Stastny Ties NHL Rookie Record

by Staff Writer / Colorado Avalanche
BUFFALO, N.Y. - Colorado Avalanche center Paul Stastny extended his point streak to 17 games on Wednesday night, tying the NHL rookie record set by Teemu Selanne in 1992-93.

Selanne notched a point in the final 17 games of his Calder Trophy winning season with the Winnipeg Jets. Stastny's 17-game streak has now surpassed his father, Peter Stastny (16 games in 1980-81), for the longest scoring streak by a rookie in franchise history.

Stastny will attempt to set a new league record this Sunday when the Avalanche travels to Minnesota to take on the Wild (1:00 p.m. MT, Altitude TV).
