NEWARK, N.J. -- Superstar forward llya Kovalchuk has to play for the New Jersey Devils once the NHL lockout is officially lifted.

Deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Tuesday that the KHL reaffirmed its intention to honour an agreement with the NHL concerning contracts.

"They would not permit a player who is under a valid and binding NHL SPC (to) continue to play in the KHL once the lockout is officially lifted," Daly said in an email to The Associated Press. "They have confirmed their intention to honour this agreement to us."

There has been some intrigue this week whether Kovalchuk would leave SKA St. Petersburg to return to the Devils. Some reports in Russia said he was concerned that he would make less money playing in a lockout-shortened NHL season.
