Slavin produced a career-high 36 points in 68 games prior to the league suspending play in mid-March. Tucked right in behind Dougie Hamilton's 40 points to pace the Hurricanes' back end, Slavin has officially bested his previous career-high 34 set as a sophomore in 2016-17 -- in 14 less games. More impressive, perhaps, is his eye-popping plus-30 (!) rating, which happens to be tied with Hamilton for third in the NHL. Hamilton is paired with Slavin at even strength over 70 percent of the time, so it's clear that this duo is quietly one of the most effective in the Eastern Conference.
Slavin notched two assists, one on the power play, in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Rangers. The 25-year-old blueliner continues to produce. Slavin has one goal and 10 points over the last 11 games, and he should remain a strong fantasy asset down the stretch even if the Canes bring in defensive reinforcements at the trade deadline to help cover for the loss of Dougie Hamilton (leg).
Slavin picked up two assists in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Oilers. It's his first multi-point night since Nov. 30. Slavin hasn't had many peaks lately, but he's also avoided any deep valleys, piling up a goal and eight points in the last nine games while filling in for Dougie Hamilton (leg) as Carolina's top offensive option on the blue line.
Slavin scored a goal on two shots, dished two hits and went plus-3 in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Coyotes. Slavin's goal tied the game at two in the second period. The 25-year-old has a goal and four assists during his five-game point streak. He's up to five tallies, 27 points, 112 shots, 85 blocked shots and a plus-29 rating in 54 contests. It's all but certain Slavin sets a new career high in points by the end of the year.
Slavin notched an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Blues. Slavin has one helper in each of his last four games. The 25-year-old's boost in offense is partially offsetting the loss of Dougie Hamilton (lower body). Slavin is at 26 points, 110 shots, 84 blocked shots and a plus-26 rating in 53 contests. He could challenge the 40-point mark at his current pace.
