Guentzel ties Ciccarelli's rookie playoff points record

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Jake Guentzel has a place in the record books.

The Pittsburgh Penguins freshman tied former Minnesota North Stars winger Dino Ciccarelli's record for most playoff points by a rookie, picking up his 21st of the postseason Thursday.

The point came as an assist on Conor Sheary's goal to put the Penguins ahead of the Nashville Predators 4-0 in Game 5.

With 13 goals in the playoffs, Guentzel is also one shy of tying the all-time mark for playoff tallies by a rookie, a record also claimed by Ciccarelli in 1981.
