Your (sad) links for today:

Devils Links

Ilya Kovalchuk's days as a New Jersey Devil are over. He has retired from the NHL. [Fire and Ice] [Star-Ledger]

Devils beat writer Tom Gulitti has a transcript of Lou's press call and has a few answers on the Kovalchuk announcement. [Fire and Ice]

Kovalchuk is reportedly set to join SKA St. Petersburg of the KHL, where he played during the NHL lockout. He will likely be paid quite a bit of money there. [Puck Daddy]

Mark Zidlicky has re-signed with the Devils on a one-year, $3 million contract. [Fire and Ice] [Star-Ledger]

Hockey Links

Boston is hoping it's going to be Tuukka Time for quite awhile. They have signed Tuukka Rask to an eight-year, $56 million contract. [Eye on Hockey]

The Blues traded David Perron to the Edmonton Oilers for Magnus Paajarvi and a draft pick. [Puck Daddy]

Feel free to discuss these and any other hockey-related stories in the comments below. Remember: You may be angry that #17 is gone. I am too. Keep it civil. Keep it clean.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this article said that Boston gave Tuukka Rask an eighty-year contract. While that's what it may feel like to Bruins fans in the latter years of this contract, it is untrue. He was given an eight-year contract. Kudos to Twitter user Spencer for catching my error.
