Panarin was body-slammed to the ice by Tom Wilson on Monday night. Wilson, a repeat offender was only fined by the NHL. It has been a trying season for the Russian superstar, who dealt with apparently baseless accusations from nearly a decade ago in Russia and missed time for personal reasons. He finishes the 2021 season with 58 points (17 goals, 41 assists) in 42 games.
Trouba only appeared in 38 games, posting two goals and 10 assists. Lindgren produced one goal and 15 assists in 51 games this season.
