Rangers' Panarin Taking Leave of Absence After Shocking Reports Surface

The New York Rangers will be without superstar Artemi Panarin for the foreseeable future as he's decided to take a leave of absence from the team. His decision comes on the heels of some disturbing reports stemming from a potential assault on a female back in 2011.

While the details are extremely limited Larry Brooks of the New York Post shared that tweet earlier today and it sounds like Panarin may head back to Russia to work out these legal troubles. 

So far this season the 29-year-old has recorded 18 points in 14 games and the Rangers currently sit with a 6-7-3 record, good for 24th overall in the league.
