Artem Anisimov notched two goals and two assists in a 7-4 victory versus the Philadelphia Flyers.

Artem Anisimov has struggled out of the gate.

We don't know if his surgically-repaired wrist is bothering him but Anisimov has been terrible in the faceoff circle and has taken a number of foolish penalties. As well, he has recorded only an assist in three games despite playing alongside Patrick Kane and Artemi Panarin. We expect Anisimov to improve, but if his wrist is actually hurting, his rebound to last-season's level of production could be in doubt.
