PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Penguins’ assistant captain Evgeni Malkin is wasting no time making his way back to Pittsburgh after it was announced NHL teams could reopen their facilities next week.

Malkin posted a selfie on Instagram in what appeared to be him on a plane headed back to Pittsburgh to prepare for the potential return of the NHL.

The Penguins are among the 24 teams in the NHL’s Return To Play playoff that was agreed upon last week.
