Rangers Roundup: Panarin shutout but makes 1st team All Star, former captain dies, and more news
Artemi Panarin was unfortunately shut out tonight in the NHL Awards show. Leon Draisaitl and his incredible 110 points season was just too much for the Breadman to overcome. The Oilers center took both the Hart Trophy and Ted Lindsay Award.
Artemi Panarin is still the Rangers MVP
Panarin finished 3rd in voting for the MVP, but was named to the NHL’s first team All Star which is quite the honor as well. The Breadman’s 95 points was everything Rangers fans dreamed of when he decided to sign on Broadway this past summer. He was no doubt, the MVP of the Blueshirts.
