With his three-point night, Paul Stastny broke the record for most points (53) by an Avalanche rookie since the team moved to Denver. The record had belonged to Alex Tanguay, who had 51 points in 1999-2000.
But Joe Sakic alleviated those fears when the father walked through the locker room one day. Sakic, who was mentored by the elder Stastny when he was a rookie, pulled the father to the side. He simply told him the kid was good and could hold his own.
"I knew he could play, but you never know," Peter Stastny said. "Joe said, 'He didn't make the team because he's your son. He deserved to make the team.' That's a good thing to hear. He's with a great group of guys who put him in a position to showcase his talent. He's done better than I could dream."
