m back. I’m happy we’re all back because I think it’s going to be an exciting season.”
