Evgeni Malkin reached and then surpassed the 800-point milestone on Tuesday.

We all love big round numbers and with just one more point Evgeni Malkin's will reach No. 800, which has a bit more meaning than usual.

He'll become the ninth Russian to reach the plateau in NHL history, as well as the third Penguin. Sergei Gonchar (811) and Ilya Kovalchuk (816) are within reach this season, with Vyacheslav Kozlov (853) and potentially Pavel Datsyuk (918) next season. On the Penguins side of things Malkin needs 10 more helpers to become the fourth ever to reach 500, and will eventually reach the 400-goal mark (currently at 309, Sidney Crosby at 362) in the future. Suffice it to say that when it's all said and done, Malkin's No. 71 should be hanging in the rafters.

Sidney Crosby has been picking up all the headlines this year, but Malkin has quietly put together another strong season. The Russian forward has 14 goals and 37 points in 33 games this season. He's a must-start in all fantasy formats.
