This is like a week after the article came out, but I was going through Evgeni Malkin's tag on tumblr, and I came across this section:
Penguins center Evgeni Malkin did not echo the sentiments of countryman Ilya Kovalchuk, who recently defended Russia's controversial policies about gay rights propaganda.
Malkin said that he isn't comfortable speaking on the topic in English because it isn't his primary language, but he did offer an opinion when asked if he would have a problem playing with a gay teammate.
“No,” he said. “No problem.”

I love him so fucking much and if I ever meet this man, there's a really big risk I'll propose to him.
