Matt Martin experiences the VMA’s

He might be tough on the ice but Islanders forward Matt Martin tried his hand as a reporter at last night’s MTV VMA’s at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. He got the royal treatment covering the big event with BCTV Brooklyn reporter Alyonka Larionov. Larionov is the lovely daughter of former Russian great Igor Larionov. She has over 55,000 followers on Twitter. A few more follows and she’ll hit 56 K. No surprise that she boasts over 30,000 more followers.

Judging from this Martin tweet, he had a ball with Larionov on the red carpet. He also got to meet pop star Katy Perry. Martin also gave a shout out to menswear designer John Varvatos for his attire. The night started with Larionov searching for a co-host. A cute little tease leading up to the festivities. Looked more like a date with some extra accessories.

Also want to thank @johnvarvatos for hooking me up with my suit last night
