Malkin delivers season-tickets to Penguins fans

Monday, 09.07.2009 / 4:41 PM / 2009 NHL Offseason News

Reigning NHL scoring champion and playoff MVP Evgeni Malkin paid a visit to season-ticket holder Eric Davidson and his family Monday afternoon at his McDonald home to deliver his 2009-10 season ticket package.

Malkin was greeted at the front door by Davidson, his wife Gwen, and the couple’s two young, adopted Russian children, Zack and Eli. Both children wore Penguins jerseys and clung to miniature Stanley Cups as the Conn Smythe winner entered the family's home.

"(We're) tremendously excited," Gwen said. "It's an honor for him to come to our home and deliver our season tickets."

"I've been a fan since 1972," Davidson said. "I've been going to as many games as possible since then."

Quote of the Day

I don't know the room very well yet. I don't know how we're going to react in certain situations. We've had a couple of minor tests throughout the [preseason] ... We'll get to know each other as the year goes on. We'll figure it out.
