      Gang-
       
          Trying to understand something on rookies...
       
          Scott Upshall has played in the NHL before last season, but never in enough games to make the disk. He is on the newest disk, but doesn't have a rookie rating.
       
          What exactly is the criteria for a player to earn an X in the rookie field?
       
          Is it first time disk players?
       
          Thanks-
       
      Bill

      From NHL.com : To be considered a rookie, a player must not have played in 25 or more NHL games in any preceding seasons, nor in six or more NHL games in each

        From NHL.com :
        To be considered a rookie, a player must not have played in 25 or more NHL games in any preceding seasons, nor in six or more NHL games in each of any two preceding seasons. Any player at least 26 years of age (by September 15th of that season) is not considered a rookie.

        Upshall played in 7 in 04 and 8 in 03, therefore doesn't qualify.

        The criteria for a rookie rating on the disk is NHL Calder trophy eligibility.
