Kovalchuk\'s first day with the Devils
10:19 am - Devils have hit the ice for morning skate. Zach, Travis, Pando, Pelley, Marty, Dean, Leblond, Peters. Anssi Salmela has returned after the deal that shipped him to Atlanta last March.

10:20 am - Langenbrunner, Mottau, Yann Danis. Jacques Lemaire. Andy Greene.

10:22 am - White, Salvador, Patrik, Zharkov, Fraser.

10:24 am - Kovalchuk will be among the last players on the ice. Nice way to make an entrance.

10:25 am - No. 17 is on the ice, followed Rolston, just ahead of Niedermayer.

10:26 am - Players broken up into lines, doing a puck possession drill. Kovalchuk working with Zubrus and Zharkov.

10:32 am - Kovy wearing his Atlanta gloves. No Devils gear just yet. Arrived at the arena just after 9 a.m. this morning.

10:33 am - Just got some help from Zajac on the current drill. Players taking a pass off the boards at center, skating in for a shot on goal.

10:34 am - Players stretching at center. Kovy next to Marty and Leblond.

10:36 am - Line of Parise, Zajac, Rolston on a drill. Next, Kovy with Zubrus centering and Langenbrunner on the right side.

10:37 am - Line of Pandolfo, Niedermayer, Zharkov.

10:38 am - Line of McAmmond centering Peters and Leblond.

10:39 am - Rolston snaps a shot over Marty's left shoulder. Looks like he'll be on the top line tonight. 

10:43 am - Greene working on shots drills with the defense corps. He missed practice yesterday to rest.

10:45 am - Kovy seen chatting with Zharkov, a fellow Russian.

10:47 am - Kovy snaps a shot underneath glove of Danis. Tremendous release.

10:48 am - Players beginning to file off the ice. Kovy set to have his own press conference after the skate. Heavy media turnout this morning anyway with Toronto in town, but Kovy deal adds to it.
