MINSK, Belarus (AP) - Star forward Evgeni Malkin will join Russia at the world hockey championship after his Pittsburgh Penguins were eliminated from the NHL playoffs by the New York Rangers.

The center had 23 goals and 49 assists in 60 regular-season games, and 14 points in 13 postseason games.

Malkin was a member of the Russia team that won the 2012 worlds.

Led by Alex Ovechkin, Russia has been unbeatable at the worlds, winning four straight games.
