Antti Raanta stopped 32 of 34 shots in a 6-2 win over Buffalo.

Fantasy Impact: Raanta improved his record to 4-1-1 this season. He remains the backup in Carolina and offers minimal fantasy value.

Martin Necas tallied his fifth goal of the season in a 6-2 win over the Sabers.

Fantasy Impact: Necas has tallied three points in his last five games and has 13 total on the season. Necas should be rostered as a solid bench player.

Teuvo Teravainen scored for the fifth and sixth time this season in a 6-2 Carolina win.

Fantasy Impact: Teravainen now has 17 points on the season and has registered a point in three of his last five games. He remains a fringe starting option.

Sebastian Aho tallied three assists in a 6-2 win over Buffalo. Aho finished with a +3 rating, four SOG, and one hit in 18:45 of ice time.

Fantasy Impact: Aho’s three assist night moves him to 25 total points this season. He now has back to back multi-point games for the Canes. He should remain locked in fantasy lineups.

Niederreiter records assist in Tuesday's loss to Stars.

Fantasy Impact: Niederreiter has points in three straight games. If his good play continues, he could move into a top six role.

Frederik Andersen allowed three goals on just 16 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Stars. His record falls to 11-5-1.

Fantasy Impact: It was a rare off night for Andersen, who has been a top-5 fantasy goalie this season backstopping an elite Hurricanes team defense. Nothing to worry about here. He'll have a good chance to rebound Thursday at home against the Senators.

Ethan Bear scored his first goal of the season early in the first period during the Hurricanes' 2-1 victory over the Ducks.

Fantasy Impact: Bear has only totaled six points but has played solid defense with 14 hits and 28 blocked shots. He would only be helpful in category leagues.

Tony DeAngelo grabbed an assist on Martin Necas's brilliant overtime goal, one that powered Carolina to a 2-1 win over Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact: DeAngelo has posted 11 points in 11 games to go along with a +11 rating this season. He should be rostered in every league, as he is proving he remains a high-end fantasy option at defense.

Jesper Fast notched his fourth goal on the season to tie the Blackhawks early in the third period on the way to their 4-3 victory.

Fantasy Impact: Fast leads the Hurricanes' third line while producing in multiple categories and is a +7 in nine games. If managers are desperate for hits with a possible goal side benefit, he could fill a role.

Andrei Svechnikov recorded two assists in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Fantasy Impact: Svechnikov continues to pace the unbeaten Hurricanes in points this season. The two helpers Wednesday night brings his assist total to six, to go along with seven goals and 13 points. He'll look to continue his scorching start when the Canes play the Panthers in a division showdown Saturday night.

Stepan contributed one goal and one assist to continue Carolina's perfect season.

Fantasy Impact: While it seems like everyone on Carolina's squad could have a positive fantasy impact right now, Stepan is still relegated to the fourth line and not particularly useful.

Jani Hakanpaa scored his first goal as a member of the Hurricanes Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: Hopefully this is the first of many for the young defenseman as the Canes push for the top spot in the central division.

Petr Mrazek came up short in the shootout against the Red Wings on Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: Petr Mrazek and the Canes should bounce back Monday when they take on the Red Wings again.

Fantasy Impact: Hamilton was also a plus two and played a team high 26:35.

Category: Game Recaps


Nedeljkovic stopped all 24 shots faced to record his second shutout of the season.

Fantasy Impact: The combination of Nedelkjovic and Petr Mrazek has been on fire lately. Look for the Canes to keep it up Saturday against the Red Wings

Jordan Staal recorded 2 goals in Tuesday night's win over the Panthers. He also registered 3 shots on goal.

Fantasy Impact: With last nights 2 goal effort, Jordan Staal surpassed his point total from last season. He is having quite the bounce back season after only recording 27 points in 68 games last year.

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.
