 The NHL's most sought-after free agent will be making a decision on his future destination today, according to his agent Jay Grossman.

Around noon, Grossman tweeted: "Ilya Kovalchuk looking to make decision on his future today."

Although Isles GM Garth Snow said via text this morning: "Nothing new to report," a development of some sort now seems imminent.

We know the LA Kings are out, which presumably leaves the NJ Devils and the NY Islanders, unless there is another mystery team in the mix that has managed to fly under the radar. The KHL is a possibility as well. Stay tuned...

***In non-Kovalchuk Islanders news: Matt Moulson will be filing for arbitration today, his agent just confirmed.
