Rookie Record?

What is the record for consecutive games with a point from the beginning of an NHL career?

I remember Statsny breaking the rookie record for consecutive games with a point last year (about 20) but it wasn't from the first game of his career.

I have to think Toews (now points in his first 7 games) has to be closing in on the record.

Maybe this is to some help...

Joe Malone got the longest consecutive goal-scoring streak from start of NHL career with 14 games in 1917-18 season (NHL's first season). I guess that should be somewhere around the record, if it isn't the record.

In more modern times, I remember that Alexander Ovechkin got the record for a #1 overall pick with points in first 8 games.

Now he's at nine games and the streak is still alive.

Did players technically count as rookies in 1917-18?
Many of them would have had long careers in other leagues prior to the NHL starting that season.
Was it Malone's first year?

That's a great question!

Later, for example Gretzky wasn't rookie for that very same reason - He played in WHA. Now-a-days for example vast majority of Russians are 100% professional before coming to NHL, still they are rookies.

What's the rule?

I don't think there really was a rookie classification until 32-33.

And it's really way to disputable what a rookie is and isn't until sometime after the 26-27 season, as, prior to that the NHL was not North America's only major pro league.

The streak's stilll alive at 10 games.

Funny how he has exactly one point in each game.
He must be aching for the 2-pt game!

Malkin had points in his first 6 games, but was held pointless and -1 in a 3-2 loss to San Jose in his 7th game.
