Artemiy Panarin has been the Rangers’ best skater this season by far and his play at the end of 2019 got the Breadman some league-wide recognition. Panarin was named the 3rd star for the month of December after putting up 10 goals and 12 assists for 22 points in 14 games. Florida’s Jonathan Huberdreau was named the 1st star while Pittsburgh’s Tristan Jarry earned 2nd star honors. Along with being named the 3rd star of December, Panarin was also named to 1st All-Star Game.
Hopefully this is just the first of many NHL honors Panarin earns with the Rangers.
