  • Hurricanes' Victor Rask: Agrees to six-year, $24 million deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/12/16) Rask (shoulder) has agreed to terms on a six-year, $24 million contract with the Hurricanes, NHL.com's Brian Compton reports.

    Rask took a big step up in his second NHL season, tallying 48 points (21 goals, 27 assists) in 80 appearances, after recording 33 points (11 goals, 22 assists) over 80 games as a rookie in 2014-15. He did have shoulder surgery in May, but the Hurricanes expect him to be healthy prior to the start of the upcoming campaign. After mostly splitting time between the second and third lines last season, the 23-year-old Swede should be back in the mix for a top-six role.

    Hurricanes' Victor Rask: Receives qualifying offer from Hurricanes

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/27/16) Rask was tendered a qualifying offer from the Hurricanes on Monday.

    The Hurricanes have long believed they would retain Rask for at least another season, with GM Ron Francis reaching out to Rask's agent about a month ago inquiring about a new contract. By offering him the qualifying offer, the Hurricanes can match any offer Rask sees on the open market, so it seems likely he'll remain with the organization. Rask posted career-highs of 21 goals and 27 assists in his second season with the Hurricanes and has plenty of upside at just 23 years old.

    Hurricanes' Victor Rask: Becomes RFA July 1; eyeing return to Canes in fall

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/29/16) Hurricanes GM Ron Francis said he reached out to Rask's agent recently and is waiting on a response, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

    Without Rask, who becomes a restricted free agent July 1, the Canes are quite thin down the middle following the departure of Eric Staal last season, so the team would love nothing more than to lock him up long-term. Tellingly, Francis sounded quite confident that a deal will get done, saying Rask "will be ready for training camp" following the shoulder surgery he underwent recently. Bottom line, we believe you will see a healthy Rask back in a Hurricanes uniform this fall, and given his career-high 48-point campaign last season, this is a guy you should be targeting in the middle to later rounds of your fantasy drafts come October.

    Hurricanes' Victor Rask: Career season in 205-16

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/15/16) Rask (shoulder) had 21 goals in 2015-16, good for second on the Hurricanes. His 48 points was also good for second on the team (tied with Jordan Staal) and a career-high.

    With the decline and eventual departure of Eric Staal this season, Rask emerged as one of the Canes' top two centers along with the younger Jordan. At just 23 years old, the fact that Rask is coming close to the 50-point mark on a mediocre Hurricanes team is impressive -- on just about any other team, Rask would likely have 60-70 point potential. Rask is expected to have minor shoulder surgery this offseason, but is fully expected to be ready to go once training camps open in the fall. Don't overlook him at your fantasy drafts next season.

    Hurricanes' Victor Rask: May face offseason shoulder surgery

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/17/16) Rask could be facing offseason shoulder surgery, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

    Rask, who finished tied for second in team scoring with 48 points, played in 80 of 82 games this season, so it seems likely that the injury is minor in nature, especially since he's waited until the offseason to have it taken care of. We expect he will be fully healthy and ready to go by the time training camps open in September.
