Kings claim Nikita Scherbak off waivers with Ilya Kovalchuk to have ankle surgery

He also said he hopes winger Ilya Kovalchuk will have a good influence on Scherbak. “It’s interesting him coming in too. Kovalchuk, him and I, I haven’t given him that ice time but I sure like his character and he’ll help with the young Russian coming in,” Desjardins said. “Kovalchuk’s got great character and he trains hard, so that will be good for a young guy coming in. He’ll be able to mentor [Scherbak] a little.”
