Panarin (lower body) will not return for the Rangers' final three games, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports. With the Rangers eliminated from playoff contention, there was little reason to rush Panarin back into the lineup, though the team hasn't offered any specifics on the nature of the winger's injury. In 42 contests this year, the 29-year-old Russian garnered just 17 goals, the first time he's failed to reach the 25-goal threshold in his six-year NHL career.
Panarin's (lower body) availability for the Rangers' final three games of the campaign is in jeopardy, Sportsnet reports. Panarin's injury isn't believed to be overly serious, but the Rangers only have three regular-season contests remaining and have already been eliminated from postseason contention, so there's no reason for the team to rush its star forward back if he isn't 100 percent healthy. If Panarin is in fact done for the year, he'll finish having racked up an impressive 17 goals and 58 points in just 42 contests.
Panarin (lower body) left Monday's tilt with Washington and will not return. Panarin got into an altercation with Tom Wilson that resulted in the latter receiving a 10-minute misconduct. The 29-year-old winger recorded two assists in 10:40 of ice time before exiting due to his injury. He'll be questionable for Wednesday's rematch with the Capitals until an update is available.
Panarin produced a power-play assist in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Sabres. Panarin set up a Mika Zibanejad goal late in the first period. This was a quiet performance by Panarin's recent standards. The Russian winger has racked up eight tallies and 16 helpers in his last 14 appearances. For the season, he's at 56 points (17 goals, 39 assists), 100 shots on net and a plus-17 rating in 38 contests.
Panarin notched two assists, one on the power play, in Friday's 4-1 win over the Flyers. The 29-year-old simply refuses to slow down. Panarin has delivered a multi-point performance in an incredible nine of the last 14 games, amassing nine goals and 26 points over that stretch, and on the season he now boasts 55 points (17 goals, 39 helpers) in only 37 contests.
