Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Will serve as backup Friday
Andersen (upper body) will serve as the backup goaltender in Friday's home game against San Jose.
Andersen was hurt in the first period of Wednesday's game against Dallas and couldn't finish the contest. He's 9-3-0 with a 2.49 GAA and a .905 save percentage in 13 games in 2022-23. Antti Raanta is expected to be in net Friday.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: Earns victory in relief
Raanta stopped the 15 shots he faced in relief during Carolina's 3-2 overtime win against Dallas on Wednesday.
Frederik Andersen got the start, but he stopped just four of six shots in the first period and didn't come out for the second because of an upper-body injury. Raanta was in net to start the second frame, and because Dallas was ahead 2-1 at the time, Raanta was credited with the win. He's 11-2-3 with a 2.52 GAA and an .898 save percentage in 17 contests in 2022-23. The 33-year-old didn't play in Carolina's previous six games, but if Andersen's unavailable for any significant period of time, then Raanta is likely to receive a meaningfully increased workload....

Hurricanes' Brett Pesce: Contributes two helpers Wednesday
Pesce registered two assists in a 3-2 overtime win against Dallas on Wednesday.
Pesce has four goals and 20 points in 47 games this season. He had been scoreless over his previous three games. This is Pesce's third straight season with at least 20 points. The 28-year-old finished 2021-22 with seven goals and 28 points in 70 contests.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Brent Burns: On three-game point streak
Burns scored a goal in Carolina's 3-2 overtime win against the Stars on Wednesday.
Burns found the back of the net at 4:55 of the second period. The 37-year-old was held to a goal and no assists over six contests from Jan. 5-15, but he's now on a three-game point streak. Burns has eight goals and 32 points in 38 games in 2022-23.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Martin Necas: Provides overtime winner
Necas found the back of the net in the Hurricanes' 3-2 overtime win against Dallas on Wednesday.
Necas provided the overtime winner at 1:34 of the frame. He has 19 goals and 42 points in 47 contests in 2022-23. While the 24-year-old established a new career high in points with his marker Wednesday, Necas entered the contest in a bit of a slump after being held off the scoresheet in four of his previous five games....

Hurricanes' Sebastian Aho: Scores shorthanded goal Wednesday
Aho netted a shorthanded goal in Carolina's 3-2 overtime win against Dallas on Wednesday.
Aho opened the scoring at 8:46 of the first period. It was his 18th marker and 41st point in 40 games in 2022-23. He's been held off the scoresheet only once in his last eight contests.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Sustains upper-body injury
Andersen (upper body) won't return to Wednesday's game versus the Stars, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Andersen was hurt in the first period and didn't return to start the second. Antti Raanta took over in goal and could see an uptick in playing time if Andersen is out for any length of time. Pyotr Kochetkov could also be recalled if Andersen's injury is anything more than just a minor bump. The Hurricanes' next game is Friday versus the Sharks.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Jaccob Slavin: Won't play Wednesday
Slavin (lower body) is expected to miss Wednesday's game against Dallas.
Slavin was also absent from Saturday's 5-2 win against the Islanders because of the injury. He has three goals and 15 points in 45 contests in 2022-23. With Slavin unavailable, Dylan Coghlan, who played Saturday after being a healthy scratch Thursday, will likely remain in the lineup.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Starting in Dallas
Per Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site, Andersen was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, indicating he'll guard the road goal during Wednesday's matchup with Dallas.
Andersen has been red hot over the past two weeks, stringing together four straight wins while posting an impressive 1.75 GAA and .942 save percentage. He'll try to secure his 10th victory of the season in a tough road matchup with a Stars squad that's averaging 3.86 goals per game at home this year, second in the NHL.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Jaccob Slavin: Doubtful for Wednesday
Slavin (lower body) is doubtful for Wednesday's contest against Dallas, Cory Lavalette of the North State Journal reports.
Slavin, who sat out Saturday's win over the Islanders, did not take part in Tuesday's practice. If he is unavailable again, Jalen Chatfield will likely be paired with Brent Burns. Slavin has contributed 15 points in 45 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Dylan Coghlan: Part-time player
Coghlan skated 12:06 in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Islanders, registering zero points.
The seldom-used Coghlan has been a healthy scratch more often than not this season. He has just a pair of helpers -- both of which came in the same game Dec. 22 -- in 11 games and should not be on anyone's fantasy roster at the present time.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Derek Stepan: Not seeing much ice time
Stepan skated just 8:06 in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Islanders, registering a single shot on goal.
The 32-year-old Stepan has been anchored on the Canes' fourth line all season, averaging just 9:06 TOI. It's also worth noting that he's served as a healthy scratch in three of the last six games. With just six points in 40 games this season, his fantasy value is hovering as close to zero as it can get.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Bulges twine Saturday
Fast scored his sixth goal of the season in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Islanders.
Now with 18 points (six goals, 12 assists) in 44 games, Fast could challenge last season's career high of 34 points. The bottom-six winger offers modest fantasy value in deeper formats.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Fourth win in row
Andersen made 29 saves in a 5-2 win over the Islanders on Saturday.
He's 4-0-0 since returning from a lower-body injury that kept him on the shelf for 29 games. Andersen is an elite NHL netminder, but that risk of injury always seems to hang over him. Use liberally when healthy.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Sebastian Aho: Hats off delivers win
Aho delivered a natural hat trick in a 5-2 win over the Islanders on Saturday.
It was Aho's second hat trick this season and sixth in the NHL. He pushed the Canes into a 3-2 lead late in the second period when he redirected Teuvo Teravainen's centering pass off Isles' defender Sebastian Aho and past Ilya Sorokin. Aho then scored blocker side from the bottom of the right circle after intercepting a pass, and sealed the game with an empty netter. He is now one goal shy of 200 in the NHL.... See More ...
