Kovalchuk Driven To Succeed

from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,

Kovalchuk credits his father for handing down an intense, competitive drive, a drive Thrashers opponents have seen up close over the past two weeks.

It’s a competitive hunger that former teammate Dany Heatley got to know well in Atlanta, and saw again recently in Ottawa.

“It all goes back to hockey,” said Heatley, who still keeps in close touch with Kovalchuk. “How hungry he is to score. ... You can see that in games, his competitiveness. What I find is he’s like that in practice, scrimmages, a two-on-one drill — he wants to score. He’s hungry to score. He wants to win.”
