Evgeni Malkin Pittsburgh Penguins White Nike/Bauer Game Used Stick - Rookie
Lot #430

This white Nike/Bauer Vapor XXX lite hockey stick has game used by Evgeni Malkin during his rookie season of 2006-07. The Pittsburgh Penguins selected Malkin with the 2nd overall pick in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. Malkin joined the Penguins in 2006-07 and began his career in style, winning the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s Rookie of the Year. During his sophomore season, Evgeni scored 47 goals and 106 points finishing second to Alex Ovechkin for the NHL Scoring title. Evgeni was named a finalist for the Hart and Lindsay Trophies for his outstanding work as a sophomore. Malkin’s efforts helped Pittsburgh to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2007-08 where they fell at the hands of the Detroit Red Wings.

The 2008-09 season would be different, as Malkin would overtake Ovechkin and win the scoring title, capturing his first Art Ross Trophy. His phenomenal work wasn’t complete. He would continue his torrid scoring throughout the playoffs and helped lead the Penguins to the Stanley Cup, being named the Conn Smythe Trophy winner as playoff MVP with an amazing 36 point outburst in 24 games. Thus, Evgeni became the first-ever Russian born player to win the Conn Smythe Trophy.

After dealing with injury and a lengthy rehab over the following couple of years, this superstar winger was back in the fold in a big way. Evgeni had again become the Penguins go to man on the strength of a 50-goal and 109-point season in 2011-12 that earned him his second Art Ross Trophy. So good in fact was his 2011-12 season that Evgeni also won the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s MVP as well as the Ted Lindsay Award as the NHL’s most outstanding player. This 32 year old has played in 4 NHL All Star games and has three 1st Team NHL All Star selections to his credit. Malkin has continued to average well in excess of a point per game during his 13-year NHL career. His future Hall of Fame candidacy was recently cemented by a pair of Stanley Cup titles for the Penguins bringing the number of Championships won during the Crosby Era to three!

This white Nike/Bauer rookie stick has the player name “Malkin” on the side. The stick is fully taped on the butt and blade. It is uncracked and in beautiful condition.
