Woods penned a one-year, two-way contract with the Hurricanes on Thursday. Woods new deal will pay $650,000 at the NHL level or $80,000 in the minors. Selected in the fifth round of the 2012 NHL Draft, the 24-year-old is likely bound for the AHL for the bulk of the 2016-17 campaign where he has tallied 22 goals over the previous two seasons.
Woods was reassigned to AHL Charlotte on Sunday. Woods made two appearances in this most recent recall, bringing his total up to five on the season. The former Wisconsin Badger will close out 2015-16 in the AHL, where he's logged 20 points in 58 games this season.
Woods was recalled from AHL Charlotte on Saturday. The 2012 fifth-round pick spent nearly all of 2015-16 with the Checkers, collecting 19 points over 56 AHL contests this season. While he's still just 23 years of age, Woods doesn't appear to own the skill set necessary to be a consistent fantasy contributor. Considering he's averaged just 6:57 of ice time in three games with the Hurricanes this season, his promotion will likely go unnoticed in nearly all fantasy leagues.
Woods was reassigned to AHL Charlotte on Saturday. Woods drew into the lineup on two occasions during his brief stay with the big club, registering a single shot on goal and 5 PIM in those contests. The 23-year-old forward may have to wait until the 2016-17 campaign for his next opportunity with the Hurricanes.
Woods was recalled from AHL Charlotte on Monday. The 23-year-old Woods has just two NHL games under his belt, but may get another chance to add to the total Tuesday as one of just 13 forwards on the roster (two dealing with injuries). Even if that's the case, it's unlikely he will see enough ice time to be fantasy-relevant.
