      Hurricanes' Jay McClement: Struggling to add offense as a defensive forward

      McClement was held off the scoresheet for the 11th time in 13 games Friday against the Stars. McClement has just two assists so far this season, which should not be all that surprising considering he averages just 11:31 centering the Canes' fourth line. In other words, his job is not really to generate offense, but rather to help keep the puck out of his own net. In the meantime, fantasy owners would be wise to manage their expectations accordingly.

    • Rare Goal for Canes' McClement In Win Over Pens

      News: Jay McClement scored his seventh goal of the season - his first point in 11 games - in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Penguins. It was his 20th point of the season.
      Analysis: The last time Jay McClement hit the 20-point plateau was four seasons ago, when he had a combined 20 points with Colorado and St. Louis. At 32 years old, it would be a stretch to suggest McClement's career is on an upswing, but at the very least, it was nice to see him step up his game this season. He continues to possess modest fantasy value in deeper formats, especially those that count faceoff percentage, an area in which he particularly excels.
    • Canes Extend McClement

      News: Jay McClement signed a two-year, $1.2 million contract extension with the Hurricanes on Sunday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
      Analysis: Jay McClement hasn't posted a spectacular season thus far, but he does sport a plus-3 rating and has 18 points through 61 games. The 31-year-old will sort the Hurricanes' colors for at least another two seasons, though the team will look to improve on this season, currently sitting last in their division.
    • Canes' McClement: Two Goals In Win

      News: Jay McClement scored twice in Saturday's win over the Islanders.
      Analysis: Jay McClement is a role player whose greatest value lies in his ability to check the team's best snipers and win faceoffs. But he's also picked up seven points, including four goals, in his last 10. His 18 points put him on pace to deliver his best offensive season since 2010-11. His fantasy value is limited to the deepest of formats.
    • Carolina's McClement Gathers Two Assists

      News: Jay McClement finished with two assists and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Wild.
      Analysis: Jay McClement remains confined primarily to a fourth-line role for the Hurricanes, but that hasn't prevented him from providing an offensive boost of late. He's recorded a goal and three assists over his last five games, though he'll probably need to notice an uptick in both even-strength and power-play ice time in order to maintain this level of productivity.
    • Canes' McClement Adding Offense From Fourth Line

      News: Jay McClement registered an assist during Saturday's 5-4 win over the Sharks. It was his 12th point of the season and sixth in the past 10 games.
      Analysis: For a fourth-line player, Jay McClement has been a consistent source of offense for the Hurricanes over the past few weeks. That said, it's been five seasons since McClement last cracked the 20-point barrier, so don't be surprised if the recent scoring surge dries up and he reverts to trend.
    • Leafs' McClement Picks Up Assist

      News: Jay McClement was credited with an assist in Monday's win over the Maple Leafs.
      Analysis: The checking-line center has noticed an unexpected surge in production lately, registering assists in three of his last four games. However, with only three shots on goal during that stretch and his continued presence in a bottom-six role, there's not much to get excited about here.
    • Rare Assist For Canes' McClement In Win

      News: Jay McClement posted an assist -- just his sixth point of the season -- in Sunday's win over the Bruins.
      Analysis: Jay McClement will never be a big scorer, but he's one of the more reliable faceoff men in the league with a 55.6 percent win rate, and he kills a lot of penalties, leading the team in shorthanded ice time per game at 2:32. None of this adds up to much fantasy value, of course, but it shows why he's more of an asset to the Hurricanes than to hockey poolies.
    • Carolina's McClement To Play Tuesday

      News: Jay McClement (illness) is on the ice for pregame warmups and looks like he'll play Tuesday against the Canadiens.
      Analysis: Jay McClement centered Carolina's fourth line during pregame rushes, with Brad Malone and Justin Shugg flanking him on the side. It appears as though the gastrointestinal issue that forced him out of the team's morning skate has subsided.
    • Hurricanes' McClement: Game-Time Decison Tuesday

      News: Jay McClement is dealing with an illness and will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Canadiens.
