You know, it actually took me a few seconds before I realized that this was all in good fun– Evgeni Malkin fighting a seven-year-old following a recent charity game. It just… seems like the sort of thing he would do.
As expected, he lost. And credit to the blogger behind the curtain at SI.com, who brings us the video, for this line:
In the end, Malkin succumbed to the pummeling, prompting Flyers GM Paul Holmgren to offer the kid a three-year entry-level contract.
That would be real, real funny… if it, too, wasn’t possibly true.
