Kovalev A Quick Healer

from Canada.com,
Canadiens star Alex Kovalev was trying out two new composite sticks yesterday, each made of steel with a rubber tip, each tucked under an armpit. "I'm not a very big fan of these things," Kovalev said of his crutches, having hobbled into a media mob awaiting him at his dressing-room stall. "I'd rather have just one good stick - the one I've played with all my life." But the reality is that the crafty Russian, author of seven goals and 12 assists in his 18 games, won't have a hockey stick in his hands any time soon. He's on the mend from last Wednesday's arthroscopic surgery to repair a right knee that's been his Achilles heel since he injured it on a stationary bike during training camp.
