last 9 games: 7 G, 6 A, 13 P (1.44 P/G)

In the past, some great Europeans have also taken time to get going when moving to the NHL:

Pavel Bure
first 13 games: 4 G, 1 A, 5 P (0.38 P/G)
last 52 games: 30 G, 25 A, 55 P (1.06 P/G)

Jaromir Jagr
first 34 games: 7 G, 5 A, 12 P (0.35 P/G)
last 46 games: 20 G, 25 A, 45 P (0.98 P/G)
Bure was 19 and Jagr was like 17? Kane is not much older either though
