Ilya Kovalchuk is currently playing in SKA St. Petersburg's game against Salavat Yulaev.
His KHL club is up 4-2 in the third period and he presently has one assist. Pavel Datsyuk is still in Russia as well, but he isn't expected to play against Metallurg Magnitogorsk later this morning. Kovalchuk also played Tuesday when Datsyuk sat out his game with CSKA Moscow. It's unfair to read too much into that aspect of the situation, but Datsyuk has already confirmed that he will return to Detroit after the KHL All-Star Game on Sunday while Kovalchuk has not made any promises yet.
