According to Pierre LeBrun the Carolina Hurricanes have spoken to teams about the possibility of moving Faulk. (Source: Pierre LeBrun on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is not the first time Faulk's name has been in trade rumors. The Hurricanes were reportedly entertaining offers for the right-handed defenceman before, but rumors certainly intensified after yesterdays Jake Gardiner signing. Justin Faulk provides high level offensive production from the back-end, he has topped 10 goals in 4 of the last 5 seasons. The Hurricanes have good defensive depth, so it is possible that they would be willing to trade a defenseman to add to their forward group. Justin Faulk is a UFA after this season, so Carolina may decide to move on if an extension is not agreed on.

Brock McGinn has signed a two-year, $4.2 million extension with the Carolina Hurricanes, avoiding arbitration. (Source: Elliotte Friedman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: McGinn finished the 2018-19 season with 10 goals, and 26 points, while appearing in all 82 games. That was a slight decrease from the 2017-18 season where he managed 16 goals, and 30 points in 80 contests. McGinn is a valuable role-player for the Hurricanes, he offers some secondary scoring, as well as providing something of a physical element for his team. However, as far as fantasy goes, McGinn can be safely avoided.

Fantasy Impact: The 36-year old journeyman served as Carolina's backup goaltender this past season where he maintained a 20-11-2 record, along with a 2.58 GAA and 0.912 SV% in 33 starts. His veteran presence is comfort for Tampa Bay to have in case anything happens to their star goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy

Calvin de Haan netted his first career playoff goal with 6:12 remaining in the second period of Game Three to cut the deficit to 2-1. Unfortunately for Carolina, Boston would hang on to win 2-1 and claim a 3-0 series lead.

One bright spot is the fact that during this span he also possesses a plus-four rating. His defense will need to be spotless if Carolina is to live another day beyond this Thursday night.
