Top Hurricanes News

  • Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Starting playoff opener

  • Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Won't play Saturday

    Fast (upper body) will not be in the lineup for Game 1 against the Islanders on Saturday, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

    Fast is stuck in a 24-game goal drought dating back to Feb. 13 versus the Stars. During his goal slump, the Swede notched six helpers, 23 shots and 30 hits while averaging 12:03 of ice time. Once given the all-clear, Fast should challenge Jack Drury or Stefan Noesen for a spot in the lineup.

  • Hurricanes' Andrei Svechnikov: Returning to action Saturday

    Svechnikov (rest) will return to the lineup for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup playoffs versus the Islanders on Saturday, per Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site.

    Although he's been limited by injuries this season, look for Svechnikov to see top-six minutes as well as a power-play assignment versus the Islanders for Game 1 on Saturday.

  • Hurricanes' Jordan Staal: Slated to play Saturday

    Staal (rest) returned to practice Thursday, according to Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site.

    Staal sat out Tuesday's finale versus Columbus as coach Rod Brind'Amour rested eight veteran players. The 35-year-old Staal had 10 goals, 20 assists, 123 shots on goal and 142 hits in 80 appearances during the regular season.

  • Hurricanes' Jaccob Slavin: Practicing Thursday

    Slavin (rest) took part in practice Thursday ahead of Game 1 against the Islanders on Saturday, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    Slavin has three multi-point games over his last five outings, tallying a combined seven points over that stretch. The blueliner has been fairly streaky offensively this season, so fantasy players may want to exercise caution when considering him for daily lineups.

  • Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Returning to lineup

    Skjei (rest) was back at practice Thursday after getting Tuesday's game versus Columbus off, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    Skjei missed the last two games of the regular season, as coach Rod Brind'Amour gave him some time off in order to be healthy and ready for the team's playoff matchup versus the Islanders. Skjei had a five-game point streak at the end of the season, finishing the 2023-24 campaign with 13 goals and a career-high 47 points. He will likely be paired alongside Brett Pesce entering the postseason.

  • Hurricanes' Brett Pesce: Preparing for postseason

    Pesce (rest) was on the ice for practice ahead of Saturday's playoff matchup with the Islanders, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    Pesce hasn't scored a goal since mid-January, contributing six assists over the last 36 contests. Given his limited offensive upside, Pesce is unlikely to offer much in the way of fantasy value for postseason pools.

  • Hurricanes' Seth Jarvis: Back in action

    Jarvis (rest) returned to practice Thursday, according to Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site.

    Jarvis sat out the Hurricanes' season finale as coach Rod Brind'Amour decided to rest a few key players. Jarvis had a career-high 33 goals and 67 points in 81 games during the regular season.

  • Hurricanes' Jake Guentzel: Back after night off

    Guentzel (rest) retook his spot on the Canes' top line during practice ahead of Saturday's matchup with the Islanders, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    Guentzel is riding an eight-game point streak during which he's notched six goals and seven helpers, including five power-play points. In 67 combined games for the Penguins and Hurricanes, the elite winger has racked up 77 points in 67 contests while reaching the 30-goal threshold for the third straight campaign.

  • Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Ready for postseason

    Andersen was back on the ice Thursday in the lead-up to Saturday's Game 1 matchup with the Islanders, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    Andersen was in the starter's crease at Thursday's practice session, suggesting he'll get the starting nod for Saturday's home clash versus the Islanders. The backstop had been splitting the workload with Pyotr Kochetkov down the stretch but it seems unlikely that trend will continue into the postseason.

  • Hurricanes' Sebastian Aho: Back at practice

    Aho (rest) returned to practice Friday ahead of Saturday's clash with the Islanders, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    Aho went on a heater in his last 15 outings of the regular season, racking up 11 goals and 10 assists, including seven power-play points. After sitting out one game to prepare for the playoffs, Aho will rejoin Jake Guentzel and Seth Jarvis on the first line in addition to linking up with the No. 1 power-play unit against the Islanders on Saturday.

  • Hurricanes' Max Comtois: Returns to minors

    Comtois was returned to AHL Chicago on Wednesday.

    Comtois made his Hurricanes debut Wednesday, registering an assist in 13:04 of ice time. He has recorded 19 goals, 43 points and 103 PIM in 62 AHL contests with Chicago in 2023-24.

  • Hurricanes' Dylan Coghlan: Sent to AHL

    Coghlan was sent to AHL Springfield on Wednesday.

    Coghlan was summoned Tuesday and logged 17:59 of ice time in that evening's 6-3 loss to Columbus. He had a minus-2 rating, three shots, one hit and three blocks in that defeat. The 26-year-old defenseman has 16 goals and 41 points in 59 AHL outings in 2023-24.

  • Hurricanes' Teuvo Teravainen: Lights lamp twice in loss

    Teravainen scored two goals, one on the power play, in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Blue jackets.

    He twice tied the game up, making it 2-2 late in the first period and 3-3 midway through the second, but the Hurricanes' offense went cold after Teravainen's second tally. Teravainen had missed the prior two games with an undisclosed issue, but it looks like the 29-year-old will be more than ready for the postseason. Tuesday's tallies set a new career high for Teravainen, and he wrapped up the regular season with 25 goals and 53 points in 76 contests.

  • Hurricanes' Spencer Martin: Routed by former team

    Martin turned aside 19 shots in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Blue Jackets.

    Facing the team he played 13 games for earlier this season, Martin had a rough finish to the regular season. The 28-year-old netminder is likely done for the season, with Frederik Andersen and Pyotr Kochetkov more than capable of handling the duties in the crease during the playoffs. Over 19 outings between Columbus and Carolina, Martin has posted a 3.30 GAA and an .889 save percentage this year.

  • Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Exits contest Tuesday

    Fast (undisclosed) didn't return to Tuesday's tilt versus the Blue Jackets after requiring help to get off the ice following a crash into the board, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    The Hurricanes rested about half of their roster, but Fast still played and sustained an injury in the regular-season finale. Head coach Rod Brind'Amour did not have an update after the contest, leaving Fast's status for Game 1 of the playoffs in doubt.

  • Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Not playing after all

    Skjei (rest) will be out of the lineup Tuesday versus the Blue Jackets, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    Skjei was poised to rejoin the lineup after also resting in Sunday's 4-2 victory over Chicago, but he'll instead get another game off heading into the postseason. The 30-year-old defenseman ends the regular season at a career-high 47 points with 185 shots on net, 90 blocked shots, 69 hits and a plus-15 rating over 80 appearances. Skjei should be good for a top-four role in the playoffs.

  • Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Back in action

    Skjei (rest) will be in the lineup Tuesday versus the Blue Jackets, according to Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site.

    Skjei will play on the top pairing with Brent Burns after sitting out Sunday's 4-2 win over Chicago for roster management purposes. The 30-year-old Skjei has 13 goals, 47 points, 185 shots on net and 90 blocked shots in 80 contests this campaign.
