The Secret to the Softest Hands in the Show

Everyone saw the Columbus Blue Jackets rip up the first round of the playoffs and destroy one of the best hockey teams ever assembled in Tampa last week, in a fantastic sweep. Star forward Artemi Panarin was a key part of that series and shined, proving that the GM and management team in Columbus made the right move not moving the soon to be free agent at the trade deadline.

Watching Panarin handle the puck is a joy to watch and he really does have some of the softest hands in the whole show.  Well today on Instagram, “Bread” showed us what his secret training method is to keep improving his skills for the NHL.  

His adorable training partner, his doggo.

And even though the dog probably isn’t thrilled that it’s got a hoodie on (don’t dress your dogs as humans people), this little pup is having the time of their life.

Go Jackets, knock off the Bruins!
