Jordan sat out Tuesday's game against the Bruins as a healthy scratch, the fifth time in the past seven games he has watched from the press box. Jordan recently had a four-week stretch (from Feb. 25 to Mar. 22) where he played in every single game while Justin Faulk was out with an ankle injury, but he's only played in two games since Faulk's return to the lineup Mar. 24. With just a single point in 25 games this season, Faulk's fantasy value doesn't even move the needle in most formats.
Jordan potted a goal during the second period of Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Lightning. It was his first point in 21 games played this season. As the Canes' seventh defenseman, Jordan has seen very little playing time this season. However, with Justin Faulk currently on the sidelines with a leg injury, Jordan has now been in the lineup for eight consecutive games. He will likely return to healthy-scratch status once Faulk returns, however, and his fantasy value will once again resemble a number very close to zero.
Jordan will serve as a healthy scratch for the 20th consecutive game Saturday against the Predators, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports. Jordan has zero points in just 10 games this season and hasn't seen any game action since Nov. 16 against the Ducks. Mind you, his healthy-scratch status is not unusual as he played in just 38 games last season. His fantasy value is pretty much nil at this point in time.
The Hurricanes recalled Jordan from his conditioning assignment with AHL Charlotte. Jordan picked up three goals in four games with AHL Charlotte since leaving on the conditioning stint Dec. 14. It appears that's enough to convince the parent club that he's ready to return, and the blueliner should once again take his place among the defensive ranks.
Jordan was reassigned to AHL Charlotte on Monday for a conditioning stint. The move comes after Jordan was a healthy scratch for the Hurricanes' last 12 games and having last played on Nov. 16. Brett Pesce and Noah Hanifin seem to have solidified their spots on the Carolina blueline, leaving Jordan on the outside looking in.
