Evgeni Malkin has suddenly found himself in the midst of trade speculation, which has prompted his agent, J.P. Barry, to reportedly respond on Friday to the rumors flowing out there.

This certainly isn’t the first time Malkin’s name has been out there, circulating the rumor mill.

In fact, as recently as late-April, when the Penguins were ousted in the first round of the playoffs, hockey insider Elliotte Friedman put out there that Pittsburgh needed to think about trading the 28-year-old Malkin.

Prior to that, Penguins CEO and president David Morehouse said there was no interest from the club in breaking up Sidney Crosby and Malkin.
