St. Louis Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko named NHL rookie of the month

NEW YORK, N.Y. - St. Louis Blues right-winger Vladimir Tarasenko was named NHL rookie of the month on Monday.

He led all rookies in scoring with nine points (five goals, four assists) over seven games in January.

Tampa Bay Lightning centre Cory Conacher (3-6-9 in six games), Edmonton Oilers centre Nail Yakupov (4-1-5 in seven games), Oilers defenceman Justin Schultz (2-3-5 in seven games) and Montreal Canadiens centre Alex Galchenyuk (1-4-5 in six games) were also considered.

The 21-year-old Tarasenko scored on his first two NHL shots in a 6-0 victory over Detroit on Jan. 19. He recorded three points (1-2) in a 4-3 shootout win over Nashville two days later.

Tarasenko, who was selected by the Blues with the 16th overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, closed the month with a four-game point streak.
