Penguins center Evgeni Malkin underwent successful elbow surgery, the Penguins announced today. [hide]

The good news for all parties involved is that the surgery was not a significant one we often see for athletes that lead to a 9-18 month recovery period as the team cites just a 3-4 week recovery timeframe for Malkin.

A team source called it a ‘clean up’ procedure. [/hide]
