"It's not only his offense that has made Shaw a fan favorite," said the narrator in the video tribute for Shawk's award.

If you were expecting Artemi Panarin to slow down a little at the IIHF World Hockey Championships after a long and successful NHL rookie season, think again.

We do not expect Panarin to experience a sophomore jinx next season and are recommedning him as an early second-round draft pick in hockey pools regardless of format.
