today 13:19 | Russian hockey player Yevgeny Malkin has denied reports that he intends to play at home next season. His contract with Pittsburgh expires this summer, making him a free agent in the NHL. Before coming overseas, Malkin played for three seasons at his hometown club Metallurg Magnitogorsk, where he returned during the 2012-2013 NHL lockout. “Today I read in a Russian newspaper that my hometown offered me a job. It is not truth. I want to stay here, I want to play in the NHL. There is a lot going on right now, but I hope to stay here and end my career here, “Malkina quoted AP as saying. Longtime player Penguins does not think that the problem of the new contract will be money and he would like to sign it with the club for several years. “I believe that I am still a good hockey player and I believe that good players sign good contracts. At the moment, I would like to play for another three or four years. It’s not about money, but on the other hand I have a family, parents and I want to secure a good future for them, “said the 35-year-old center. The seven-time NHL All-Starer played his entire 16-year career in Pittsburgh, which he drafted in 2004. Due to injuries, he played only 41 games last season, or exactly half of the regular season. He scored 20 goals and added 22 assists. In the seven-match series of the first round of the playoffs with the New York Rangers, he scored three goals and three assists, the “penguins” dropped out. In 2012, Malkin received the most prestigious individual Hart Trophy award for the most useful player in the basic part. During his time with the Penguins, he won the Stanley Cup three times, including in 2009, when he was named the most useful player in the knockout stage (Conn Smythe Trophy). During his career, he scored 1,146 points (444 goals and 702 assists) in 981 long-term matches. He also demonstrated his importance for the club in the difficult battles for the Stanley Cup, he collected 180 points in 177 duels (67 + 113).
