Since American NHL leader troll Gary Bettman make with hockey lockout (remind you of Putin, da? Except fearless leader Putin like hockey, ho ho ho!), Evgeni Malkin sign with Metallurg. Metallurg play in Magnitorogorsk, hearty industrial city in Chelyabinsk Oblast, Russia. Malkin from Magnitorogorsk, Magnitorogorsk best. Metallurg third best Kontinental Hockey League team last year. (Still best.)


Malkin joined in Magnitorogorsk by fellow Magnitorogorskian Sergei Gonchar. Sad fact looking from this news is Malkin и Gonchar making no thoughts for NHL season. Malkin и Gonchar sign through 2013, probably make for hockey play in KHL no matter what monkey-бизнес happen in America. Here I make with AP report, and run it through the Googleiev Transklatiov and back for to make more sense:
