Jordan sat out Friday's 4-1 loss to Dallas, marking the fourth consecutive game he's watched from the pressbox. Even with fellow defenseman James Wisniewski on the DL with a torn ACL, Jordan is having trouble finding himself a spot on the Canes' blue line these days, as his spot has been taken by recent AHL callup Brett Pesce. At this point, it looks like the Canes' top six defensemen are pretty much set in stone for the time being, meaning Jordan will continue to be the odd man out for the foreseeable future. He should not be on anyone's fantasy roster right now.
Michal Jordan and the Hurricanes agreed to terms on a one-year deal that will pay Jordan $625,000 next season. "Michal took great strides last season, and continued that progress when he represented his home country as it hosted the World Championship," said GM Ron Francis. "He's still a young defenseman, and we expect him to continue to improve going forward."
