    Hurricanes' Victor Rask: Adjusting to life as on Canes' checking line

    In his last game just before the All-Star break (Jan. 26 versus the Blackhawks), Rask saw a season-low 11:59 of ice time, with zero minutes on the power play. Rask is still averaging over 16 minutes per game on the season, but he's only seen that much ice time once since the end of December. Previously, Rask was skating in a top-six role for the Canes, but he's currently centering the team's third line between Jeff Skinner and Riley Nash. With 29 points in 49 games, he still has a good chance to surpass his 33-point rookie campaign from last season, but it will be a grind if he continues to see bottom-six minutes. Go with a more viable fantasy alternative if you have one.

    Hurricanes' Victor Rask: Ineffective in loss

    Rask finished with a minus-2 rating and skated for 14:07 worth of ice time in Sunday's loss to the Penguins. Rask dealt with an upper-body injury last week, but Sunday marked his fourth game back since being sidelined for a contest and he appears to be over the ailment. The 22-year-old is worth a look on the waiver wire, as he's up to 28 points on the season including 12 on the power play.

    Hurricanes' Victor Rask: Posts assist in win over Caps

    Rask recorded his 25th point of the season, assisting on Jeff Skinner's eventual game-winning goal in the third period of Thursday's 4-2 win over the Capitals. Following his 33-point rookie campaign last year, Rask has continued to make positive strides this season. Given his current pace, he could hit the 20-goal and 50-point mark, which would represent excellent milestones given the relatively weak supporting cast he currently has in Carolina. Keep him rolling.
