On March 3, 1973, Islander rookie Dave Hudson recorded a goal and four assists in the Isles' 9-3 victory over (ironically) Vancouver. It was Stick Night at the Coliseum (and a future statistiican should have taken note of Hudson's feat--it was my first NHL game).
Elias is also noting that BryanTrottier had two five-point games as a rookie. The Isles' guide gives him credit for one (10/11/75).
Forever 1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: forever1940.blogspot.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
