Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The former Wisconsin star continues to accumulate honors after being named to the NHL's All-Rookie team in his first season of pro hockey.

The National Hockey League announced it's All-Rookie team Saturday, and former Wisconsin defenseman Justin Schultz was one of six rookies honored by the league.

Schultz -- who spent his first season in the NHL as a member of the Edmonton Oilers -- was joined on the All-Rookie team by forwards Brandon Saad (Chicago), Brendan Gallagher (Montreal), Jonathan Huberdeau (Florida), defenseman Jonas Brodin (Minnesota) and goaltender Jake Allen (St. Louis).

Huberdeau was named the Calder Trophy winner as the NHL's top rookie. Schultz finished 7th in the Calder voting, receiving two first place votes for the award.

A two-time All-American for the Badgers, Schultz posted eight goals and 19 assists in 48 games in his rookie campaign while averaging over 21 minutes of ice time per game.

The All-Rookie Team was chosen by members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association, who voted at the end of the regular season.
