Must-Read: The PG’s in-depth piece on Evgeni Malkin

This piece in today's Post Gazette is one of the more thorough pieces we've seen on Malkin. [ PG ]

So much good stuff, and background.

- Malkin bought his mom and dad a house when he was a teenager.

- Malkin's mom refused to buy him a dog.

- The whole write up of how Malkin went to hockey school is incredible.

- Malkin's escape to Pittsburgh is riveting stuff. How his Russian team tried to keep him was known, but never in this detail.
