Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Returns to practice Thursday
Andersen (lower body) is back at practice Thursday, according to Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site.
Andersen is one of three goaltenders on the ice, as Antti Raanta and Pyotr Kochetkov are also facing shots. Andersen has been out of action since Nov. 6 and is 5-3-0 with a 2.72 GAA and an .891 save percentage this season. There is no word on when he will be able to return to the lineup.... See More ...

Hurricanes' Ondrej Kase: Skates before practice Thursday
Kase (concussion) skated before practice Thursday, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

Hurricanes' Dylan Coghlan: Heading on conditioning assignment
Coghlan was assigned to AHL Chicago on a conditioning loan Wednesday, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Coghlan is eligible to spend 14 days with the Wolves during the assignment. He hasn't played an NHL game since Nov. 9, so this is a way for the Hurricanes to get the 24-year-old into game action. This move also more or less guarantees Jalen Chatfield will retain a third-pairing role with the big club for the next two weeks at a minimum.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Jack Drury: Gets first NHL assist
Drury recorded an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Ducks.
Drury got on the scoresheet for the first time this season with his helper to set up Brady Skjei in the first period. This was Drury's first NHL assist -- he scored two goals in as many games last season. The rookie forward has seen sheltered minutes so far, playing mainly on the fourth line. He's added 23 shots on net, 10 PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 14 appearances. Dynasty managers should continue to be patient with Drury, but redraft managers can likely leave him on the waiver wire.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Paul Stastny: Chips in with assist Tuesday
Stastny put up an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Ducks.
Stastny continues to work in a fourth-line role, and he helped out on a Brady Skjei goal in the first period Tuesday. Since he was a healthy scratch Nov. 9, Stastny has accumulated two assists in 13 contests. The 36-year-old has just six helpers, 22 shots on net, 12 PIM and a minus-2 rating in 25 outings overall. With little chance to move up the lineup, he's not a viable fantasy option in most formats.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Slides helper in overtime loss
Fast notched an assist, three shots on goal and three blocked shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Ducks.
Fast helped out on a Jordan Staal goal in the second period. The assist was Fast's second in as many contests since he snapped an eight-game point drought. The 31-year-old remains more of a defensive winger, but he can chip in offense in small bursts at times. He's up to two goals, six helpers, 23 shots on net, 39 hits, 11 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in 26 outings.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Jaccob Slavin: Registers helper
Slavin posted an assist, three shots on goal and three blocked shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Ducks.
Slavin has picked up two assists in his last three games, but the 28-year-old's offense remains spotty. He's never at risk of losing his place in the lineup thanks to his strong defensive work, but fantasy managers likely have looked elsewhere amid his slow start to the campaign. Slavin has a goal, six helpers, 52 shots on net, 36 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating through 26 contests.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Seth Jarvis: Point streak at six games
Jarvis registered an assist and three shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Ducks.
Jarvis briefly had to leave with a potential injury, but he was able to return and finish the contest without trouble. He has put together a six-game point streak with two goals and four assists in that span. The 20-year-old winger should continue to thrive in a top-line assignment. He's up to five tallies, eight helpers, 54 shots, 29 hits and a plus-6 rating through 26 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Brent Burns: Contributes helper in OT loss
Burns posted an assist and blocked two shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Ducks.
Burns had a shot tipped in by Jordan Staal in the second period. With a goal and five helpers over his last five games, Burns is finding some consistency lately. The 37-year-old defenseman remains a steady source of offense with 19 points (nine on the power play), 91 shots on goal, 24 blocked shots and a plus-4 rating through 26 contests this season.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Scores for second straight game
Skjei scored a goal on four shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Ducks.
Skjei tallied in the first period for his second goal in as many games. Prior to this burst of offense, he'd gone 10 contests without a point. The 28-year-old isn't necessarily a goal-scoring dynamo, but he can be more consistent than he was in November. For the season, the defenseman has four tallies, five assists, 57 shots on net, 30 hits, 19 blocked shots and a plus-7 rating through 26 outings.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Jordan Staal: Lights lamp Tuesday
Staal scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Ducks.
Staal tied the game at 3-3 with a deflection of a Brent Burns shot. The goal ultimately forced overtime, but Ryan Strome won it for the Ducks in the extra session. Staal has scored twice in the last three contests since he snapped a seven-game point drought. The third-line center has six goals, three helpers, 40 shots on net, 57 hits and a plus-3 rating in 26 outings overall.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Sebastian Aho: Scores again Tuesday
Aho scored a goal on six shots, levied four hits and blocked two shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Ducks.
Aho tied the game at 2-2 with his second-period marker. The center has scored in each of his last two games since snapping a six-game goal drought. For the season, he's at 11 tallies, 27 points, 77 shots on net, 29 hits, 18 PIM and a plus-2 rating in 26 contests.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Takes overtime loss
Kochetkov allowed four goals on 30 shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Ducks.
Kochetkov never had a chance to protect a lead in the game, as the Hurricanes' offense could only counter the Ducks throughout regulation. The 23-year-old then got beat by Ryan Strome in overtime after a sloppy line change. Kochetkov dropped to 5-1-4 with a 2.44 GAA and a .914 save percentage in 10 outings. He's started seven of the last nine games and appears to be the Hurricanes' preferred option in net over Antti Raanta. The Hurricanes' road trip continues Saturday versus the Islanders....

Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: First off Tuesday
Kochetkov was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports, indicating he will start Tuesday on the road versus Anaheim.
Kotchetkov has won his past three outings, including a 31-save performance in Saturday's 4-2 victory over Los Angeles. He has a 5-1-3 record this season with a 2.27 GAA and a .919 save percentage in nine appearances. The Ducks rank 32nd in the league with 2.42 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Gets on scoresheet with assist
Fast notched an assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Kings.
Fast snapped an eight-game point drought with his assist on Brady Skjei's opening tally Saturday. During that span, Fast saw an increased role to make up for the absence of Teuvo Teravainen (upper body), who returned versus the Kings. Fast will likely remain on the third line going forward. He's at two goals, five assists, 20 shots in net, 39 hits and a plus-4 rating through 25 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Brett Pesce: Logs assist in win
Pesce put up an assist and blocked two shots in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Kings.
Pesce helped out on an Andrei Svechnikov goal in the third period. It continued a recent surge of offense for Pesce, who has two goals and three assists in his last five games. the 28-year-old blueliner is up to eight points, 44 shots on net, 36 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating in 25 contests overall as a mainly defensive presence in the Hurricanes' top four....

Hurricanes' Jordan Martinook: Notches helper in Saturday's win
Martinook produced an assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Kings.
Martinook began December with a hat trick Thursday versus the Blues, but his follow-up effort was a little quieter. He set up a Brady Skjei goal in the first period Saturday. Martinook has been solid in a middle-six role so far, logging seven goals, six assists, 52 shots on net, 34 hits, 18 PIM and a plus-7 rating through 25 outings. He hasn't reached the 20-point mark since 2018-19, but he's well on his way there this year and could even put up a career year if he stays healthy.... See More ... See Less
