    VANCOUVER New York Islanders T-Shirts Womens , British Columbia — Elias Pettersson did something Thursday that no other Vancouver Canucks first-year player has done since 1999.Pettersson, a 19-year-old Swede, was named the National Hockey League’s rookie of the month for October. He became the first Canuck to earn the honor since Peter Schaefer pulled off the feat 19 years ago.Not bad considering that Pettersson missed six games with a concussion in his first month as an NHLer.Article continues below ...“There’s a lot of good rookies and I’m honored to win it,” Pettersson told reporters after practice at the University of B.C.“I think I started very well, and when I got back (from the concussion) the guys helped me continue to play my game. … I felt like I didn’t miss anything.”Pettersson leads the injury-riddled Canucks (8-6-0) in goals and points heading into Friday’s home game against the Colorado Avalanche (7-4-2). The youngster has seven goals and three assists in just eight games. He already has a pair of two-goal nights.The latest twin-pack came Monday in Vancouver’s 5-2 home-ice win over Minnesota, a team that had won five straight games beforehand. Pettersson scored the winning goal on a one-timer and netted an insurance marker on breakaway, which resulted after he blocked a shot.He has adjusted well to the NHL after concerns were raised about his ability to play center and handle the more physical game prevalent on North America’s smaller rinks than on Europe’s larger ones. For the most part, he has handled the rough going with relative ease. The concussion occurred when he was hit from behind and slammed to the ice by Washington defenseman Mike Matheson, who received a two-game suspension for his misdeeds.Pettersson has also been a mainstay at center, his natural position, after Green contemplated starting the season with him on the wing to help him acclimatize to the NHL.“We were hopeful that he would be able to play at a decent level and obviously hopeful that he could play center,” said Green.“The fact that he’s picked up the position over here — as quick as he has — has really shown to me that he has good understanding of the game. … That’s the part of the game that’s hard to grasp and to teach, and with him we haven’t had to worry about that.”On Friday New York Islanders Hoodies Womens , the Canucks coach and his charges will likely have to worry about Colorado’s top line of Mikko Rantanen, Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog. All three rank among the NHL’s top scorers. Accordingly, the Avs are contending for first place in the Central Division.The Calgary Flames managed to keep the trio largely in check Thursday night, coming back to beat the Avs 6-5. Although Avs coach Jared Bednar does not have to worry about his top unit most nights, he has concerns about his other lines due to injuries to Tyson Jost, J.T. Compher and Sven Andrighetto, who are relied upon for secondary scoring. As a result, Bednar wants some younger players to shine.“It’s a great opportunity for a lot of those guys,” Bednar told reporters Thursday morning in Calgary.Bednar singled out center Vladislav Kamenev, who moved up to the second line for Thursday’s contest, as one player who needs to provide more offensive production.“I agree with that,” said Kamenev, 22 New York Islanders Hats Womens , who has logged eight games. “I have to play better offensively — be with the puck more maybe and make plays. (With guys injured) I have to use that chance.”He did Thursday night, scoring his first NHL career goal. Just as the Detroit Red Wings are finally beginning to gain some traction in the NHL season, the New Jersey Devils look to have lost their way.These two teams currently headed in opposite directions will clash on the ice Thursday at Little Caesars Arena.The Wings, 1-7-2 in their first 10 games, have won two straight. They beat the Dallas Stars 4-2 on Sunday at home and posted a 5-3 road triumph Tuesday over the Columbus Blue Jackets, rallying after frittering away a 3-0 third-period lead.Article continues below ...“I think against Dallas was probably our most complete game,” Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard told Detroitredwings.com. “We got off to a great start in a building lately that hasn’t been that friendly to us. But we’ve still got to figure out a way, when we’re up 3-0, to not be letting teams creep back in.”The Devils arrive in Detroit for the second game of a seven-game road trip off a dreadful opening act. They squandered a 2-0 lead and were drubbed 8-3 by the Tampa Bay Lightning.“We’re not a team that can play 90 percent or 80 percent,” Devils center Nico Hischier told NJ.com. “We have to be at our best to beat teams. Everyone in this room knows his role and has to play that way.”New Jersey is 1-3-1 in the last five games and has allowed 24 goals over that span. Cory Schneider spelled Keith Kincaid in goal during the third period, seeing his first game action since undergoing knee surgery in May.“Hopefully again I can come in and play well and earn the right to play more and we can have two reliable options in net,” Schneider said. “We have 15 games (in November), and December’s pretty busy Custom New York Islanders Jerseys , so it only gets harder from here on out.”The Wings scored nine goals in their last two games after netting just 20 goals through their first 10 games. Much of the recent production has been provided by their younger players. Dylan Larkin scored twice in Tuesday’s win, and Tyler Bertuzzi netted the game winner off a feed from rookie defenseman Dennis Cholowski.Anthony Mantha, Detroit’s goal-scoring leader last season with 24, has scored in consecutive games after netting one goal in the first 10 games. Rookie Michael Rasmussen scored his first NHL goal in Tuesday’s win.“It’s great,” Howard said. “We need the younger guys to drive the bus here for us and the last couple of games they’ve done that.”It wasn’t all roses for Detroit. In the last two games, they’ve lost all three members of their second forward line to injury. Frans Nielsen and Andreas Athanasiou didn’t play Tuesday, and Thomas Vanek was hurt early in the game.“I would say Vani’s out,” Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said. “If I were to give an estimate, it would be 2-3 weeks. Is it longer or shorter? We’ll find out when he gets examined.”Nielsen won’t play Thursday, while Athanasiou is a game-time decision.“I think we’ll call two forwards up,” Blashill said. “If AA (Athanasiou) can play, then we’ll call one. We’ll know more on AA tomorrow but I think there’s a good chance we’ll call two forwards up.”
