McAvoy not thinking about hitting ‘rookie wall’

Words like "brilliant" and "phenom" have been tossed around with great regularity through the first half-season of 20-year-old Charlie McAvoy's NHL career and with good reason, given a consistent performance that belies his rookie status. McAvoy leads all NHL rookies by a wide margin with 22:54 of ice time per game and has been strong at both ends of the ice with five goals and 21 points along with a plus-14 rating in 40 games. Rookies McAvoy, Danton Heinen and Jake DeBrusk have been a big part of Boston's first-half success story, and they'll need to continue that level of contribution if Boston is going to finish strong in a grueling second half of the season.
