Max Pacioretty scored his third goal of the season in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Devils.
Pacioretty is now up to three goals in his first three games with his new team. His transition from the lengthy absence into the first line has been seamless and he is looking like a difference-maker for the Hurricanes. If you scooped him up in your league, you are poised to reap the rewards in the second half, and if he is still available in your league, do not hesitate to add him before someone else does.
Max Pacioretty potted his first two goals of the season in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Blue Jackets.
Pacioretty looked comfortable on both the top powerplay unit as well as the first line today, when he spent the majority of his minutes with Sebastian Aho and Seth Jarvis. Pacioretty has the chance to be a difference-maker in both real life and Fantasy, so he is surely a must-roster player in all formats right now. The veteran looks like he has not missed a beat in his time away and should be started with confidence in all formats.
Max Pacioretty added six shots and finished a -1 in 16:06 of ice time in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Predators
It was a decent debut for Pacioretty, who was not on a set line in this one and instead skated with multiple combinations of linemates throughout the evening. Pacioretty has a chance to be a game-changer in the second half of the season for both the Hurricanes and Fantasy Hockey players. If he is available in your league, pick him up, regardless of the format or league size.
The Carolina Hurricanes announced they have activated forward Max Pacioretty from the injured non-roster list.
Pacioretty has yet to suit up for the Hurricanes after undergoing surgery for an Achilles tear on Aug. 10. Acquired from the Vegas Golden Knights this summer, Pacioretty notched 37 points in 39 games last season and posted 154 points over 158 games over the last three seasons. As long as he's healthy, he's a point-per-game player with a boatload of shots on goal and should be on every fantasy roster when he gets into the Hurricanes' lineup.
