So with the CBA nearly buttoned up and a Memo of Understanding signed, the league released official report dates for training camps. You know, those times and dates where if a player isn’t in camp, they’re in violation of league rules? This matters for a few players, namely Ilya Kovalchuk, who is in the process of returning to the Devils from the KHL.
All players are required to report to camp before January 14th at 10:00 AM.

Okay, not a big deal. Ilya’s got a flight booked. He’ll be back in no time. Right?
Kovalchuk flying back Jan. 15. RT @renlavoierds: All players are required to report to camp before January 14th at 10:00 AM.
