    Faulk (leg) won't play Saturday against the Islanders. Faulk has now missed back-to-back games with a leg injury he sustained in Thursday's practice. He's still listed as day-to-day with the ailment, however, indicating he likely isn't dealing with a serious issue. Faulk will hope to return to the Hurricane's lineup Tuesday against Winnipeg.

    Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Game-time call Friday

    Faulk (leg) will be a game-time decision Friday, when the Hurricanes host the Penguins. Faulk suffered an apparent leg injury in practice Thursday but it does not sound like a serious issue. Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said, "I think he's going to be able to play, but we'll see." Faulk's official status for the evening contest should be determined once pre-game warmups are underway. Currently, he leads his team with 34 points (15 goals, 19 assists) in 54 games.

    Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Enters All-Star break in a scoring slump

    Faulk entered the All-Star break with just three points and a minus-5 rating in his last 15 games. It would be easy to dismiss Faulk's early season success (30 points in his first 36 games) as a fluke, but make no mistake -- Faulk is for real. He's still seeing a lot of ice time, averaging just under 25 minutes per game, and he shoots the puck a TON -- in fact, his 154 shots rank second among NHL defensemen (Brent Burns is first with 205). He still has a shot at a 50+ point season, which would be no small feat on an offensively-challenged team like the Canes. He's that good. And he needs to be in your lineup at every opportunity.

    Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Sets up overtime-winner Tuesday

    Faulk set up the overtime-winning goal Tuesday as the Hurricanes beat the Penguins 3-2. It wasn't the greatest night for the stud rearguard, who skated to a minus-1 and didn't record a shot on goal for just the third time all season. Faulk now has points in consecutive games after being held off the scoresheet for six straight from Dec. 29 to Jan. 8, so hopefully he's snapped his cold spell. Nonetheless, with 14 goals and 32 points -- both of which pace the Hurricanes -- the American has emerged as one of the most valuable d-men in fantasy hockey and as such, should be locked into your lineup at all times.

    Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Nets 14th goal of season in Sunday's win

    Faulk scored his 14th goal of the season in Sunday's 2-1 win against the Blackhawks. With the score, Faulk moved into a tie for first place among goals by a defenseman with Sharks' Brent Burns. He's been incredibly productive in December with six goals and 12 points in 12 games.

    Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Two-point night continues record pace

    Faulk scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in a 3-1 win over the Devils on Saturday night. Wow. Faulk has 13 goals in 35 games this season after tallying 15 in 82 last season. And he's on pace for 30 goals and 68 points. Faulk is good, but we're not convinced he's Erik Karlsson good, so he's bound to slow down as the season gets tougher.

    Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: En route to setting NHL power play record

    By scoring 12 of Carolina's 20 power-play goals this season, Faulk is on his way to setting an NHL record, according to the league's website. No player since Pavel Bure (2000-01) and Brett Hull (1990-91) have scored more than 41% of their team's goals with the man advantage. Pretty impressive stuff for the 23-year-old rearguard who is proving to be one of the few bright spots - maybe even the only one - on an otherwise dismal Carolina team this season. His power-play prowess aside, Faulk's value to the Canes simply cannot be overstated. He plays in all situations, leading the team in overall ice time per game (25:07) and on the power play (3:23), and he's second in shorthanded minutes (2:18). He has nine points in his last eight games and leads the Canes in scoring for the second straight season. In fact, his 27 points in 34 games rank him fourth in scoring among NHL defensemen, and he's third in shots on goal with 102. Bottom line, Faulk is emerging as an elite, multi-category fantasy stud who should never be out of your lineup as long as he's healthy.

    Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Puts up third straight multi-point game Saturday

    Faulk scored his 12th goal of the season and had an assist in 27:33 of ice time in Saturday's win over Arizona. That's three straight multi-point games for Faulk, who continues to have a remarkable season. He scored on the power play Saturday and has now scored four power-play goals in his last four games. In fact, every single goal he's scored this season has come with the man advantage. The blueliner is simply fantasy gold and has 25 points in 30 games on the year. He's one of the best offensive defenseman in the game and he's only 23. Simply incredible. Use him well.
