He has the best 18 year old season ever and the second best (after Gretzky) 19 year old season. The kid is good.
The kid has also been injury prone since his 3rd season in the league.

BTW his 18 year old season was great but not necessarily the best, Lemieux says hello to that. He also won't be needed to do all the heavy lifting as he did in 2009-10 and 2010-11 before his injuries. Back then Malkin was playing on one leg. Now Malkin is completely healthy and better than ever. They will have to share the spotlight. In the past when both were healthy, it was Malkin that was the better player.
