More from Elias on Grabner

From Elias:
<<Grabner's goal was his 16th in 15 games since January 15-the highest goal
total by an NHL rookie over a 15-game span since Teemu Selanne notched 16
goals in 15 games for Winnipeg in 1992-93. The only other Islanders rookie to
do that was Mike Bossy in 1977-78.>>

From Eric:

Selanne actually had several streaks of at least 16 goals in 15 games that
season (he finished with 76 goals in 84 games). He had 17 goals over the final
15 games that season, but actually had two (overlapping) streaks in which he
managed 24 goals in a 15-game span.
