Stastny Breaks NHL Rookie Record

by Staff Writer / Colorado Avalanche

ST. PAUL, Minn. - With a first period assist on Sunday afternoon in Minnesota, Colorado Avalanche center Paul Stastny extended his point streak to 18 games, breaking the NHL rookie record set by Teemu Selanne in 1992-93.

Stastny also set an NHL rookie record for consecutive road games with a point at 14. Paul's uncle, Marian Stastny, held the previous record of 13 straight road games with a point set in 1981-82 with the Quebec Nordiques.

Stastny's 18-game point streak is the longest by an Avalanche player since the team moved to Denver in 1995-96 and tied for the third longest in franchise history. The only two players to record longer streaks were Mats Sundin (30 games in 1992-93) and Peter Stastny (19 games in 1983-84). Paul Stastny owns the longest scoring streak in the NHL this season and the longest by any player since Dany Heatley had a point in 22 consecutive games for the Ottawa Senators from Oct. 5 - Nov. 29, 2005.
