UPDATE: According to Dmitry Chesnokov, we'll have to wait until Monday -- at least -- for the official announcement of a contract between Ilya Kovalchuk and SKA Saint Petersburg -- but apparently it's been in the works for quite some time. Kovalchuk's mother says the arrangement was essentially hammered out months ago (SKA denies a contract was signed at that point).
