  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Re-ups with Pittsburgh

    Malkin signed a four-year, $24.4 million contract with the Penguins on Tuesday.

    After a few weeks of will-they-or-won't-they, Malkin and the Penguins were able to strike an agreement on the eve of free agency. The new contract will take him through his age-39 season, and it allows the Penguins to keep their longtime core of Malkin, Sidney Crosby and Kris Letang together for at least three more seasons. Injuries have limited Malkin frequently in recent years, but he was still highly effective with 20 goals and 22 assists in 41 contests in 2021-22. He'll likely remain in a second-line role with plenty of power-play time going forward.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Testing free agency

    Malkin has decided to test the open market and will hit unrestricted free agency Wednesday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

    Malkin and the Penguins have reportedly been discussing a new contract for the 35-year-old but not enough progress has been made. He's been riddled with injuries over the last several seasons but he's still scored 216 points in 197 games over the last four years; that includes 20 goals and 42 points through 41 contests during the 2021-22 campaign. The superstar center will certainly be a hot commodity on the market, if for no other reason than his years of postseason experience. Malkin's last deal was for eight years at $9.5 million AAV signed in 2013.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Still hits 20-goal mark

    Malkin managed to reach the 20-goal threshold 13th time in his NHL career despite playing in just 41 games.

    Malkin missed the early part of the year while recovering from offseason knee surgery, his second such procedure on that knee. Despite the lack of games and slow start to the year, Malkin still managed to produce at a top level, including 20 of his 42 points coming with the man advantage. The Russian winger's focus will now turn to the offseason and whether he will re-sign with Pittsburgh, the only team he's ever played for, or head elsewhere in free agency.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Tallies in Game 6 loss

    Malkin scored a goal on seven shots and added two hits in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Rangers in Game 6.

    Malkin picked off a pass at his own blue line, banked it into the Rangers' zone and beat the defenseman to the puck to score the Penguins' third goal. The 35-year-old center has three goals and three assists through six playoff contests. He's added 21 shots on net, nine hits, a plus-2 rating and six PIM. As long as Sidney Crosby (concussion) is out, Malkin will have a chance to see top-line minutes.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Scores winner in third OT

    Malkin scored the game-winning goal in triple overtime and added a power-play assist in Tuesday's 4-3 Game 1 win over the Rangers.

    Malkin ended the marathon battle with a tip in front 5:58 into the third overtime. Earlier in the night, he set up a Bryan Rust tap-in with a cross-crease pass on a 5-on-3. This was Malkin's third multi-point game in his last five outings since returning from a suspension.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Reaches 20 goals again

    Malkin scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 5-3 win over the Blue Jackets.

    He opened the scoring early in the first period, giving Malkin 20 goals on the season -- the 13th time in his career he's reached that mark. Despite missing half the year, the 35-year-old still wound up on a point-a-game pace with 42 points in 41 contests, including seven goals and 14 points in his last 12 games.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Lights lamp twice in return

    Malkin scored two goals, one on the power play, in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Red Wings.

    Pittsburgh scored the final five tallies on the afternoon, with Malkin firing home two of them. The 35-year-old had missed the prior four games while serving a suspension, but that may have just given him a nice rest ahead of the Penguins' playoff run. On the season, Malkin has 19 goals and 39 points in 38 games.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Returning Friday

    Malkin served his four-game suspension and will be in Friday's lineup against Detroit.

    Malkin has been absent for the last four games after cross-checking Mark Borowiecki on April 10. The star center has 13 points in his last 11 appearances, bringing his season total to 37 through 37 games. Malkin will be in his usual top-six spot as well as his role on Pittsburgh's top power-play unit.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Set for hearing with league

    Malkin will have a hearing with the Department of Player Safety on Monday for a cross-check on Predators Mark Borowiecki.

    Malkin should be expected to miss several games considering he cross-checked Borowiecki in the face. In 37 games back from a knee injury, the 35-year-old center has racked up 17 goals and 20 assists for a point-per-game pace. Without Malkin in the lineup, Pittsburgh will likely shift Jeff Carter to the second line, which should bolster his fantasy value.

  • Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Suspended four games

    Malkin was suspended four games Monday for cross-checking Mark Borowiecki.

    Malkin will now miss the next four games, two of those against the Islanders and a pair against Boston. He won't be eligible to return until April 23 against the Red Wings. The star center has 17 goals and 37 points in 37 games and will only be able to play a max of 41 games this regular season assuming he doesn't successfully appeal the ruling.

    Malkin scored three goals, one on the power play, and added a power-play assist in Sunday's 11-2 rout of the Red Wings.

    After sitting out Friday's game against the Rangers due to an illness, Malkin erupted for his 13th career hat trick upon his return, with his first tally of the night also proving to be the game-winner. The 35-year-old has a four-game goal streak going, and on the season he's racked up 16 goals and 32 points in only 30 games.
