The story includes that Magnitogorsk had Malkin’s passport until his trip to Finland, and this was the first opportunity for Malkin to be in control of it. There was also pressure from the team officials who followed Malkin in Russia to his home and pressured him into signing into staying in Magnitogorsk.
