    Has a team ever placed two defenseman on the all-rookie team ???

    I think the Flyers will have an outside chance at doing that this year.

    I am not sure, but I can guess no because giving two rookie defensemen enough time to succeed, especially on a "contender" (and I use that term loosely referring to Philly) would be close to suicide. Pitkanen may have the talent to be a 2nd pairing defenseman this year, maybe even get 1st pairing minutes, but Woywitka should play most of his season in the AHL this season.

    Woywitka will start the season in the AHL, but Jim Vandermeer, will play regularly in our top 6. He played 24 games last year so he is still considered a rookie. Also appears to have improved quite a bit from last year. Not going to put up great offensive numbers, but very steady tough physical defenseman.
