Rangers star Artemi Panarin to return from leave of absence against Bruins


New York Rangers star Artemi Panarin will return to the ice on Saturday against the Boston Bruins after a nine-game leave of absence, according to USA Today’s Vince Mercogliano.

Panarin returned to practice on Wednesday after taking a leave of absence from the Rangers on Feb. 22 due to false allegations that he beat up an 18-year-old girl in Latvia in 2011. The allegations came after Panarin showed support for Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, Vladimir Putin’s opponent. 

The Rangers went 4-5-0 in Panarin’s absence. The 29-year-old has five goals and 13 assists in 14 games this season.
