News
Stempniak scored a pair of goals -- including the game winner -- in Thursday's 4-1 upending of the Canadiens.

He's been on a roll of late, racking up seven points in as many games, although all the others were assists -- Stempniak hadn't scored a goal since March 3. The veteran skated 16:48 in this one, his second-highest usage in the last 15 games, which is nice. Still, we know who Stempniak is at this point in his career: a quality third-line scorer whose shortcomings tend to be exposed when he receives more premier assignments.

News
Skinner scored the game-winner Saturday in a 3-1 victory over the Devils.

Skinner is riding a five-game goal streak (seven goals) and six-game point streak (nine points). And the goal was his 30th. That's the third time he's hit that height. Make sure you take full advantage of this hot streak.

News
Lack will be in the crease for Monday's game against Detroit.

Lack is in the midst of a hot streak with a .954 save percentage and 1.35 GAA in his last four games. Considering Detroit ranks near the bottom of the NHL in scoring with 2.38 goals per game, Lack's chances of continuing his tear are high.

News
Lindholm scored his 10th goal of the year on a power play in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Canadiens.

While he's already set a new career high in points, it took Lindholm quite a while to break double-digit goals in 2016-17. He's always been more of a distributor than a sniper, of course, but if the young Swede continues developing with an eye on finishing effectively against NHL netminders, it wouldn't be surprising to see him increase his goal output in the long run. We haven't really seen 2013's No. 5 pick break out yet, which may be leaving some fantasy owners anxious, but Lindholm is still only 22 years old with a load of upside.

News
Dahlbeck recorded just his fourth point of the season with an assist in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Devils.

With just 34 games played, Dahlbeck has played a limited role this season and has frequently been a healthy scratch. He's currently skating on the Canes' third defensive pairing with Ryan Murphy, and doesn't offer any real fantasy value at the present time.

News
Brown was reassigned to AHL Charlotte on Sunday, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

Brown's one-month trial with the big club was a seriously disappointing one -- he managed no points, 12 shots on goal, and a minus-6 rating while averaging 9:42 of ice time in 14 games. He did manage 30 hits as well, giving him value as an enforcer but not much else.

Brett Pesce, # 22
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
73214161620
 
News
Pesce has 16 points in 71 games this season, matching his output from last year with 11 games left to play.

Although Pesce still has a chance to add to his modest totals this season, it's safe to say the Hurricanes are not counting on him to provide much by way of offense. Given that he is second on the team in blocked shots (129) and third in shorthanded ice time (2:08), the Canes have assigned Pesce more of a defensive role this season. He's clearly handled it with aplomb, as evidenced by his plus-14 rating. That said, all of this adds up to little more than modest fantasy value unless your league places a heavy premium on the aforementioned secondary stat categories.

News
Ryan recorded an assist for the third straight game in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Devils.

With 25 points in 58 games, Ryan has been a pleasant surprise for the Canes this season, providing decent secondary scoring in what has generally been a bottom-six role. He makes for a solid waiver-wire pickup candidate in deeper leagues down the stretch.

News
Aho's point streak now stands at six games and eight points (three goals, five assists) after he scored twice in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Devils.

Aho has 46 points, including 23 goals, in 73 games. It's a bad year to get recognition as part of an elite fleet of rookies. But Aho is showing himself to be every bit a top-line forward.
