'Stafford made quite an impression in his NHL debut. He was called up Sunday from the Rochester Americans along with Daniel Paille and replaced injured right winger Maxim Afinogenov on a line with center Derek Roy and left winger Thomas Vanek. All but five seconds of Stafford's 12:50 was at even strength, but he was put on the ice in overtime and delivered.'
