Mikael Granlund had ok debut. Got a goal and was responsible defensively and even threw himself in front of the puck. When the season goes on and he gets to hold the puck more and knows his linemates better... good things might happen.
I liked Leo Komarov's (Leafs) first game...8 registered hits and was already doing the pest job and went to the net...almost had a goal. He was talking something to Galchenyuk and by the look of Alex's face it wasn't nice
Rickard Rakell (Ducks), ok debut..
Komarov had a really great 1st game...Probably the best out of all them on the OP's list. He did exactly what we all expected him to do. Hit and chirp Les Habitants. He actually almost scored on a couple opportunities as well.
EDIT: Actually, I just remembered Huberdeau had a 3 point game, so his was probably the best.
Well, I tried to put up some stats last night and soon realized it was taking me forever and it'd be pretty impossible to update daily, so I just used the OP to list any player that is a rookie that has played in at least one game this year or that has made his NHL debut this year (after 26 years of age a player is not considered a rookie, even if they're just playing their first NHL game).
Discuss anything having to do with rookies or debuts here.
Jake Muzzin played 11 games for the Kings in the 2010-2011 season, but made his return to the NHL this season, filling in for the injured Matt Greene. He scored his first NHL goal on January 26th against Phoenix.
D Zach Redmond makes his NHL debut with the Winnipeg Jets tonight. Born in Houston, Texas, but grew up in Michigan. AHL All-Star as a rookie last season for St. John's, was named an AHL All-Star again this year, but did not appear since he was in Winnipeg (has been a healthy scratch the entire season so far). Played college at Ferris State. 24 years old.
