2022 Report Card: Artemiy Panarin

Three seasons into his huge seven-year contract worth an average of about $11.6 million per year, Artemiy Panarin has already proven to be perhaps the best free-agent signing in New York Rangers history. In his first season with the club, the Bread Man scored a career-high 32 goals while adding a whopping 63 assists, for a total of 95 points (then also a career high) in just 69 games, thanks to the COVID-truncated 2019-20 campaign. He followed that up with 17 goals and 41 assists 42 games in 2020-21; this was yet another shortened season for the league as a whole, but also for Panarin personally as he had to deal with a wild situation stemming from Russia.
