Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin skates for first time since knee surgery

Evgeni Malkin is back on the ice.

The Pittsburgh Penguins star forward has been doing some light skating since Thursday, his first on-ice activity since tearing the ACL and MCL in his right knee in a Feb. 4 game against the Buffalo Sabres.

Malkin had surgery in mid-February. While there is no specific timetable for his return, Malkin was initially expected to be ready for training camp in September.

The Penguins posted photos and video from one of Malkin's sessions on their website:
