After getting his week started with an assist in a 5-1 Thursday night loss to the Flint Firebirds, Panwar returned to the scoresheet on Saturday, picking up a pair of goals and an assist in a 5-4 overtime win over the league-leading Ottawa 67’s. Panwar earned his second straight first star honour on Sunday, recording a career-high five points including two goals and three helpers (2-3–5) as the Bulldogs defeated his former club, the Peterborough Petes, by a score of 7-4.

A 21-year-old native of Mississauga, Ont., Panwar has produced 15 goals, 20 assists and 35 points in 45 games between Hamilton and Peterborough this season.
