Hockey Superstar 2009-10: Alex Kovalev

Current Team: Montreal Canadiens
First NHL Team: New York Rangers
Position: Right Wing
Birthdate: Feb. 24, 1973
Birthplace: Togliatti, former USSR


Alex Kovalev isn’t one to quit when the going gets tough. A professional hockey player since he was 16 years old,


many people were ready to write the Russian superstar off after the 2006-2007 season, when he only managed 18 goals and 29 assists. Then everything changed.

Alex fought back hard and, in 2007-2008, as part of the Montreal Canadiens, he enjoyed one of the best seasons in his hockey career, leading his team in scoring. That’s why the team’s poor results last year were so disappointing to everyone, including Alex.


Alex Kovalev

Still he battles on. And, if the past is anything to go by, Alex will be back in top form this season – that’s what makes him a hockey superstar.


Hockey Highlights

Besides being a great hockey player, Alex is also a licensed pilot who’s logged over 1,000 hours of flight time in different aircraft – even a helicopter!

    CHEERLEADING IS LIKE DANCE GYMNASTICS MIXED TOGETHER WITH WORDS. AND DANCE AND GYMNASTICS ARE CONSIDERED SPORTS.
