Stepan Part of a Strong Rookie Class

stepanWes Goldstein at CBS Sports takes a look at the rookies besides Calder Trophy front runners Jeff Skinner (CAR), Logan Couture (SJ) and Michael Grabner (NYI) who are having fine first seasons in the NHL…

Derek Stepan: Debuting with an opening night hat trick wasn’t exactly an omen of things to come because he needed nearly six weeks to score again. Still a 20-goal rookie campaign is nothing to sneeze at. Stepan has eased into his role as a versatile center by coach John Tortorella, spending most of his time on second or third lines, but playing comfortably on the top unit when injuries or circumstances have dictated.

…nice to see Stepan getting some respect around the league. 20 goals during a rookie campaign is very impressive.

…how is Sauer & McD not on this list?
