Evgeni Malkin is back to work in Russia, embarrassing defenders left and right. He’s currently playing in his home country of Russia for the KHL’s Metallurg Magnitogorsk, who won their game on Monday 3-0 over Amur Khabarovsk (it’s a team, not a person).

Not to say he hasn’t smoked some top-notch NHL defenders in the past, but this is just silly. Via Puck Daddy Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
