Antti Raanta dominates Sabres in win

Antti Raanta was outstanding on Wednesday, turning aside 29/30 shots en route to a 5-1 victory over the Sabres.

Fantasy Impact

Raanta was given a tough task in this one, as the Sabres are not shy of the back of the net. However, he lead the Canes to their seventh straight victory before the all-star break. Raanta is the clear backup in Carolina, but he works well as a handcuff if you roster Frederik Andersen, or as a streamer on shallow slates like Wednesday. He improved his numbers on the year to 13-2-3, with a 2.46 GAA and a .902 SV%.

Antti Raanta bailed out by offence in win

Antti Raanta earned the win on Friday after allowing three goals on 29 shots in the 5-4 overtime win over the Sharks.

Fantasy Impact

Raanta was on the hook for the loss as the Sharks made it 4-2 with an empty net goal. Then, the Canes miraculously scored twice in the final two minutes before winning the game in overtime. Raanta earned the start with Frederik Andersen not fully healthy, and it remains to be seen who will get the start for Sunday's game against the Bruins. Raanta is now 12-2-3, with a 2.55 GAA and a .897 SV%.

Antti Raanta earns win in relief

Antti Raanta made 15 saves on 16 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Stars.

Fantasy Impact

Raanta entered in relief of Frederik Andersen after the latter left the game with a first-period injury. It is unclear if Raanta will be the starter or if the Hurricanes will call up Pyotr Kochetkov to be the starter again. In the meantime, monitor this situation as it is quite fluid and will depend on Frederik Andersen's status. Raanta is now 11-2-3 with a 2.52 GAA and a .898 SV%.

Antti Raanta struggles in shootout loss

Antti Raanta was not great on Saturday, allowing three goals on 18 shots in the 4-3 shootout loss to the Blue Jackets.

Fantasy Impact

After Pyotr Kochetkov struggled in consecutive games, the Hurricanes turned back to the red-hot Raanta, and he came back down to earth in this one. The Hurricanes are quickly finding themselves in the middle of a goaltending problem, as it seems like they can not trust either healthy netminder right now. This is a fluid situation to monitor with Frederik Andersen getting closer to a return, too. Raanta's record of 10-2-3, with a 2.63 GAA and a .894 SV%. should put him in the running for at least the backup gig, but Kochetkov has shown a higher ceiling this season. It remains to be seen what the Canes will do, but if you roster Raanta, keep track of any news regarding the other two as well.

Antti Raanta earns sixth straight win

Antti Raanta did just enough on Sunday, turning aside 24/28 shots in the 5-4 shootout win over the Devils.

Fantasy Impact

Raanta was stellar in the shootout when it mattered most, but the Hurricanes came through on offence in this one to give Raanta the win. He had set the third-longest shutout streak in franchise history before Jack Hughes' second-period goal, but he unravelled after that. He was certainly not as dominant as he has been lately, but regardless, he did enough for the win. If you picked him up during Kochetkov's minor injury hiatus, continue to ride the hot hand. Raanta is now 10-2-2, with a 2.67 GAA and a .897 SV%.
