New Jersey Devils rookie Sergey Kalinin added goal scoring to his resume notching his first NHL goal.

By Patrick Comia

A bright spot for the Devils this season was one that was not expected.

Heading into the season, the talk was centered around if rookie Pavel Zacha would make the team out of training camp.

However, the Devils 2015 first round draft choice wasn’t able to outlast the final cuts, and was returned to his junior team.

But, an unsuspecting surprise might be the talk of the team this season.

Sergey Kalinin, a rookie signed as a free agent from Russia, has been starting to make a name for himself, and is becoming a force for New Jersey with his big 6’3 frame.

In the second period of the Devils and Canucks game, he added to his future with the team by scoring his first NHL goal against Vancouver goalie Ryan Miller.

As Bill Pidto would say:

Welcome to the National Hockey League!

Not bad kid, not bad!
