Malkin had 28 shots on goal in the first 12 games but had five shots on goal Saturday, scoring his sixth of the season in a 6-1 win over Buffalo.

Nov 9 - 8:24 AM

Evgeni Malkin is close to 100 percent after missing all of the pre-season with an undisclosed injury.

Malkin is currently on a nine game point streak and picked up his 400th career assist on Thursday. "I think Geno's overall game ... you can just see it getting better and better," coach Mike Johnston said. "He's picking up the puck with more speed. He's carrying it. He's protecting the puck longer and making better plays. I think his game over the course of the next couple weeks will probably be where he would've wanted it to be if he had a preseason." Malkin currently has four goals and 12 points in 12 games with all four goals coming on the power play. Look for his numbers to improve as he can score at a greater clip than a point per game.

It looks like the Pittsburgh Penguins will go with Evgeni Malkin at his familiar center spot for the second straight game.

Malkin collected an assist, one SOG, one hit and a -1 rating as the Detroit Red Wings came back against his Penguins on Thursday. His linemates were Pascal Dupuis and Blake Comeau in that configuration. Malkin began the season at RW, but that experiment may be over.

Evgeni Malkin will serve as a right winger for at least two more games.

It looks like Penguins coach Mike Johnston will reevaluate the situation after that. Shifting Malkin to the wing has allowed him to play with center Brandon Sutter as well as Pascal Dupuis. So far that line has done very well, although any line with Malkin in it will typically succeed.
Oct 16 - 9:00 AM

Evgeni Malkin still needs to build up his strength, but he's over his undisclosed injury.

Malkin took part in Pittsburgh's season opener on Thursday and recorded an assist. His health is an ongoing concern given his injury history, but there's no question that he's one of the league's best players when he's healthy.
Oct 10 - 12:50 PM

Evgeni Malkin had an assist in Pittsburgh's 6-4 win on Thursday.

Malkin played in the Penguins' opener despite missing the entire preseason due to an undisclosed injury. He also recorded four penalty minutes and finished the game with a plus-one rating.
Oct 10 - 11:21 AM

Evgeni Malkin will be available for Pittsburgh's first game of the season after missing most of training camp due to an undisclosed ailment.

He will play at right wing alongside Brandon Sutter and Pascal Dupuis. Activate Malkin if you haven't already done so. "I've played it before. I like playing right [wing]," Malkin said. "It's better for me. It's more of a chance to shoot the puck."
