I too am excited about seeing what Marko Kovacevic can do in the CHL. As you had said, he is the first Yugoslav player to be drafted in the Canadian Hockey League and with that, he is going to be a focal point for many this year. I think that Kovacevic's size will help him to adjust quicker and the fact that he has played against men in Europe. For his size, he has good hands and a good hockey mind. I think he may turn out to remind many of a Sudbury resident, Todd Bertuzzi, although I think he will stick to more of a skill game than the bang-and-crash style of big Bert. Either way, I think Kovacevic will be successful with the Wolves.
