The Providence Bruins had three games this weekend, and while they may have only won on the Sunday against Portland, David Pastrnak contributed on all thre nights with a point in each game, going 1-2=3 on the weekend.

For the winning game, here were Providence's lines:

His three points moves him into sole possession of first place in the AHL among rookies, and makes him the only rookie currently scoring on greater than a point-per-game pace. The next closest rookie is Hamilton's Charles Hudon, a 2012 Montreal draft pick who made the jump from the QMJHL's Chicoutimi Saguineens this year.

Pastrnak is first among rookies but tied for fifth among all skaters, with the league-leading Travis Morin of the Dallas Stars a mere four points ahead of Pastrnak. He's tied with one-time NHLer Bobby Butler, and has teammate/linemate Alex Khokhlachev breathing down his neck with 15 points. It's been a hugely successful season in the AHL so far for Pastrnak, and he's still had plenty of time to give his teammates a hard time on the twitter.
