  1. Congrats to SB for finding him in the KHL and signing him. I hope he will be one of the Hawk’s core players for a long time! Incidentally by being on the same line he helped Patrick Kane find his potential in becoming the top scorer in the NHL. Kudos to the Hawks management!

  2. Congratulations to Artemi Panarin! May both he and Kane continue to wreak havoc around the league the same way we were privileged to watch this past season. It can only get better. What a find by Bowman, and give Panarin credit for choosing a quality organization to play for.

    Lets Go Hawks!

  3. Yoda – I’ll hazard a guess that it was 2 guys who thought he shouldn’t be eligible because of his KHL experience.
