Artemi Panarin is NHL’s Second Star Of The Week

The NHL has announced that Artemi Panarin is the Second Star of the Week:

Panarin led the NHL with 4-6—10 and a +8 rating (tied) in four contests to power the Rangers (23-16-6, 52 points) to a sweep of their four-game series against the New Jersey Devils. Panarin scored once in a 3-0 win April 13, giving him a franchise-record 138 points (45-93—138) through his first 100 appearances with New York. He then collected multiple points in each of his next three games, notching 2-1—3 in a 4-0 triumph April 15, 1-3—4 (including the game-winning goal) in a 6-3 victory April 17 and two assists in a 5-3 win April 18. The 29-year-old Korkino, Russia, native and 2015-16 Calder Memorial Trophy winner ranks second in the League with 1.53 points per game this season, placing 10th overall with 16-36—52 in 34 outings.

Panarin is the third Ranger within the last month to be one of the Stars of the Week: Mika Zibanejad was named Third Star of the week on 3/22 and Adam Fox was named First Star of the Week on 3/29.
