      Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Stays productive Wednesday

      Faulk went plus-3 with a pair of assists in Wednesday's win over the Oilers. The Hurricanes are struggling this season with an 8-10-4 record and minus-16 goal differential, but don't let that deter you from scouting Faulk in fantasy circles. The 23-year-old blueliner has eight goals -- all on the power play -- along with 10 assists which currently has him leading all Carolina skaters in the points department.

      Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Nets two in win

      Faulk netted a pair of power-play goals in Sunday's win over the Kings. Faulk is in the midst of a great stretch, recording eight points in his past seven games, though he sports an unsightly minus-7 rating in that span. The 23-year-old has been terrific with the man advantage, already setting a new career high with eight power-play goals, as he appears set to top the 50-point plateau for the first time.

      Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Minus-4 with assist Monday

      Faulk recorded an assist -- his fifth point in five games -- but skated to a ghastly minus-4 in a 4-1 loss to Anaheim. Such is life for the ice-time leader on one of the league's worst teams, as Faulk is now minus-12 on the year. His 12 points (six goals) in 18 games is a great rate of production for a defenseman, but his value will be capped a bit due to the plus-minus concerns. Owners in leagues that count SOG get some redemption in that category, however, as Faulk has thrown 61 pucks on net this year -- good for third among blueliners.

      Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Rips a PP goal Thursday vs. Wild

      Faulk recorded a power-play goal for the second time in three games during Thursday's 3-2 OT loss to the Wild. Faulk has become a real threat on the power play this season. His six PP goals are tops in the NHL - that's one more than guys like Patrick Kane, Steven Stamkos and Jamie Benn, folks. With 10 points in 16 games, Faulk is currently on pace for a 50+ point season, which would be a career high for him. The only thing holding him back is the relatively weak supporting cast he's saddled with in Carolina, but don't worry - he will still find a way to get his points. Bottom line, Faulk should be in your starting fantasy lineup at every opportunity.

      Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Scores power-play goal in loss

      Faulk netted a power-play goal in Saturday's loss to the Sharks. That's the third goal of the season for Faulk, who has scored all his goals with the man advantage. The 23-year-old has had a strong start to the year, racking up five points in eight games and firing 33 shots on goal. Faulk's minus-6 rating needs improvement, but the youngster is averaging 25:41 of ice time and has become one of the league's best offensive blueliners.

      Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Posts assist in loss to Preds

      Faulk registered his first point of the season in Thursday's 2-1 loss to Nashville, assisting on Eric Staal's third-period goal. Faulk saw more ice time than any other skater in this game (29:28), although he had just a single shot on goal. As he did last season, Faulk should feature very prominently on the Hurricanes' blue line this year. He makes for a good mid- to upper-tier fantasy defenseman selection in most formats.

    • Canes' Faulk Assists In Loss

      News: Justin Faulk registered a power-play assist and four shots on goal in Thursday's 6-1 loss to the Panthers.
      Analysis: Justin Faulk continues to power the Hurricanes' blue line with 15 goals and 48 points over 77 games, ranking fourth and second on the team, respectively, in those categories. A minus-21 rating probably puts him a notch below some of the elite fantasy defensemen, but the future certainly looks promising for Faulk, who only recently turned 23.
    • Canes' Faulk Puts Up Nine Shots In Loss

      News: Justin Faulk racked up nine shot attempts, but didn't come away with any points in Monday's loss to the Blackhawks.
      Analysis: Justin Faulk took a minus-2 rating on the night, the seventh straight game he's finished with a rating of zero or worse. He's only collected one point during that span, but like what was the case Monday, it hasn't been due to a lack of activity. With 14 goals and 45 points over 72 games this season, Faulk has probably been the MVP of the Hurricanes, and seems to have arrived as an upper-tier fantasy blueliner.
    • Faulk Carries Canes' Offense In Loss

      News: Justin Faulk scored his 13th goal and handed out two power-play assists Tuesday, but it wasn't enough in a 4-3 shootout loss to Columbus.
      Analysis: Maybe the 'Canes should have used their young stud blueliner in the shootout, as they went 0-for-3 against the Jackets' Sergei Bobrovsky. He's been one of the brightest spots for the Hurricanes this year, as Justin Faulk has an outstanding 44 points, including 18 power-play points, in 65 games. But he's been particularly good lately, with three goals and five assists in his last seven contests.
    • Canes' Faulk Leads Way On Power Play

      News: Justin Faulk scored the game's opening goal on a power play and added a man-advantage assist later in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Philadelphia.
      Analysis: Justin Faulk's got 11 tallies on the year, but he'd been held out of the goal column since Jan. 30 -- a 10-game span. However, he remained productive over that period, tallying seven assists, and he remains on pace for his first 50-point campaign.
