According to a blog report on the Atlanta Journal-Constitution website, Atlanta Thrashers forward Vyacheslav Kozlov has requested a trade.

The 37-year-old winger has a no-trade clause, but said he would be willing to waive it in order to join a contender.

Having played only twice in Atlanta's last ten games, Kozlov has fallen out of favour with Thrashers head coach John Anderson.

"I don't know if I'm going to be on this team or another team," Kozlov told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "If we can find a team which I like and which is good for me and my family I will go. If not, I'm going to be here.

With coach not playing me, what can you do? That's why I feel I could go play for somebody that needs my help. If so, I'll waive my no trade clause."

A talented yet inconsistent performer, Kozlov only has 24 points with a career-worst minus-16 rating in 52 games this season, a year after tallying 76 points, including 43 on the power play.  Kozlov has accumulated 851 points in 1,179 career games.
