  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: Facing 6-8 week recovery

    Raanta sustained an MCL sprain and will need 6-8 weeks to recover, Sara Civian of The Athletic reports Thursday.

    Raanta joins fellow netminder Frederik Andersen with a sprained MCL, which will only further cloud the Hurricanes' goaltender situation heading into next season as both players will have to push back the start of their offseason programs. While the 33-year-old Raanta performed well in the playoffs, going 6-5 with a 2.26 GAA and .922 save percentage, he should be expected to once again serve as the No. 2 option behind Andersen heading into the 2022-23 campaign, assuming both players are fully fit.

  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: May have suffered serious injury

    Raanta (lower body) "wouldn't have been able to play" against the Lightning if Carolina advanced, Luke DeCock of the Raleigh News and Observer reports.

    Raanta will now have the rest of the offseason to heal but it's unclear exactly how severe the injury is. He's currently under contract with Carolina for one more season where he figures to serve as the primary backup behind Frederik Andersen again.

  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: Injured Monday

Barring a late comeback by Carolina, the veteran netminder will finish the 2022 postseason with a .922 save percentage alongside a 6-6 record.

  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: Starting in Game 6

    Raanta will guard the road goal in Saturday's Game 6 versus the Rangers, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

    Raanta is making his 10th straight postseason start, and he's looking to pick up his first road win of these playoffs. In 11 appearances, he has been excellent with a 1.99 GAA and a .931 save percentage. A win Saturday would advance the Hurricanes to the Eastern Conference Final.

  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: Lightly tested in win

    Raanta stopped 16 of 17 shots in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Rangers in Game 5.

    Raanta didn't face a ton of traffic, as the Hurricanes were able to establish their game. Mika Zibanejad's power-play tally in the first period was all the Rangers put past Raanta in this contest. After giving up six goals in the last two road games, being back at home seemed to serve the 33-year-old well. He'll need to take some of that solid play back to New York for Saturday's Game 6, where the Hurricanes will get their first chance to eliminate the Rangers.

    Raanta will likely start Thursday's Game 5 at home against the Rangers.

Frederik Andersen (lower body) has resumed skating for the Hurricanes though it's unclear when he'll be ready for game action. Raanta will likely get the start Thursday as the series moves back to Carolina tied 2-2.

  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: In goal for Game 4

    Raanta will guard the road goal during Tuesday's Game 4 versus the Rangers.

    Raanta played well in Sunday's Game 3 against New York, stopping 30 of 32 shots, but he ultimately came away with a loss due to a lack of goal support from his teammates. The 33-year-old Finn will try to help the Hurricanes secure a commanding 3-1 series lead by shooting for his sixth win of the playoffs in a rematch with the same Rangers squad Tuesday.

  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: Little help in Game 3 loss

    Raanta stopped 30 of 32 shots in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Rangers in Game 3. The third goal was an empty-netter.

    The low-scoring theme of this second-round series persisted, but this time it was the Hurricanes limited to a single goal. Raanta has still allowed just three goals on 81 shots across the three contests -- he's been a big reason why the Canes own a 2-1 series lead. The 33-year-old Finn will likely be back between the pipes in Tuesday's Game 4 as Carolina will try again for its first road win in the postseason.
