Distillery offers Russian hockey star unlimited vodka for life if he returns to Columbus

Columbus Blue Jackets free-agent-to-be Artemi Panarin is being pulled in a lot of directions as he considers where he will play next season.

A Columbus, Ohio, distillery is offering Panarin an unlimited supply of vodka for the rest of his life if he re-ups with the Blue Jackets.

High Bank Distillery, a local restaurant in Columbus, has promised Panarin an unlimited lifetime supply of its signature vodka if he extends his contract.

The restaurant launched the campaign under the hashtag #StayThirstyPanarin, pitching it on its Instagram page.

The 27-year-old Russian standout has produced a team-leading 45 points in 40 games so far this season. He will become an unrestricted free agent this coming summer.

But the vodka offer might not work. His reported top choices are the New York Rangers and the Tampa Bay Lightning.
