Kovalev Having Fun

from Dave Stubbs at Habs Inside/Out,

Now, 55 games into this season, Kovalev is the powerful locomotive pulling the Canadiens Express, the creative right-wing on one of the league’s premier lines with centreman Tomas Plekanec and left-wing Andrei Kostitsyn.

It’s been a long time since the 16-year NHL veteran has had this much fun, showcasing his prodigious, highlight-reel talent with a mature completeness of game that sees Carbonneau use him in every situation. And he’s on pace to enjoy a career season in a few statistical categories.

KK friend Roman of eNHL.cz pointed me to a video of Kovalev talking about being the first hockey player in space.  The first minute or so of the video is just that, video with no sound, but after that, we hear Kovalev speak about his intentions to go into space.

You can watch the original version of the video, with Kovalev speaking in English about his plans.

The video was aired on TV Nova, with Roman doing the voice-over in the Czech language.
