Artemi Panarin has 100 career points
He’s played 107 games.
With his 10th goal of the season, Artemi Panarin hit a very special milestone pretty early into his NHL career: he scored his 100th point.
In the 2015-16 season, Panarin won the Calder Trophy as the league’s rookie of the year; his 77 points that season were the most out of all rookies by a good 21 points. And this season, now that he’s hit 23 points in 27 games, well, there you have it: he has officially entered the triple digits.
And in just 107 games, too. Panarin is almost a point-per-game player at the NHL level, and that’s not easy to do - especially not at that sample size.
In 27 games, Panarin has scored multiple points - or roughly a quarter of the games he’s played in the NHL. In 47, he’s been held off the board completely. So it’d take a couple of games with some pretty big offensive explosions, and consistent scoring, but yeah, Panarin might have it in him to achieve and maintain point per game status.
Actually keeping up with it is another thing entirely - but one of his linemates has managed to do just that, so.
