“We fully support Panarin and the Rangers.

We continue to monitor the situation, "- quotes the words of the league journalist Dan Rosen in his Twitter.

Recently, the former coach of Vityaz Podolsk, Andrey Nazarov, told how Panarin beat an 18-year-old girl in Riga while playing for the club in 2011.

In the current NHL regular season, Panarin played 14 matches and scored 18 points (five goals and 13 assists).
