Well, the top five rookie scorers are:

Timofei Shishkanov - Milwaukee ( Nashville )
Kyle Wellwood - St.John's ( Toronto )
Noah Clarke - Manchester ( Los Angeles )
Garrett Stafford - Cleveland ( San Jose )
Michel Ouellet - WB/S ( Pittsburgh )

Some of the best rookie goalies are Kari Lehtonen, Hannu Toivonen, Wade Dubielewicz and Ryan Miller ( I think he's a rookie ).

Most are names you would expect, like Shishkanov, Lehtonen, Toivonen, and others are surprises like Clarke and Dubielewicz.

What about Suglobov? He's been injured, but deserves some consideration.

Alex Perezhogin is 1 pt behind them, and Chris Higgins 2 pts behind, and both have been on a roll lately.

My pick would be Shishkanov, unless he's injured, cause the game against the Dogs he was taken off the ice in strecher.

It's been a very strong year for AHL rookies. Doug Lynch made the mid season all star team and yet hasn't been noticed because of the flood of really good young players.

A very good crop.

Michel Oullet really came out of nowhere to be the Baby Pens MVP(IMO).

Chris Kunitz was leading the AHL in rookie scoring untill he got a long recall. He's bound to get some consideration.

He won't win though. The winner is Kari Lehtonen, because he's just been awesome in his first pro season. If there is a season next year, the Calder trophy practically has his name on it for 04-05.

I think Suglobov and Roy have the best PPG's in the league. Suglonov got injured in January and Roy called up. Thats who the two best are in the time played.

Perez had 2 more points last night. No doubt he has been the best rookie the last month.

I'm partisan... but Perezhogin has been masterful over the last 20 games or so, averaging a PPG. Recently he's been on a tear... With the ups and downs that Hamilton has had this season, especially with such a young team, the kid has really adjusted well for someone who can't speak to anyone on his team yet (except Svitov when he was there). He may yet catch the leaders if he continues to improve shift-by-shift.

Ouellet has been one of the biggest suprises for WBS and the AHL altogether. Let me state this in terms. Michel Ouellet last year scored 20 goals and tallied 46 points in 56 games Wheeling (ECHL affiliate) than his production this year in WBS (which is 27 goals and 45 points in 68 games) Yes, he is on a cold streak in AHL terms (7 goals in last 20 games) But I think he can pull through for the AHL Rookie of the Year Award. Just watch, in 1-3 years, you'll be hearing his name get the call in the NHL.

Gotta toss in some of the local boys from Cleveland, I think they all are having amazing seasons. Craig Valette, Grant Stevenson, Jon DiSalvatore, Marcel Goc, Ryane Clowe, and Tomas Plihal all have potential written all over them.

Hope Clowe has a good career..nice to see a sucessful Newfie NHL'er.
Nfld has been producing a number of bright talents in the past 5 years...Watch out for Little Ryder, Ryan Mior and this year draftee Dan LaCosta in the near future.

I would say Matt Foy but the guy went and pulled his freaking groin and then the Wild decided not to spend any FREAKING MONEY on their AHL team to give Foy and Hannula the support!

On another note and this will sound funny but Derek Boogaard had an awesome season for a guy who wasn't even suppose to be even close to AHL level and people whined that he wasn't fit for the ECHL. No one wanted to go after Boogaard this much this year.

Oh yeah HEID SUCKS! I hope to God he gets better like Michalek and Reitz did this year...errr...well...I take that back but I hope to God, Heid can put his game together. Even Fortunus got the nod over Heid in the playoff game!

With that said, I have high hopes for Heid and hope he is just taking his time to get adjusted to the tempo of the game and I hope he gets a better surrounding cast next year.

Oh and Hannula had an awesome year for a 7th/8th round pick before Wallin left and he kept on getting injured.
