Evgeni Malkin raised some eyebrows when the Penguins superstar dropped the gloves with Patrice Bergeron during the Eastern Conference finals against the Bruins. Malkin’s most recent fight came against a pretty unusual combatant as well, albeit in a much different manner.
Playing in a charity game in his native Russia, Malkin tangled with a 7-year-old. Things seemed to be in order until the two started playfully pushing and shoving and got tangled up. Before too long, the gloves were on the ice and the bout was on.
The light-hearted moment was thankfully captured on video, and the video is funny, so you should check it out below.
