I must have been living under a rock all season!  I did not realize Auger was considered a rookie.  Here I was rooting for Bryant Molle to get ROY.  If I had known Auger was eligible there was no question he deserved the award hands down.  Congrats to all the recipients!  Now let's get down to business and take care of Rapid City.  Go K's!!!

I think the CHL rookie status for professional games played in North America is set at 128 games.   Auger should still have rookie status next year after skating in 42 games last year with Mississippi and so far this year he skated in 57 games for the K's.  He wouldn't be a rookie in the ECHL next year though.   In the ECHL, a  rookie is any player who has played less than 25 regular season games of professional hockey.
