Before the NHL season was put on pause, Rangers forward Artemi Panarin was having an unbelievable first season in New York.
The left winger was third in the NHL in points with 95 while tied for second in assists with 63. With the Rangers surging towards a potential Wild Card spot (just two points back when the action was stopped), Panarin and Mika Zibanejad were leading the way.
Now, Panarin is like the rest of us: at home and doing a good job of practicing social distancing.
So what's an elite player like Panarin to do during a time like this? Turns out, the answer is work around the house.
First, Panarin made a bird house:

In that last video, Panarin's friend even calls him "employee of the week" in Russian.
There may literally be nothing that Panarin can't do.
