Kovalchuk trying reeeaaalllly hard to make a kilt look cool. Like, contract year hard.

Looovin the photo, seriously.

Prefer this one, though... and no, I'm not a puck bunny. I'd like to see how they got Kovy to do this, because the man is super duper shy.

Haha, that photo was under consideration as well but I dug the "Blue Steel" nature of the chosen pick. So it got the nod.

If I knew he was going to wear something as ridiculous as that I would've passed on him.
