So on the night he became the first rookie to score 20 goals, he decided to cap it off by picking up the hat trick. It was his first hat trick in the NHL.
There doesn't seem to be much he can't do for the Hawks this season. He just keeps producing. Playing with Patrick Kane helps but it seems that each player has really helped the other. Panarin has definitely been a factor for Kane having such a great season and vice versa. You could see their chemistry on Panarin's second goal. Kane didn't even seem to look when he made the backhand pass that went right to Artemi's wheel house.
Panarin missed a few games dur to injury recently but has been on fire since being back. It will be very hard for any rookie to catch Artemi is he continues like this. He was already ahead of Jack Eichel before tonight's game and now he extended that lead to 18 points.
"The Bread Man" just continues to get it done!
