Top Hurricanes News

  • Hurricanes' Spencer Martin: Slated to start Thursday

    Martin is set to start on the road versus Columbus on Thursday, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    Martin has saved 73 of 79 shots (.924 save percentage) to post a 2-0-1 record over his past three starts. While that's a strong stretch, he's 6-8-2 with a rough 3.21 GAA and .895 save percentage across 17 contests overall. The Blue Jackets, who are tied for 22nd offensively with 2.91 goals per game, should be a favorable matchup for the hot goaltender.

  • Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Drawing close to return

    Andersen (illness) might make his return next week, GM Don Waddell told Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer on Thursday.

    Andersen, who hasn't played since Nov. 2, has a 4-1-0 record, 2.87 GAA and .894 save percentage in six appearances this season. Once he's available, Andersen will likely reassert himself as Carolina's top goaltender. However, with Antti Raanta (lower body) and Pyotr Kochetkov also expected to compete for starts once all three netminders are healthy, Andersen might see less work than most other No. 1s in the league.

  • Hurricanes' Jordan Staal: Two points in win

    Staal tallied a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 victory over Minnesota.

    After the Wild scored halfway through the first period, Staal answered with a backhand goal of his own that beat Filip Gustavsson. Staal added an assist on the game-tying goal in the second period, provided one shot on net, three hits and a plus-1 rating in 15:15 of ice time. He had not scored in any of the three prior games and only has 15 points on the season. Unless you're in a very deep league or desperately need faceoff wins, it's best to leave Jordan Staal on the waiver wire and target players with a higher offensive ceiling.

  • Hurricanes' Jalen Chatfield: Returns from injury

    Chatfield had two hits and two shots on net in a 3-2 win over the Wild on Tuesday.

    After missing the last four games with an upper-body injury, Chatfield returned to his regular spot on the third pairing with partner Dmitry Orlov. Chatfield finished with two shots, two hits, one blocked shot and a minus-1 rating in 15:32 of ice time. He's not known for his offensive contributions and is primarily valuable for blocked shots and hits in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Holds on for win

    Kochetkov kicked out 28 of 30 shots in a 3-2 road win over the Wild on Tuesday.

    After allowing two goals on only seven shots in the first period, Kochetkov turned aside the remaining 23 shots fired at him to stymie the Wild and to capture the win for the Hurricanes. He was especially strong on the penalty kill, stopping all six power-play shots and finishing the game with a .933 save percentage. With a recent shutout under his belt, Kochetkov is trending upwards and should continue to see the lion's share of starts for Carolina.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Set to start Tuesday

In 30 appearances this campaign, he has provided a 15-10-3 record with three shutouts, a 2.36 GAA and a .910 save percentage. The Wild sit 14th in the league this season with 3.16 goals per contest.

It's the first point since Dec. 15 for DeAngelo, who's played in four straight games for Carolina after serving as a healthy scratch for much of the year. The 28-year-old defenseman is up to three goals and 10 points through 27 games this season.

  • Hurricanes' Martin Necas: Goal, assist Sunday

The 25-year-old Necas has 16 points (nine goals, seven assists) in his last 15 games. He's up to 42 points (19 goals, 23 assists) through 53 games this season.

  • Hurricanes' Spencer Martin: Falls in shootout

    Martin allowed two goals on 32 shots in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Sabres on Sunday.

    Martin was sharp Sunday, holding Buffalo to a Jeff Skinner power-play tally in the second period and an Owen Power marker in the final frame. However, the 28-year-old netminder would ultimately take the loss in a shootout. It's the first loss for Martin in four starts since joining Carolina. Overall, Martin's 6-8-2 with an .895 save percentage and 3.21 GAA across 17 appearances between the Hurricanes and Blue Jackets this season.

  • Hurricanes' Spencer Martin: Tending twine Sunday

    Martin will guard the road net Sunday against Buffalo, per Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site.

    Martin will get the second half of Carolina's back-to-back after Pyotr Kochetkov played in Saturday's 2-1 loss to Dallas. The 28-year-old Martin has stopped 69 of 75 shots en route to winning his previous three starts with the Hurricanes. Buffalo is tied for 21st in the league this campaign with 2.91 goals per contest.

  • Hurricanes' Tony DeAngelo: Back in lineup

    DeAngelo played his third consecutive game Saturday against the Stars, registering a pair of hits, a shot on goal and a blocked shot in 15:21 of ice time.

    DeAngelo hadn't played in three straight games since mid-December, having spent most of the last two months as a healthy scratch. Although he isn't contributing offensively as much as he once did, he's still moving the needle in the aforementioned peripheral stat categories, giving him modest fantasy value in deeper formats.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Falls to Dallas

    Kochetkov allowed two goals on 16 shots in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Stars.

    It wasn't the busiest outing for Kochetkov, but a Jason Robertson goal late in the first period and Wyatt Johnston's tally midway through the second were enough to stick the 24-year-old netminder with the loss. Kochetkov had been sharp coming into Saturday's contest, going 3-1-0 with a pair of shutouts and a .970 save percentage in his previous four outings. He's now 15-10-3 on the season with a .910 save percentage and 2.36 GAA.
