Blue Jackets leading scorer Artemi Panarin has fired his agent, Dan Milstein, in favor of Paul Theofanous, the agent of teammate Sergei Bobrovsky, and said he will test free agency this summer.

Panarin issued a statement Friday that read, "I have decided to hire Paul Theofanous as my agent. He is very experienced, and I'm confident he will serve my interests best going forward."
