Video: Panarin scores to become first NHL rookie to 20 goals this season

With Chris Kreider serving time in the penalty box and the Blackhawks on the PP, Artemi Panarin is able to take time at the top of the circles before launching the puck through a screen and scoring on Henrik Lundqvist.

Give Artemi Panarin 20 goals on the season.

The 24-year-old Chicago Blackhawks forward snapped a wrist shot on the power play, beating New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist to increase Chicago’s lead to two goals during the second period of Wednesday’s game.

Panarin becomes the first NHL rookie this season to hit 20 goals. He leads Detroit’s Dylan Larkin (18 goals), and Buffalo teammates Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart (17 goals). He’s also up to 55 points on the season.
