  • 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.

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: 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.

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: Returns to practice Monday

    Malkin (undisclosed) was back on the ice for Monday's practice session, per Pens Inside Scoop.

    Malkin was excused from Sunday's practice for a maintenance day, so fantasy players can breathe easy now that the world-class center has rejoined the team. Considering the busy schedule and the fact that Malkin is just two months back from major knee surgery, it shouldn't come as a surprise if he is given some extra time off periodically. With 24 points in 21 contests, the 35-year-old Malkin should be a lock for lineups in any format on a nightly basis.
