“They would not take any risk for the Chelsea game, I was in that much pain it was too much of a risk to play.” In his absence fellow summer signing Marc Muniesa filled in despite primarily being a centre-back and Pieters is not taking re-selection for granted. “Marc did really well and I am very proud of him. We came to Stoke together and I know it was difficult for him because he didn’t play many matches,” he told stokecityfc.com. “But when he played against Chelsea it was good for him and good for the team. “I want to play as well, but if the manager chooses from me or Marc, it is no problem.” The Dutchman missed Saturday’s victory over Chelsea because of the problem but insists he is ready to return at the KC Stadium. “I am good again now and am ready to go if I am selected of course,” he said.

It seems the writing is on the wall for Ilya Kovalchuk’s exit from the Los Angeles Kings franchise.Russian sports journalist Igor Eronko reported Friday that the 36-year-old’s contract with the Kings will soon be terminated. Kovalchuk has not skated for the Kings in a game since Nov. 9 against the Montreal Canadiens. On Nov. 12, Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reported that the forward had been told he will be “scratched for the foreseeable future,” and reports surfaced that Los Angeles had sought to trade Kovalchuk.MORE: Niagara IceDogs goalie Tucker Tynan thanks supporters following severe leg injuryEronko reported that Kovalchuk — who has three goals and six assists in 17 games played this season — still wishes to play in the NHL, but has a “lucrative” offer on the table from the KHL’s Omsk Avangard.The Russian scorer may still have more to offer to contending NHL clubs, but the Fourth Period’s David Pagnotta reported that teams have balked at trades with the Kings out of concern with the length of Kovalchuk’s deal, even if Los Angeles retains salary (he is signed through 2020-21). “Termination has been discussed, but trade is the preferred route,” Pagnotta wrote on Twitter.According to CapFriendly, three factors could play into a potential termination of the contract:Kovalchuk’s no-movement clause would not force him through waivers preceding termination.Because he signed his contract at age 35 or older, his $6.25 million salary cap hit would count against the Kings’ salary cap for the rest of this season and next.Kovalchuk himself would forfeit nearly $4.7 million in salary if his contract is terminated.Kovalchuk, the first overall pick in the 2001 NHL draft, has scored 436 goals (859 points) in 897 games over 13 seasons in the NHL.
