F - VAN
Michael Ferland and the Vancouver Canucks have agreed on a four-year contract that will pay the left winger $14 million.
The 27-year-old is coming off a season where he collected 17 goals and 23 assists with the Hurricanes. Not bad, until you consider he ended the season on a 17-game goal drought (plus seven playoff games). On the bright side, he contributed 182 hits, which was fourth among forwards with 40 or more points. Ferland is naturally a checking-style player, but he's managed to not look completely out of place when lined up in situations with skilled playmakers. This issue being, those aren't exactly abundant in Vancouver. His physical play coupled with consecutive 40-point seasons keeps him on the fantasy radar for now, but he'll be in tough to eclipse that threshold again this season.
The Hurricanes, today announced that the team has activated forward Micheal Ferland from injured reserve.
Huge lift for the Canes. Ferland leads the team in goals with 11 and deserves a look going forward.
The Hurricanes placed forward Micheal Ferland on injured reserve retroactive to Nov. 27.
Bad news for a Canes team that lately can't seem to score. Ferland is the team leader in goals at 11 and has four assists in 24 games this season.
Micheal Ferland scored a goal in Sunday's win against New Jersey.
Ferland's goal was his 10th of the season and he's up to 14 points through 20 games played. He'll keep it going against Toronto next.
Ferland scored a second-period power-play goal helping Carolina to a 3-1 win versus Detroit. He had a total of five shots on goal and played 13:45 minutes in the win.
He has scored in four consecutive games and has six on the season in just nine games played. Last year in 77 games played, Ferland posted career highs with 21 goals and 20 assists with six power-play points.
