January 2016 – Through 53 games of his inaugural NHL campaign, Panarin has been everything the Blackhawks could have hoped for and more. He lead all NHL rookies in goals, assists and points, and trails only linemate Patrick Kane in points on a loaded Blackhawks' roster. It will be interesting to see how he holds down the stretch and into the playoffs, as he is accustomed to the shorter seasons played in the KHL. Still, Panarin has proved doubters wrong at every turn and remains the favourite to win the Calder Trophy as the Rookie of the Year. Matt Donohue </
