Blackhawks F Panarin wins Calder Trophy
Panarin scored 77 points in 80 games during his debut season in North America, leading all rookies in goals (30) and assists (47).
Although Panarin played seven pro seasons back home before coming stateside, voters didn't object to his experience, awarding the trophy to a Chicago player for the first time since Patrick Kane won it in 2008.
McDavid was the No. 1 pick last summer. He scored 48 points in 45 games, his dynamite season shortened by two months thanks to a broken collarbone.
