Ilya Kovalchuk explained the contract with Spartak as an understatement

Olympic hockey champion Ilya Kovalchuk explained the decision to resume his career and sign a contract with Spartak. The player spoke out on the red-white YouTube channel.

According to the hockey player, he trained every day. “In 2001, I left Sokolniki, in principle, I had a good career, but I felt that I had some kind of understatement in relation to my native club,” Kovalchuk said.

The player added that he was very pleased to return to Spartak. “The club’s management is doing everything to make the team successful. I hope that I will help with my experience, so just move forward, all together,” he said.

Kovalchuk’s return to Spartak was announced on December 5 during the regular season match of the Continental Hockey League (KHL), in which the red-whites met Dynamo (8:7). It was specified that the forward will play for Spartak under number 71.

Kovalchuk played in the National Hockey League for several clubs for more than ten years. The forward’s last team was Omsk Avangard, with whom he won the Gagarin Cup. The athlete suspended his career after the 2020/2021 season. He is a student of Spartak.
