Because defensively, the LW and RW have different responsibilities. In our system, the LW is usually the high forward in the neutral zone when the puck is coming back toward our defensive zone, and the RW is the one who has the free rein to forecheck. I'd rather have Kovy forechecking than being part of the defensive line at the blue line.

Also, as others have noted, positioning Kovy on the right side makes the breakout easier for everyone.
