Artemi Panarin, Chris Kreider, and Jesper Fast were all recipients of the NY Rangers team awards, announced today.

Panarin as Team MVP was a no-brainer. Fast seems to be a shoo-in for the Players’ Player Award lately, which makes you wonder how in question his future is in New York.
Kreider winning the Good Guy Award is interesting. I get the impression he’s most likely the next captain of the team. Yes, that means over Mika Zibanejad. It makes sense with the long-term extension as well.
