Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Scores for Russia in World Cup of Hockey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin scored his first goal of the World Cup of Hockey in Russia's 3-0 win over Finland on Thursday.

Malkin's tally put the game away early in the third period by giving Russia a three-goal advantage. He hurt his elbow in the NHL playoffs, but has looked healthy in helping his home country advance to the semifinals.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Elbow feels better
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Malkin says his elbow is fully recovered from a postseason injury. "Everything is good," Malkin told DK Pittsburgh Sports. "Pretty strong right now. I worked all summer. Nothing wrong. I've played two exhibition games already. I feel good."

Initially, it was feared he would require major elbow surgery but in June team doctors determined that rehabilitation would work. The fact that Malkin has already participated in two World Cup of Hockey exhibition games bodes well for his future health. He still has two cranky knees but for now everything is fine.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Won't be traded
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Penguins' general manager Jim Rutherford says Malkin (elbow) "will not be traded," reports the NHL Network.

Rutherford was blunt in an interview during Round 2 of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft when addressing rumors that were swirling. However, it's interesting to note that he didn't say the same thing about Marc-Andre Fleury.

Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: MRI clean, no surgery required
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Malkin will not require surgery on his injured elbow and is not expected to miss any time in the 2016-17 season.

It was announced last week that Malkin was scheduled to undergo an MRI, but it now appears that those results have came back clean. Instead of surgery, Malkin will undergo a rehabilitation plan. This is excellent news for the defending Stanley Cup champions, as Malkin provided 58 points in 57 games for the Pens during the regular season, adding another 18 points (six goals) in the playoffs. Per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the injury was originally suffered on March 11, and forced Malkin to miss 17 total contests (including one playoff game).
