New team, new league. Same scoring touch.
Avalanche prospect and Lake Erie center Michael Sgarbossa has adjusted well in his rookie season in the AHL. He is currently second in scoring amongst rookies with 17 points in 19 games. Only Justin Schultz of Oklahoma City has more points. He also leads the Monsters in scoring.
Last season with the Sudbury Wolves, Sgarbossab became the first Sudbury player in 33 years to lead the OHL in scoring with 102 points. He finished second in goals (47) and fourth in assists (55). That is fine work for a player who went undrafted in the 2010 NHL draft. San Jose signed him to a three-year entry-level contract in Sept. 2010.
Colorado acquired his rights on Feb. 27, 2012 from San Jose along with Jamie McGinn and Mike Connolly in exchange for Daniel Winnik, TJ Galiardi and a seventh-round pick.Tags: Colorado, Colorado Avalanche, Hockey, Michael Sgarbossa, NHL
