COLUMBUS, Ohio (24-7 News)--A Columbus based distillery is doing its part to try and keep unrestricted free-agent Artemi Panarin with the Blue Jackets next season and beyond.
High Bank Distillery in Grandview has purchased a billboard near their restaurant letting Panarin know he can get their signature vodka free for life if he re-signs with the Jackets.
The 27-year old Russian has scored 45-points in 39 games this year for Columbus but hasn't wanted to discuss contract terms during the season.
To get the player's attention, High Bank Distillery also posted a picture of the billboard on Twitter with the hashtag stay-thirsty-Panarin.
