Jonatan Berggren earns yearly honor from Red Wings

Well deserved!



Among the many new faces for the Detroit Red Wings in the 2022-23 NHL season was forward Jonatan Berggren, who's spot in the lineup in mid-November was necessitated by a myriad of injuries to Red Wings players already on the roster.

And he made the most of it, scoring 15 goals with 13 assists in his first NHL season. And thanks to his efforts, he's being recognized by being named the Red Wings Rookie of the Year: 

Some stats from the official press release: 

"Berggren, 22, skated in 67 games with the Red Wings during the 2022-23 season and ranked among the NHL's rookie leaders with 15 goals (7th), 28 points (14th), five power play goals (T3rd), nine power play points (T7th) and a 15.3 shooting percentage (3rd). The 5-foot-11, 197-pound forward recorded the highest shooting percentage of any Red Wings rookie (minimum one shot per team game) since Henrik Zetterberg finished at a 16.3% clip in 2002-03. Berggren picked up an assist in his NHL debut on Nov. 10 against the New York Rangers and scored his first career NHL goal on Nov. 15 at Anaheim. He tallied six points (2-4-6) through his first nine NHL games, becoming the eighth Red Wings rookie in the last 30 years to record at least six points through their first nine contests, joining Lucas Raymond (4-5-9 in 2021-22), Moritz Seider (0-8-8 in 2021-22), Filip Zadina (1-5-6 in 2019-20), Taro Hirose (1-6-7 in 2018-19), Dennis Cholowski (2-4-6 in 2018-19), Dylan Larkin (2-5-7 in 2015-16) and Zetterberg (3-3-6 in 2002-03)."

Congratulations on a well-deserved honor!
