Evgeni Malkin should have many assists during his NHL career.

However, his biggest assist may have come off the ice.

Malkin, the 20-year-old Penguins rookie, helped facilitate a much-needed surgery for a 6-year-old girl in Magnitogorsk, Russia, in September.

Proof that not all pro athletes are jerks, just too many of them.

All that talent and a big, generous heart. No wonder he's Russia's "national treasure."

Hopefully the little girl's life will vastly improve.

Awesome, this is a tremendous story. Malkin looks like a great kid, this seems to confirm it.

Plus, he absolutely LOVES to score. Crosby and Malkin may each be good for 150 points a year in the very near future, setting each other up, and COMPETING with each other.

Example: Crosby shot 500 pucks after practice the other night because he had been having trouble scoring (but mostly because he had seen Malkin score goals in each of his first 4 games).

props to malkin.

it would be a better story had he snuck into russia disguised as a doctor and done the surgery himself before disappearing into the night.

Too many of them is right. However, as a rule, hockey players seem to be the nicest guys off the ice. Ed Belfour, for example. (snicker)

Nice to see a young player like Malkin do something like this.
