Evgeni Malkin's season is one milestone away from being complete. He is one goal away from 50th. It was noted on the Penguins post game show last night that only 5 other Russian players have done it.
Here is the list:
The Russian Rocket had five 50 plus goal seasons, including two 60 goal years
Fedorov had one 50 goal year in in 93-94.
Mogilny, maybe one of the more underrated Russian player of all time had two 50 goal campaigns including a 76 goal year in 92-93.
Kovalchuk has had two 50 goal years.
A.O. has done it four times including a 65 goal year in 07-08
