He should go back to LW whenever the NHL comes back. Unless of course he really wants to stay at RW. I'm pretty sure this was something started by the most incompetent/worst coach in NHL history John Maclean, so that he could play with Parise. There is really no reason to continue this with Parise gone unless Kovy prefers it himself. Lemaire may have done this a few times the season before though, but I don't really remember.
I'm not sure if this was done as a compliment to Kovy since he's a better player than Parise, and they thought he could adjust easier, or if it was a seniority thing since Parise had tenure with Maclean/Devils.
