We have added a process to our database that correctly determines NHL Rookie status, for the purposes of using the Player Finder tools in the Play Index. For example, see the Player Game Finder, and Player Season Finder.
Now you can use those tools to do a search for true rookies, in addition to the variety of other data points you can search on.
Hockey-Reference continues to make improvements to these tools. We welcome your feedback.
