Artemiy Panarin Named a Finalist for the Ted Lindsay Award

The Breadman is a finalist for the player’s choice for Most Valuable Player

After putting up 95 points in an abbreviated 69-game debut season on Broadway, Artemi Panarin was sure to be in the running for MVP awards this offseason. Well, this morning the NHLPA announced the three finalists for the Ted Lindsay award, given to the most valuable player as voted on by the players, which included Panarin.

The Bread Man joins Colorado’s wunderkind Nathan MacKinnon (93 points in 69 games) and Edmonton’s Leon Draisaitl (110 points in 71 games) as the the three finalists for the award and presumably the three finalists for the Hart trophy, which will be announced later this week.
