Artemi Panarin accomplishes a pair of feats that no New York Ranger has done before.

Since joining the New York Rangers in the summer of 2019 as a free agent, Artemi Panarin has established himself as not only one of the most gifted offensive players in the National Hockey League, but one of the most gifted in all of Rangers history.

On Saturday, Panarin continued to establish himself as one of the most dynamic offensive stars in Rangers history when, for the third consecutive season in a row, he broke the 90 point plateau with a multi-point first period against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Panarin, who came into the game with 88 points on the season, would add both a goal and an assist to his season totals to reach the 90 point plateau relatively early on in the game.

By reaching the milestone yet again, Panarin becomes the first player in the history of the Rangers franchise to have 4 seasons of 90 points or more as well as the first Ranger to achieve the milestone in 3 consecutive seasons. Panarin failed to achieve the milestone in the shortened 2020-21 NHL season, but was well on pace to achieve the feat with 58 points over 42 games that year.

Panarin is already well on his way to establishing himself as one of the most talented Rangers forwards of all time, and he appears to have plenty of gas left in the tank.
