Agent: Kovalchuk to sign today

07.19.2010 / 11:50 a.m. ET

New Jersey got its man after all.

After a twist-filled script that lasted the better part of three weeks, Ilya Kovalchuk wrapped up hockey's version of a summer blockbuster by signing a surprising deal with the New Jersey Devils on Monday.

The deal was announced by the team's Twitter feed at 11:45 a.m.

Kovalchuk was the biggest unrestricted free agent on the market this summer, and he was heavily courted by several teams before the Kings and the New Jersey Devils took center stage. Kovalchuk finished the 2009-10 season with the Devils after arriving in a block-buster deal at this year's trade deadline.

But, in the end, New Jersey was able to outlast the Los Angeles Kings, who were believed to be the frontrunner after making several offers and hosting the Russian star in a recruiting visit last week.

No no no, I'm not buying ANYTHING until either grossman announces it or the Kings say otherwise.
