*Recorded first career NHL assist vs. CAR (10/24)
*Skated season-best 15:30 at BUF (10/14)
*Tallied first career NHL goal vs. DAL (10/12, Dan Ellis)
*Made NHL debut vs. ANA (10/5) and skated 10:22, becoming the second-youngest defenseman to make his NHL debut with Wild (19 years, 72 days) behind Nick Schultz in 2001 (19 years, 50 days).
We don't have any excuses tonight. Excuses are for losers. We've played with five defensemen before and it didn't affect us. We just had a bad second period and it cost us the game. We have to look in the mirror and blame ourselves.
— Bruins coach Claude Julien on his team's play with the loss of defenseman Johnny Boychuk
