  • Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Tallies power-play goal versus Penguins

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/3/17) Faulk scored a power-play goal in a 3-2 loss to the Penguins on Sunday.

    As usual, Faulk is killing owners in the plus/minus category, but as far as goal-scoring goes, only Brent Burns has more goals than Faulk among NHL defensemen. What's a little unexpected, though, is only four of his 17 goals have come on the man advantage. Last season, he posted 12 power-play markers. The lack of special teams scoring has limited Faulk's value.

    Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Stays hot against Red Wings

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/28/17) Faulk tallied a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Detroit.

    After scoring two goals in Monday's game against these same Red Wings, the Minnesota native continued his abuse of the Detroit defense by playing setup man. Faulk's assist totals have lagged both this season and last thanks to playing for a Carolina team that isn't known for generating tons of offense, but the guy is 25 years old with three 15-goal seasons under his belt. He's one of the most underrated stars in the league, all because of his poor team context.

    Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Scores twice, fires nine shots on goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/28/17) Faulk scored two goals and registered nine shots on net during Monday's overtime loss to Detroit.

    The 25-year-old defenseman flashed his upside Monday, but the offense has been hit or miss of late, as Faulk has hit the scoresheet in just six of his past 21 games; he's totaled five goals, eight points and 57 shots in that span. For the campaign, he's matched last season's 16 tallies and has 17 helpers, so Faulk has maintained plenty of his fantasy value. Additionally, outside of his minus-11 rating, the peripheral numbers are solid (30 PIM, 101 hits and 76 blocked shots through 67 games). Now entering his prime, look for Faulk to continue providing strong fantasy numbers, and there's room for growth with a lot of high-upside players around him in Carolina.

    Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Toughing it out Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/14/17) Faulk (undisclosed) took pregame line rushes, signaling that he will likely suit up for Tuesday's clash with the Islanders.

    It appears that Faulk will tough it out despite reports that he might not be ready to go. He's slated to skate on Carolina's second defensive pairing alongside Noah Hanifin on Tuesday.

    Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Game-time decision Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/14/17) Faulk is considered questionable for Tuesday night's matchup with the Islanders after blocking a shot in the third period of Monday's win over the same squad.

    Faulk was evidently able to finish out Monday's game without leaving but is now suffering from adverse effects of the shot that hit him. The injury comes at an inopportune for the American blueliner, as he is currently riding a four-game point streak, during which he has recorded three goals and two assists. Check back for an update on Faulk's status prior to puck drop.
