And there are plenty of rookies older than him just making their mark on the NHL. Players who didn't light it up prior to this year.
Michael Grabner scored 34 goals this year in his rookie NHL season. He was 23 years old. He was placed on waivers in the beginning of the season and claimed by the Islanders.
Just one example, but you need to show patience. Maybe Grachev doesn't turn into an NHL player, but you sure as hell shouldn't be making that decision at this point in his development.
