The Puck Stops Here

Early Season Rookie Of The Year

It is still early in the season but we have a frontrunner for the Calder Trophy.  It is no surprise that first overall pick in 2016, Auston Matthews of the Toronto Maple Leafs is the early Calder Trophy leader.  Matthews has 5 goals and 8 points.  This leaves him one goal and one point behind the NHL lead.

Matthews is off to an outstanding start to his career.  If he can keep this up he will go down as one of the all-time greats in NHL history.  It is too early to make such a prediction.  We will have to wait and see how Matthews reacts to adversity when it comes in his NHL career, but so far he looks great.  He is the Calder Trophy leader at this early point in the season.
