Penguins center Evgeni Malkin is home in his native Russia for the summer visiting family and friends and working out in preparation for the 2010-11 season.
Last week Malkin had a visitor check in to talk about the upcoming season – head coach Dan Bylsma.
Bylsma was already in Europe on a family vacation when he decided to take a couple days to travel to Russia to meet up with Malkin.
"I went on a family vacation to Europe and had the opportunity to visit Moscow and see Geno," Bylsma said. "We had a lot of fun during the two days I got to spend with him."
The highlight of the trip occurred when Malkin took Bylsma on his yearly visit with the "Penguins Support Crew" – a Russian Penguins fan club which has existed since the 1990s.
