The Hurricanes sent Haula, Lucas Wallmark and prospects Chase Priskie and Eetu Luostarinen to Florida for center Vincent Trocheck on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Haula started the year hot with 11 goals through 21 games, but his production has tapered off with just five points (one goals, four assists) over the last 20 contests. The 28-year-old battled a knee injury this season, too, after missing a big chunk of the 2018-19 campaign with a similar issue. As long as he stays healthy, Haula should fill a top-nine role with the Panthers, and he'll likely log power-play minutes, as well.
Haula scored a goal and dished an assist, both on the power play, in Saturday's 6-5 shootout win over the Golden Knights. Haula came back to haunt his former team, playing a key role in a four-goal third period for the Hurricanes. It was a much-needed performance for the 28-year-old, who entered Saturday on a nine-game point drought. Haula has 12 goals, 21 points and 71 shots through 35 contests this season.
Haula is a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game versus the Jets, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports. Haula's in a bit of a slump with five straight pointless outings and a minus-3 rating. He'll watch this game from the press box while Lucas Wallmark centers the third line. Haula will aim to get back into the lineup following the All-Star break.
Haula posted an assist, two shots on goal and two PIM in Friday's 3-0 win over the Coyotes. Haula has three tallies and five helpers in his last eight games. He's been a strong presence when healthy this year, with 19 points, 52 shots on goal and a plus-3 rating in 25 contests despite his third-line role. Six of the Finn's points have come on the power-play, but his production hasn't been overly reliant on that situation.
Haula dished out an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Flyers. Haula has been quite impressive since returning from injury, as he's lit the lamp three times and added four assists over eight games. The veteran pivot is locked into the third-line center role behind Jordan Staal and Sebastian Aho, but Haula toils on the first power-play unit, where he's accrued six of 18 points this year.
