Before you read this story about Blackhawks forward Artemi Panarin, I just wanna say that I’ve talked to a couple of people that are close to Panarin who gave me information about him. I will not reveal who my sources are.
Artemi Panarin had a pretty good 2016-2017 season for the Chicago Blackhawks. He played in 82 regular season games, and had 31 goals, and 43 assists. In the playoffs Panarin didn’t really have any impact. The Predators swept the Blackhawks in four games and Panarin only had one point. Panarin was very upset by the way he played in postseason, per source. He has been working really hard this off-season to get into better shape. Artemi is currently playing for Russia at the World Championship. The biggest thing that Panarin is working on this off-season is his technique. Panarin and Patrick Kane have a really good relationship. Kane is one of the closest to Artemi along with Duncan Keith. Artemi and Kane have a fun relationship and they always tease each other and play fun games together. Both players played on the same line a lot during the 2016 season and they both did a good job helping each other score some goals. According to a person close to Artemi Panarin, Panarin loves Chicago and the Chicago Blackhawks. He recently signed a two year deal with the Blackhawks but source told me that he would like to finish his career with the Hawks. Artemi Panarin is really happy that he play’s for the Chicago Blackhawks.
