Evgeni Malkin has elbow surgery, expected to be ready for Penguins’ camp


Pittsburgh Penguins star Evgeni Malkin had surgery on his left elbow Monday and will need three to four weeks of recovery time, the team announced Monday.

The 34-year-old forward should return in time for training camp before the 2020-21 season, which is scheduled to begin in December.

The surgery was performed at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital by the team physician, Dr. Dharmesh Vyas, and Dr. John Fowler of UPMC Shoulder and Elbow Orthopedic Surgery.

A three-time Stanley Cup winner, Malkin has scored 1,076 points (416 goals, 660 assists) in 907 regular-season games over 14 seasons with the Penguins. He won the Hart Trophy in 2011-12 and the Art Ross Trophy in 2008-09 and 2011-12.

In 2019-20, he scored 25 goals and 74 points 55 games. He had one assist in four games in Pittsburgh’s 3-1 series loss to the Montreal Canadiens in the qualification round earlier this month in Toronto.

The Penguins also announced that forward Zach Aston-Reese will be sidelined for six months following surgery on his left shoulder. Vyas performed the procedure at UPMC Montefiore Hospital.

Aston-Reese, 26, tallied six goals and 13 points in 57 games this season. He has 18 goals and 36 points in 116 contests since making his Penguins debut in February 2018.
