Panik had a goal with an assist Monday.
He has three goals and two assists in three games.
Panik scored a power-play goal and recorded an assist during Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to Toronto.
After spending the 2014-15 campaign in a depth role with the Maple Leafs, Panik has carved out a scoring gig with Chicago and notched 25 goals and 29 points through 85 games the past two years. He's not a go-to asset in the majority of settings, but in deeper leagues, Panik projects to continue moving the fantasy needle. Playing with Jonathan Toews and Brandon Saad at even strength is a cushy setup, too.
Panik produced a goal and an assist in Thursday's 10-1 win over the Penguins.
Panik was one of six Blackhawks to record multiple points in this dominant season opener, with each of the other five racking up at least three points. The Slovakian forward got off to a scorching start last season before settling for a respectable 22 goals and 44 points, so he's no stranger to strong early performances. Panik rounded out the boxscore with four shots on goal and a plus-4 rating in this one, as well.
