If just counting SEL games, heck, Silfverberg must have closer to 200 and is still counted as rookie...!
Whereas Silfverberg, Ekholm, etc only played in the NHL and not the AHL... Could that be the cutoff, no games in prior AHL seasons? Which in that case kind of would reflect the definition of "rookie"... as in contrast to the swedish version
