Maple Leafs rookies setting the pace for NHL's freshman class

 surprise to see the Toronto Maple Leafs leading the way when it comes to rookie production in the early stages of the 2016-17 NHL season.
Through the first two weeks of the season, the Leafs have been dressing six rookies and playing them regularly. Toronto's youth movement features top draft picks such as Auston Matthews, William Nylander and Mitch Marner, as well as wingers Connor Brown and Zach Hyman and defenseman Nikita Zaitsev. Matthews kicked off his NHL career with that spectacular four-goal debut and he was tied for the overall NHL scoring lead with six goals and 10 points through six games, while Nylander was right behind with four goals and nine points.
Add it all up, and the Leafs' six rookies contributed an NHL-best 12 goals and 28 points in 36 (combined) games. Nobody else was close, with the Philadelphia Flyers way back in second place with 10 points from their three rookies: center Travis Konecny (six points in seven games), defenseman Ivan Provorov (four points in seven games) and Roman Lyubimov (zero points in four games).
Here's a look at team-by-team rookie production, followed by a few notes on the NHL's 2016-17 freshman class below the chart:

-- Jets rookie cleared for takeoff: The best non-Leafs rookie in the early going has been Patrik Laine in Winnipeg. The No. 2 overall pick in last June's NHL draft had four goals -- including a hat trick against Auston Matthews and the Maple Leafs -- and six points through six games.
-- Blackhawks back for more: Chicago has the reigning Calder Trophy winner in Artemi Panarin, and the 'Hawks appear to be looking for other young guns. They've dressed five rookies on a regular basis (second only to the Leafs' six) and the kids have combined for 30 games (second only to the Leafs' 36). Tyler Motte, a center drafted 121st overall in 2013, leads Chicago's first-year players with two goals and four points in seven games.
-- Lots of kids: The Ducks, Coyotes, Bruins and Stars also have dressed five rookies each, with Arizona (two goals, eight points in 23 combined rookie games) and Dallas (two goals, eight points in 17 combined rookie games) getting the most bang for the buck so far.
-- Under the radar: Hurricanes winger Sebastian Aho had five assists in six games, while Wild center Joel Eriksson Ek had one goal and four points in three games.
-- Nothing doing: The Canucks, Capitals, Kings and Senators have dressed a rookie in at least one game, but didn't have any offensive production to show for it. The Avs, Blues and Sharks have yet to dress a rookie this season.

-- Net void: If you noticed rookie goaltenders aren't represented in the chart, that's because there aren't any. OK, that's not entirely true, but it's close. The Bruins' Malcom Subban and Zane McIntyre split a game after injuries to Tuukka Rask and Anton Khudobin, and the Predators' Juuse Saros replaced Pekka Rinne for one game when Nashville's No. 1 went down with food poisoning. But that's it. (Note: Matt Murray, who stepped in for injured Marc-Andre Fleury last spring and helped the Penguins to the Stanley Cup, is technically a rookie but he hasn't played yet due to an injury sustained at the World Cup of Hockey in September.)
