The Penguins announced that Evgeni Malkin has been activated off the IR! The 33-year-old centre is returning to the lineup after missing 11 games. Party time, children!
Malkin has been out with a “soft tissue injury” since October 7th and the Penguins have gone 7-4-0 since then. The team is only going to improve from here.
Malkin brings physically and skill to the lineup that is second to none. Geno was determined to have a fantastic season (and I hyped the hell out of him here) after a rough year last season. Now that he’s back, he is going to do just that.
I’m delighted he’s healthy, getting back onto the ice and it’s only a matter of time before he starts lighting it up on the ice once more.
