Artemi Panarin has been named the Third Star in the NHL for the month of October.
From the NHL: “Panarin ranked third in the NHL with 5-11—16 in 10 outings to guide New York to a 5-3-2 month (12 points). Aided by a pair of four-point performances (Oct. 13 at MIN: 1-3—4 and Oct. 17 vs. ANA: 1‑3—4), Panarin became the first Rangers player since Jaromir Jagr in 2006-07 (3-15—18) with 16 or more points through the team’s first 10 games of a season. Panarin – who tied for second in assists (11) and shared the League lead in power-play assists (7) and power-play points (8) – did so by finding the scoresheet in eight of his 10 appearances, capped by a three-point outing on his 31st birthday: Oct. 30 at ARI (1-2—3). The undrafted winner of the 2015-16 Calder Memorial Trophy has compiled 192-393—585 in 518 career NHL games, trailing only three players in points – McDavid (715), Patrick Kane (632) and Leon Draisaitl (623) – since making his League debut.”
