Not old news: Artemi Panarin wins 2016 Calder Trophy
Jacob Tremblay announced that Chicago Blackhawks winger Artemi Panarin won the 2016 Calder Trophy as the rookie of the year for 2015-16.
The other finalists were Connor McDavid (Edmonton Oilers) and Shayne Gostisbehere (Philadelphia Flyers).
Panarin scored 30 goals and his 77 points topped all rookies by a healthy margin. His strong season generated bonuses that are putting quite the squeeze on the Blackhawks.
“Ghost” didn’t win, although he did get a boost at the bank:

As expected, it was a pretty close race. Panarin is the first Blackhawks player to win the Calder since Patrick Kane:
