|Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
Kozlov had broken out as a scorer (in the Art Ross form, not in the goal scorer form) while he was a Panther, having
fulfilled some of the promise as a playmaker that was put upon him when he was only a teenager.
As a Devil, though... grossly underachieved.
Although with the establishment of the shootout in '05, he started to emerge as a threat in the skills competition tie-
Anyway, he moved on to the Islanders for a season, and had returned to form with them, including a career high in goals
with 25. He got two more productive years with the Washington Capitals before he returned to Russia, starring for
Salavat Yulayev Ufa of the KHL for 3 seasons. He played for a few other teams in the K before retiring in 2015.
He would join the Metallurg Magnitogorsk coaching staff shortly thereafter as an assistant.
