Evgeni Malkin is living his offseason to the fullest.

The Pittsburgh Penguins star center posted a picture of himself swimming next to a whale shark, which just happens to be the largest fish on the planet.

It's a filter-feeding shark, so it's relatively harmless to us humans, outside of its sheer size.

Luckily, he has photographic evidence to prove that this actually happened and now has an awesome memory.

Malkin has logged plenty of memorable offseason moments on his Instagram account recently. Two days ago, he posted a picture holding up a pair of impressive barracudas. Two weeks ago, he posted a picture at the French Open
