Not true. From the NHL website itself: "The Calder Memorial Trophy is an annual award given to the player selected as the most proficient in his first year of competition in the National Hockey League."

RNH was the "most proficient". He played enough games for his sample size to be considered reliable.

And on a side note, his sophomore slump hasn't been as bad as Landeskog's or Henrique's.
