The numbers and early accolades do tend to suggest that, though. Makar was named the third star by the league for the week ending Nov.
On Tuesday night, he scored his fifth goal of the season in a win at Winnipeg. It was a game in which goaltender Adam Werner stepped in after starter Pavel Francouz was hurt after 31 seconds. All Werner did was turn in a save shutout in his unexpected NHL debut. A notable stat: The last rookie defenseman with more points than Makar through their first 18 regular-season games was Hall of Famer Larry Murphy, who had 19 for Los Angeles in And another: His five straight games with at least a point to kick off the season matched the Avalanche record since for the longest stretch to begin a career.

Makar ended up with one goal and five assists in the postseason. My life in Canada began in when my family left Mexico City and moved to Toronto. As our plane touched the ground, I remember looking out the window and seeing dozens of planes boasting the maple leaf livery.
