Artemi Panarin has no plans to discuss a possible contract extension with the Columbus Blue Jackets during the season.
On Monday, Panarin's agent Daniel Milstein put out a statement: "We have informed the team that we are willing to discuss Artemi's future after the season. Our priority now is to focus on the rest of the season, trying to win a Stanley Cup for the CBJ & their fans. No additional comments will be made."
Panarin is in the final year of a two-year contract, earning $6 million this season.
