The Skinny on Adam Pelech's 2nd assist

Some way to get your first two assists -- don't get announced for either of them.  Pelech credited with assist on Okposo ENG.

2 assists by a rookie ... against the Rangers.  Have to dig deep into the record books to find that.

As I just tweeted:

Pelech 1st #isles rookie defenseman w 2 assists vs #NYR since Malakhov (4/2/93- night Turgeon scored #50; Vlad assisted on that goal).
