Hockey Star Ilya Kovalchuk Lists Palatial Home in Alpine, NJ for $18M

Russian-born hockey star Ilya Kovalchuk is getting ready to say goodbye to his 10-room French chateau-inspired mansion in Alpine, New Jersey.

Kovalchuk, now playing for the Los Angeles Kings, bought the 2-acre tract in 2010 (after joining the New Jersey Devils) for $4.5 million. He then built a beautiful custom home at 10 Flick Drive that looks like something out of a fairytale, which he’s now ready to part with for a whopping $17.99 million.
