Malkin can easily enter the top 3 of NHL scorers at the end of the season, believes Velichkin

The Russian attackerPittsburgh Penguins » Evgeny Malkin could become one of the best scorers of the current season of the National Hockey League (NHL), believes the former vice-president of Metallurg Magnitogorsk Gennady Velichkin .

In three games with the Penguins, the 37-year-old Russian scored 6 (2+4) points and was recognized as the third star of the NHL opening week.

— I expected such a departure from Malkin. For several years in a row, he had great difficulty recovering from his injuries, followed by a difficult convalescence. He has God-given talent and incredible skills. His self-discipline allowed him to overcome all setbacks.

Can Malkin compete for regular season top scorer in the new season? I can’t say it any other way, of course, yes (laughs). I want him to avoid injuries and everything will work out for him. He can easily become one of the top 3 scorers in the NHL.

Will Ovechkin get ahead of him? (Laughs). They cannot be compared. You cannot compare a car and a tractor. A tractor is better for sowing and a car is better for driving. What is the car? They are incomparable guys. One is a violinist, the other a pianist. It is impossible to compare who plays the violin or the piano better, that’s how it is with them, ”Velichkin Legalbet quotes.

Malkin, the second overall pick in the 2004 NHL Draft, ranks third in the league in assists (762) and fourth in goals (473) and points (1,235) since his NHL debut in the 2006-07 season (1,066 matches). . .
