Rookie of the Month November

December 2, 2005-- He's already gaining the reputation of being one of the hardest hitters in the NHL, and in Calgary everybody is impressed with Dion Phaneuf. Leading the league in all rookie scoring for a defenceman with three goals and six assists, Phaneuf is carving out a place for himself on the list of top NHL defencemen. For his efforts in November, the NHL has selected Phaneuf as their Rookie of the Month. Such is the faith that the Flames have in Phaneuf that he regularly logs more than twenty minutes on the ice per game. Proof that selecting him ninth overall in the 2003 draft was a smart move by Flames management, one that has already paid off huge in his rookie year!
