Evgeni Malkin Interview - 2009 NHL Awards

Last week we met with Calder ('07), Art Ross ('09), Conn Smythe ('09), and Stanley Cup winner ('09) Evgeni Malkin of the Pittsburgh Penguins at the NHL Awards in Las Vegas to discuss the pool party and his plans for the Cup. These are his stories.

Q: Tell me about the pool party at Mario's house?
A: Oh it was a good time. Lots of people came, friends, family, kids. Great time with the Stanley Cup in the pool. Lots of pictures of the Cup. It was a great time.

Q: Were you in the pool with the Cup?
A: I didn’t swim. It’s not a big pool. The kids swim, I drink.

Q: What are your plans for the Stanley Cup this summer?
A: Yeah, I'm planning to take the Cup back to my town in Russia. I have lots of friends and I’ll have a big party of course.

Q: Are you friends with Pavel Bure?
A: Oh yeah, we have dinner when I’m back. We’re friends.

Many thanks to Geno for speaking with us. Best of luck next season.
