Kovalev to return this week

  • RDS is reporting that badly missed sniper Alex Kovalev is set to make a return from knee surgery Thursday or Saturday of this week. Kovalev is known to be a quick healer but this seems very early. Should Kovalev start Thursday he will have missed only 11 games after being cut open and scoped.

    This is great news for the Canadiens as long as he is 100% and doesn’t risk further injury.

  1. Scoping can be a fairly quick healing process depending on what they had to do when they were in there.

    I just had my knee scoped at the start of October though, and I’m certainly not recovered enough to play NHL calibre hockey :) It sounds like mine was a little more serious than Alex’s though.

    Boy do we need him back!
