Malkin gets eight-year extension
TheFourthPeriod.com

The Pittsburgh Penguins have agreed to terms with center Evgeni Malkin on an eight-year $76 million contract extension.

Malkin, 26, is now signed through the 2021-22 season and will earn $9.5 million in each year of his new deal.

It was believed that Malkin might consider signing in the KHL after his contract with the Penguins expired following the 2014-15 season, but that merely seemed to have been stemmed from a baseless report out of Russia.

Malkin, a native of Magnitogorsk, Russia, is one of just three Penguins in franchise history to win multiple Art Ross Trophies as the NHL scoring leader (2009, 2012), joining Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr. He has also won the Hart Trophy (2012), Ted Lindsay Award (2012) and Calder Trophy (2007).

A three-time 100-point producer and a four-time 30-plus goal scorer, Malkin has been named team MVP on three occasions (2008, '09, '12); earned a spot on the NHL's First-Team All-Star squad three times (2008, '09, '12); and has been named to four NHL All-Star Games (2008, '09, '11, '12).

Malkin, who helped the Penguins win the franchise's third Stanley Cup championship in 2009, became just the fifth player since 1967 to win both the regular-season and playoff scoring titles, joining Lemieux, Wayne Gretzky, Guy Lafleur and Phil Esposito.

Malkin was drafted second-overall by the Penguins in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
