Vulgar Statistics: Rookie Of The Year – Fast Starts?

10/17/11

I figured that with Luke Adam’s blazing hot start on the Sabres top line, it might be fun to take a look at the last five rookie of the year forwards and see how their pace compares to Adam’s.  Since the season is only four games old, there really isn’t much more to talk about.

2010-2011 – Jeff Skinner

Through Four Games: 0 goals, 2 assists

Total Production: 31 goals, 32 assists

 

2007-2008 – Patrick Kane

Through Four Games: 0 goals, 3 assists

Total Production: 21 goals, 51 assists

 

2006-2007 – Evgeni Malkin

Through Four Games: 4 goals, 2 assists

Total Production: 33 goals, 52 assists

 

2005-2006 – Alexander Ovechkin

Through Four Games: 3 goals, 2 assists

Total Production: 52 goals, 54 assists

 

2001-2002 – Dany Heatley

Through Four Games: 1 goal, 2 assists

Total Production: 26 goals, 41 assists

 

Luke Adam

Through Four Games: 3 goals, 3 assists

 

Final Thoughts: Mr. Adam is in pretty good company with his gaudy stat line this season.  It remains to be seen if he can keep anywhere near that level of production, but if he continues to play with Pominville and Vanek, I’d say it’s pretty likely.
