    Does anyone know whether NHL playoff games count torwards your Calder eligibility for the following season?

    This would affect Vancouver's Alexander Edler and New Jersey's Andy Greene. Are they still technically rookies going into 2007-08?

    Thanks in advance.

    Depends on how many games they played in the playoffs.

    If they played more then 32 (I think), then they are not considered rookies, but if they played below 32, then they are rookies.

    From the NHL Official Guide & Record Book: ''To be eligible for the award, a player cannot have played more than 25 games in any single preceding season nor in six or more games in each of any two preceding seasons in any major professional league''.

    Nothing about playoff games, and I've never heard of the aforementioned 32-game rule, so I'm a bit sceptical about it. You'd think if the playoff games count toward one's Calder eligibility the amount wouldn't be bigger than that of the regular season games. After all, the average player plays ten times as many games in the regular season as in the playoffs.

    I always remember 2-6 to be Calder eligible.

    26+ regular season games breaks your status
    2 years of 6+ regular season games breaks your status
    and 26+ years of age breaks your status.

    post season games have no effect on the Calder.
