Kotkaniemi registered a point for the second consecutive game in Saturday's 5-1 win over Columbus, assisting on a power-play goal by Jordan Staal.

After a slow start in his first two games as a Hurricane, Kotkaniemi appears to be heating up. His ice time against the Blue Jackets was a season-high 13:32, including a healthy 3:19 on the power play. He's currently playing on the Canes' top line alongside Sebastian Aho and Teuvo Teravainen, which sounds to us like a terrific recipe for continued offensive success.
