BUFFALO, N.Y. - With an assist on Milan Hejduk’s goal at 9:58 of the first period tonight in Buffalo, Colorado Avalanche center Paul Stastny extended his point streak to 17 games, tying the NHL rookie record set by Teemu Selanne in 1992-93.
Selanne notched a point in the final 17 games of his Calder Trophy winning season with the Winnipeg Jets. Stastny’s 17-game streak has now surpassed his father, Peter Stastny (16 games in 1980-81), for the longest scoring streak by a rookie in franchise history.
Stastny will attempt to set a new league record this Sunday when the Avalanche travels to Minnesota to take on the Wild.
