Evgeni Malkin will not play in World Championships due to knee injury

The Penguins star was hampered through this playoffs and his season has come to an end.

Russia Hockey

It was no secret nor a surprise that Evgeni Malkin was playing through an injury after sitting out a few games at the end of the Philadelphia series and beginning of the Washington series.

We know know what that injury was (and might expect more details on it from the Penguins when getaway day comes.)

Oh, your Russian isn’t that great? Me either.

It’s not great for anyone to be injured, but I’m sure he will enjoy the rest this spring while he can and get healed up.

Fishing season will be here soon for him.
