With twelve games to his credit, James Van Riemsdyk is taking the bull by the horns and staking an early claim to the Calder Trophy. Van Riemsdyk has 3 goals and 11 assists for 14 points on a very strong Phildelphia Flyers team with young stars Mike Richards and Jeff Carter along with a revitalized Ray Emery between the pipes. This team will be a strong play-off contender and Van Riemsdyk will continue to get more and more press. The sky is the limit for this young forward.
James Van Riemsdyk scored his first NHL goal in Philadelphia on October 24, 2009 against the Florida Panthers.
