Player Outlook

Evgeni Malkin would be a top-line center on just about any team other than the Penguins, but with that duty falling on living legend Sidney Crosby, he gets the luxury of exploiting opponents' second defensive pairings. While the oft-injured Russian hasn't recorded 70-plus games in a season since 2011-12, his career average of 1.18 points per game speaks for itself. Last season, Malkin fashioned typically robust scoring totals -- 33 goals and 39 assists -- though the alternate captain's 23 power-play points over 3:40 of average ice time represented a slight dip by his lofty standards. Still, having helped the Penguins to their second consecutive Stanley Cup, Geno remains one of the stars in the league and a justly expensive commodity in the fantasy realm.

Player News
  • Malkin scored his 10th goal of the playoffs and added an assist in Thursday's Game 5 win over the Predators. While Malkin is known as one of the league's best offensive players, he's also helping fantasy owners with a whopping 53 PIM this postseason. The feisty center only put up 18 points during the team's Cup-winning run last season, but he's already piled on 28 points this time around. Malkin has struck for three goals in the Stanley Cup Finals and is a huge reason why the team is just one win away from capturing another Cup. What a monster.

  • Malkin buried a power-play goal to open the scoring in Monday's Game 1 win over Nashville. The goal was Malkin's fifth point over his past four games, and he's now three points clear of Sidney Crosby for the postseason lead. Malkin is up to 154 points -- 56 goals -- through 143 playoff games, and the Russian continues to be a driving force for the Penguins offense. It's also worth noting that Monday's power-play goal was his first with the man advantage in these playoffs, but Malkin has collected an impressive 10 power-play assists.

  • Malkin opened the scoring in Tuesday's 2-1 Game 6 loss to the Senators. Malkin was all over the ice in this one, launching a game-high seven shots, including the only one among his team's 46 tries to beat Anderson. Unfortunately for him and the Penguins, Malkin's tally 4:51 into the second ended up being for naught when Bobby Ryan and Mike Hoffman both answered with goals of their own for the Senators. The Russian sniper should remain a major force in Game 7, as he's racked up seven goals and 24 points through 18 playoff games.

  • Malkin picked up three assists in Pittsburgh's 7-0 romp over Ottawa in Game 5 on Sunday. Malkin has seemingly screwed his head back on after ringing up 22 total PIM in Games 2 and 3. Sunday's performance was his first multi-point effort since May 1 (Game 3 against Washington).

  • Malkin racked up a dozen PIM on Wednesday, getting hit with a game misconduct for the second straight contest against the Senators in these conference finals. You can tell that the Sens are getting under the Russian's skin, as he's amassed 20 PIM -- not including a roughing minor in Game 2 -- in the waning moments of the last two fiery matches. Malkin has provided a goal and an assist in this series, but the Penguins are down 2-1 and can ill afford to watch the star pivot open himself up to costly penalties or let him get out of control emotionally.
