Former NHL Penguins/KHL Player Encounter
Hello all -

I know a few of you have seen this on Facebook already, but I figured I share it on here as well.

Saturday morning I took my daughter to her private skating lesson, then after she has a group hockey clinic. Well, low and behold guess whos son is in her class?? Alexei Morozov! Former Pittsburgh Penguin and recent KHLer. I met him once before about a month and a half ago..we talked and I said I would like to get a pic of him with his Penguins Rookie jsy I own...he said no prob.

Well, I hadnt seen him since then until saturday....luckily my wife didnt come with me and was coming later for my sons private skating lesson...I was able to reach her and have her grab the jersey...

so here it is!

he also signed a few (3) of these for me (its the photo of the jersey i own that photomatches it):

I also happen to have a Pens puck in my truck that he signed for me as well:

He is a great guy. Very nice. I heard recently he wasnt resigned by the KHL team Ak Bars he was playing with, so I asked him what his plans were.....he said, I'm thinking about possibly retiring."

Here is the jersey in more detail on my site.

Thanks for the look!

Awesome as always. You should ask him if he still keeps in touch with Lemieux. Maybe he can hook you up with Super Mario!

Still remember the game we tugged on his jersey against Carolina, was an awesome moment to witness live.
