It's official: Penguins sign Russian star Malkin
It's finally official -- Evgeni Malkin is a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Evgeni Malkin has spent the past few weeks practicing in El Segundo, Calif.
General manager Ray Shero announced Tuesday that the team signed the second overall pick in the 2004 draft to a deal, just two days before the start of the Penguins' rookie training camp. The team made quick work to post the news on the Internet, updating their Web site's home page with an image of a sprawling Malkin under a banner headline bearing his name.
