Tyler Johnson and Ondrej Palat have been named to the NHL’s 2014 All-Rookie team, giving the Tampa Bay Lightning such an honor after finishing the season among the top three in scoring for first-year players.
Nathan MacKinnon,who took home the Calder Trophy earlier in the evening, finished atop the rookie class in scoring with 24 goals and 63 points for the Colorado Avalanche. MacKinnon and Johnson each finished with the same number of goals. The Avalanche qualified for the post-season, winning the Central Division during the regular season.
MacKinnon, still only 18 years of age, was dynamic in the playoffs even though the Avalanche lost in the opening round. He finished with 10 points in seven post-season games.
After emerging on to the NHL scene in the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs for the Boston Bruins, Torey Krug was named to the All-Rookie team on defense, as was Hampus Lindholm of the Anaheim Ducks. In goal, Frederik Andersen, also from the Ducks, made the squad.
