The Chicago Blackhawks had an incredible giveaway Sunday night at United Center. The franchise gave away Artemi Panarin Bread Man bobbleheads to the first 10,000 fans in attendance.
Here’s a closer look.

Panarin first earned the moniker last season.
“We call him the Bread Man,” coach Joel Quenneville said of Panarin after the Blackhawks’ 2015 season opener.
Quenneville explained that the Russian forward’s last name reminded the Hawks of the restaurant chain Panera Bread. There was also another meaning. “It looked like he had the puck all night,” Quenneville said.
Not only is the Panarin bobblehead ridiculous, it’s also in serious demand. On eBay, Bobble Artemi was fetching close to $100 in auctions ending on Monday. And no wonder. After two more assists last night, Panarin was named the NHL’s first star of the week today.
Russian Machine Never Breaks is not associated with the Washington Capitals; Monumental Sports, the NHL, or its properties. Not even a little bit.
