Evgeni Malkin didn't miss a beat from his Hart Trophy-winning season during his KHL jaunt, so Pittsburgh Penguins fans have a right to be excited.

Only one player - a teammate named Sergei Mozyakin, who likely benefited from his presence - scored more than Malkin's 65 points. Geno did so in just 37 games. NHL players were productive in general as Alexander Ovechkin, Ilya Kovalchuk and former NHLer Alexander Radulov rounded out the league's top five in points.
