Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Zach Werenski was named rookie of the month for November, the NHL announced Thursday.

The 19-year-old leads all rookie blue-liners and all Blue Jackets rearguards with 16 points in 21 games.

Werenski notched 10 of those points in 14 games last month.

He ranks second in average time on ice among rookies (22:06) behind Boston Bruins defenseman Brandon Carlo (22:19).

Werenski is the fourth player in Blue Jackets history to be named rookie of the month, joining goaltender Steve Mason (Nov. and Dec. 2008), center Derick Brassard (Oct. 2008), and winger Rick Nash (Nov. 2002).
