Latest news about Malkin and Letang

Penguins general manager Ron Hextoll said Monday that he wants Christopher Letang and Evgeny Malkin to retire with the Pittsburgh team.

“We have had discussions recently and will continue to maintain them,” said the Managing Director, whose comments were taken up through the Penguins Twitter account.

“In an ideal world, ‘Geno’ would retire with the penguins, just like ‘Tangier.’ They are two players of a generation.

Remember that Malkin and Letang, both close to the plateau of 1000 regular season encounters with the “pens”, can achieve full autonomy as early as July.

If the Russian hub has been able to play just 41 games this season due to a process conducted last summer – amassing 42 points in the process – the Quebec backstop has meanwhile hit a new personal high with 68 points in 78 games.

“What I can tell you about them is that they are both excellent athletes who have been here for a long time and are playing at the highest level at the moment,” Hextal said. “We would definitely like to be able to count on them in September.”

Malkin spent the final season of an eight-year contract earning him an average of $9.5 million annually. Meanwhile, Letang has been making $7.25 million this season.
