According to TSN's Bob McKenzie, the Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired forward Alexei Kovalev from the Ottawa Senators. Kovalev, 38, has 1,017 points in 1,282 career games.
Fantasy Impact: Back in his prime, Kovalev's best seasons were with the Penguins. Now far past his prime, he has bitterly taken on a diminished role in Ottawa. The Senators are in rebuild mode and have been dumping everything of value they have. It was only a matter of time before Kovalev was going to go.
