Panarin has already set new career highs in goals (32) and assists (63) through the first 69 games of the 2019-20 campaign. It's been an absolutely monstrous season for Panarin, who has also already tied his career high in power-play points (24) while working on New York's top unit. The Rangers have to be happy with their decision to sign the right-handed winger to a huge seven-year, $81.5 contract last offseason, as Panarin is still just 28 years old and should continue to produce at an elite level for most, if not all of his lengthy deal. If the NHL ends up resuming regular-season play, Panarin will undoubtedly eclipse the 100-point threshold for the first time in his career this year.
Panarin picked up an assist and fired six shots on goal in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Avalanche. Panarin has racked up 10 assists in eight games, during which he hasn't tallied a goal of his own. The Russian winger now has 95 points (32 goals, 63 helpers), 209 shots on net and a plus-36 rating in 69 games during his first season as a Ranger.
Panarin dished out three assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 6-5 win over the Capitals. Panarin set up Mika Zibanejad with the extra man in the first period, then sprung Zibanejad with a perfect stretch pass in overtime, which the Swede converted for his fifth goal of the game to win it. The Russian winger fit in an assist to Anthony DeAngelo in between his dishes to Zibanejad, as Panarin didn't take long to get back on his horse after having a 13-game point streak snapped by the Blues in his last game.
Panarin picked up two power-play assists in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Flyers. All three New York tallies came with the man advantage, but so did three of Philly's, plus one shorthanded marker one at even strength. Panarin has now found the scoresheet in 13 straight games, piling up five goals and 19 points along the way, and the surge has carried him to his first career 90-point campaign.
Panarin scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Islanders. He opened the scoring late in the first period, then set up Mika Zibanejad for the winner 28 seconds into OT. Panarin is riding a 10-game point streak during which he's piled up five goals and 14 points, while Tuesday's tally was his 32nd of the season, establishing a new career high for the 28-year-old.
