Malkin kept that run going with an assist in the Penguins' 5-4 overtime win versus Buffalo on Tuesday. He's up to seven goals and 21 points in 20 contests. He should be able to roughly maintain that pace throughout the season, but the bigger concern with him is his lengthy injury history. Nov 15 - 5:15 AM

Evgeni Malkin is on a four-game point streak.

Malkin kept that run going with an assist in the Penguins' 2-1 overtime loss to Calgary on Thursday. He has six goals and 15 points in 15 games. He's one of the league's best forwards, but the issue with him in recent years has been his health. You'd have to go all the way back to 2011-12 to find the last time that Malkin played in at least 70 games. Hopefully he'll avoid the sidelines for any prolonged period of time this season.

He's up to six goals and 14 points in 14 contests this season. Malkin continues to be one of the most dominant offensive players in the game.

It was Malkin's second game-winning goal of the season already. He is coming off a 72-point season in which he missed 20 games, so it looks as though he will be very productive fantasy-wise this year.

Evgeni Malkin finished the 2017 playoffs with a league-best 28 points in 24 games, plus a Stanley Cup.

Despite leading the NHL in points, Malkin didn't even lead his own team in goals or assists. His 10 goals were second to Jake Guentzel and 18 assists were second to Sidney Crosby. Nonetheless, Malkin's scoring touch and playmaking ability helped the Penguins win their third Cup of the Crosby-Malkin era and second in a row.

Evgeni Malkin is just one assist shy from his 100th career playoff helper.

Malkin would become the 23rd player to ever reach that feat. Of his 99 career assists, he's accumulated 30 over the last two seasons to help the Penguins capture the Stanley Cup in 2016 and put them on the brink of repeating this year. If Pittsburgh does win the Cup in Game 6 on Sunday then there's a good chance that Malkin will be named as the Conn Smythe Trophy winner. He has 10 goals and a league-leading 28 points in 24 postseason contests in 2017.

It should come as no surprise that many hockey pundits believe that if the Penguins win the Stanely Cup, either Evgeni Malkin or Sidney Crosby will win the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP.

Well that's pretty much a no-brainer. Malkin leads all playoff scorers with 28 points but Crosby has been closing quickly and now has 27. Both have won the award once and if either win a second time they will join a star-studded group made of Mario Lemieux, Wayne Gretzky, Bobby Orr, Patrick Roy and Bernie Parent as two-time winnrers.

Evgeni Malkin picked up a goal and an assist in Thursday's 6-0 win over Nashville in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Malkin's first goal in three games gave Pittsburgh a 3-0 lead at the 19:49 mark of the first period. The Russian center then added the primary assist on Ron Hainsey's goal (6-0) in the second frame. Malkin now has 10 goals and 28 points in 24 games this postseason. One more victory would allow the Penguins to hoist the Stanley Cup for the second consecutive year. Game 6 will be played in Nashville on Sunday night.
Jun 9 - 12:07 AM

Evgeni Malkin has failed to record a point in Games 3 and 4 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Malkin didn't even register a shot on goal in Game 3 and he picked up two shots in Game 4. Malkin has a minus-3 rating in those two contests. He'll need to get going if the Penguins are going to win their second consecutive Stanley Cup title. Despite going point-less in his last two outings, his 26 points are still tops in the league this postseason.
Jun 6 - 9:01 PM

Evgeni Malkin was unable to get a shot on goal Saturday.

Both he and Sidney Crosby failed to register a shot on goal against Pekka Rinne in Game 3. "I need to play better," Malkin said. "Maybe shoot a couple times. Not one-timer but wrist shot. Go to the net. I don’t know. I can’t explain it... I didn’t play great. We didn’t play much in the offensive zone." Malkin leads the NHL in points during the playoffs with 26 including nine goals.
