Found February 13, 2012 on Bleed Black & Gold:

I feel like I write one about Malkin being some kind of star, month or week, all the time.  I also believe that this comes to no one’s surprise that he received yet another weekly honor.   According to the Pens website this is the 6th time this season Malkin has been been honored by the NHL.  In his last 5 games he has 5 goals and 5 assists, averaging 2 points a game in that span.  He’s awesome, we all know that.    Malkin is making a strong case for the Hart Trophy and the Art Ross as the current leading scorer in the NHL.  He is leading the league in points with 69 and the next closest is Steven Stamkos and Claude Giroux both with 62.  There is no question that there is no hotter hockey player in the NHL right now.  Below are some of his standout goals in the last week.
