In Artemi Panarin's first season in Columbus, he left plenty of things behind in Chicago. Though he's gotten off to a hot start in the Union Blue, his number one fan hadn't seen him in Columbus yet. Artemi changed that October 21 against the Kings.

After Saturday night's game against the Kings, Panarin spent Sunday relaxing, and by relaxing we mean doing stick work with his dog.

Let it be known that Artemi's doggo has quite the poke check. Sources say he might get a real look on the blue line as he gets older.

Finally regarding our Breadman, can you guess what Artemi would like to be for Halloween?

Stay tuned - this costume possibility may be developing. 

Elsewhere around the team,Sergei Bobrovsky hosted a group of families from the Make-A-Wish foundation in his suite for the Kings game.

Bob is a really cool guy. I mean just really cool. He also took the time to stop and meet a new friend while on the road in Minnesota.

Hi Mason! We hope to see you at a game soon.

After Canadian rockstar Gord Downie died from his battle with terminal brain cancer, some native Canadiens around the team remembered the legend close to them.

Scott Harrington, from the same hometown of Kingston, Ontario as the late Downie, took the time to reflect as well.

RIP Gord Downie. Couldn't be more proud to be Canadian and from Kingston. Your music changed our lives forever.
