And things just keep getting better for Penguins.
The team officially announced forward Evgeni Malkin will undergo knee surgery Thursday to repair a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee. He suffered the injury Friday in a collision with Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers.
Rehabilitation is expected to take six month and he should be ready for training camp to begin the 2011-12 season.
In 43 games this season, Malkin had 37 points.
