Rangers Roundup: Panarin tells Columbus talks are over for now and Zuccarello update
Artemi Panarin will not be signing an extension with the Blue Jackets for now. Per his agent, they are not going to discuss contract during the season.
The Jackets will have another chance this summer, but it looks like Panarin will likely test the UFA market.
You have to think that Panarin and his agent decided this route during the All Star Break. Now the speculation on whether the Jackets keep or move Panarin at the deadline will begin.
