Evgeni Malkin Fights 7-Year-Old Hockey Player…For Charity (Video)
Under normal circumstances, a full-grown man getting into a hockey fight with a 7-year-old would be considered shameful. However, when that grown man is former NHL MVP Evgeni Malkin, and when the fight in question is all part of a charity hockey game in his native Russia, well then in that case a hockey fight with a 7-year-old is pretty hilarious.
Because I don’t speak or read Russian, I cannot tell you very much about the charity game. However, I can tell you that it was organized by Ilya Kovalchuk, and that part of the event entailed a group of all-stars associated with KHL team SKA St. Petersburg playing a game against a youth hockey team. It was before this game against the kids that this “fight” broke out.
Was it all arranged in advance? Was it just something that occurred spontaneously? Who knows. It was definitely hilarious, though—especially if you realize that Malkin has exactly four fights on his NHL resume.
