New Jersey Devils (2012)
The Devils' 2008 third-round pick wasn't in the Calder Trophy discussion at the start of the season, but he was a finalist for the award by the time the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs began. The 22-year-old center then became the first rookie to score three game-winning goals in one postseason since Colorado's Chris Drury (4) and Milan Hejduk (3) in 1999. Henrique also tied the NHL rookie record of two OT tallies shared by Jacques Lemaire (1968) and Claude Lemieux (1986), one of them eliminating the rival New York Rangers in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final. In the Cup final, he staved off the Devils' elimination in Game 4 with a clutch late-third period goal.
