HF mentions that Kovacs will play another year in Sweden
Although Kovacs informed the Rangers that he will return to Sweden for the 2015-16 season, he was recently drafted by the North Bay Battalion in the CHL Import Draft.
Shame he was drafted by North Bay. Not exactly a posh destination for OHL players.
Kovacs off to a good start. 3 goals, 2 assists in 7 games played. Also has 18 PIMs.
Having a really good year. Nice goal yesterday.
Buchnevich was not the only #NYR prospect scoring yesterday. Robin Kovács netted his 19th goal of the year.
The only thing to note is that he doesn't really have 19 goals. That includes shootout game winning goals. It's a weird wrinkle. I believe when I last checked he had 12/13 "regular" goals. Nothing to sneer at obviously but optically different than wow this guy is a 20-goal scorer.
He's got potential to be a real nice fit in time. Vision is good and his hands are nice too.
20th goal of the season
He has 16 goals, two on penalty shots, and four that have come via shootout winner.
Looks like they're interested in bringing him over already:
