Kraken's Andrew Poturalski: Done for season
Poturalski (lower body) underwent surgery Thursday and will be out 4-to-6 months.
Poturalski has been one of the AHL's best forwards over the last couple of seasons. He'll end his first campaign with AHL Coachella Valley having racked up 42 points in 38 contests, though he didn't receive a call-up to Seattle during the season. He is under contract for next season with the Kraken on a one-way deal.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Andrew Poturalski: Waived Sunday
Poturalski was waived by Seattle on Sunday, CapFriendly reports.
Poturalski dominated the AHL level last season, racking up 28 goals and 101 points in 71 games. He could see some time with the Kraken this season as an injury replacement.... See More ... See Less
Kraken's Andrew Poturalski: Signs one-way contract
Poturalski signed a two-year, one-way contract with the Kraken on Wednesday.
Poturalski led the AHL in scoring in 2021-22, racking up an impressive 28 goals and 101 points through 71 games with the Chicago Wolves. The 28-year-old forward should get every opportunity to make Seattle's Opening Night roster out of training camp.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Andrew Poturalski: Shipped back to AHL
Poturalski was reassigned to AHL Chicago on Sunday.
Poturalski recorded an assist in each game he was up with the Hurricanes on Thursday (vs. Detroit) and Saturday (vs. Los Angeles). It's not surprising that he hit the scoresheet at the top level considering the 27-year-old is the current AHL scoring leader with 34 points in 23 games.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Andrew Poturalski: Collects first NHL point
Poturalski picked up a power-play assist in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Red Wings.
Playing in only his third career NHL game and first since 2016-17, the 27-year-old recorded his first career point on the night's opening tally, as his blast from the top of the faceoff circle got stopped by Alex Nedeljkovic only for Nino Niederreiter to bang home the rebound. Poturalski was an emergency call-up due to a wave of absences in Carolina's forward ranks due to COVID-19, but he was leading the team's AHL affiliate in scoring at the time of his promotion. If he sees consistent power-play time, he could have some short-term fantasy value despite his skimpy resume at the top level.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Andrew Poturalski: Assigned to AHL affiliate
Poturalski was reassigned to AHL Charlotte on Wednesday, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.
The 27-year-old has recorded 22 assists and 12 goals through 23 AHL contests this season. He will be poised to bounce back up to the NHL if his excellent production continues in the minors.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Andrew Poturalski: Elevated to big stage
Poturalski will join the Hurricanes as an emergency recall ahead of Thursday's game against the Red Wings.
Poturalski pauses his AHL campaign with the Wolves as the points leader of that minor-league squad by a wide margin. He's dialed in 12 goals -- including six on the power play -- and 22 assists through 23 games. While he's a fine depth option for the parent club, Poturalski is 27 years old and he's long since exhausted his NHL prospect status. A native of New York, Poturalski made his debut with the Hurricanes in 2016-17, but he hasn't appeared in a top-level game since then. Still, he might be needed Thursday since several Hurricanes forwards are either injured or in COVID-19 protocol.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Andrew Poturalski: Promoted to top level
Poturalski was recalled by Carolina on Tuesday, Cory Lavalette of the North State Journal reports.
Poturalski has been exceptional in the minors this season, leading the AHL in scoring with 12 goals and 34 points through 23 contests. The 27-year-old forward could crack the Hurricanes' lineup as soon as Tuesday versus Minnesota.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Andrew Poturalski: Waived by Canes
Poturalski was placed on waivers Saturday, TVA Sports' Renaud Lavoie reports.
Poturalski is likely headed to the Canes' AHL affiliate, assuming he clears waivers. He had an impressive 43 points in 44 games last season at AHL San Diego, so he might be one of the first guys in line for a callup if the Canes run into injury trouble this season.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Andrew Poturalski: Grabs one-year deal
Poturalski agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way pact with Carolina on Wednesday.
Poturalski is coming off a phenomenal 2020-21 season in the minors, as he racked up 43 points in 44 games for AHL San Diego. The 27-year-old center's only NHL experience came back in 2016-17 during a previous stint with Carolina. If he can bring that scoring touch with him to the NHL, the New York native should be capable of breaking into the Canes' lineup this season.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Andrew Poturalski: On waivers list
Poturalski was placed on waivers Friday, James Mirtle of The Athletic reports.
Poturalski has just two games of NHL experience under his belt which he logged back in 2016-17 with the Hurricanes. He's been moderately successful for AHL San Diego, where he had seven points in 17 contests before losing time to injuries last year. The undrafted forward is a long shot to see any NHL time in 2020-21.... See More ... See Less
Ducks' Andrew Poturalski: Remains in Anaheim
Poturalski signed a one-year deal with the Ducks on Saturday, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
Poturalski spent last season in the Ducks' organization but stayed in the AHL, posting seven points over 17 games. The 26-year-old has a solid minor-league track record, as he recorded at least 22 goals in each of his previous two AHL campaigns, so he'll look to stay healthy and reach that threshold again next year....

Ducks' Andrew Poturalski: Signs with Anaheim organization
Poturalski signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Ducks on Tuesday.
Poturalski is a high-end AHL contributor, having taken home the Calder Cup Playoff MVP award last season. That said, he's never quite been able to stick in the NHL, with his only two appearances coming with Carolina back in the 2016-17 season. Poturalski will hope to make the big club in camp....

Hurricanes' Andrew Poturalski: Leading scorer for AHL Charlotte
Poturalski scored the game-winning goal to propel the AHL Charlotte Checkers to a 5-4 overtime win against the Laval Rocket on Saturday.
Poturalski leads the Checkers with 13 goals and 31 points in 34 games this season, along with 101 combined points over the previous two campaigns. Given his recent success at the AHL level, it seems like just a matter of time before the Hurricanes give him an extended look, especially considering how desperate they are for scoring. It would seem the 24-year-old Poturalski has a bright future ahead of him.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Andrew Poturalski: Lands extension
Poturalski inked a one-year, two-way contract with Carolina on Friday.
Poturalski racked up 22 goals and 27 helpers in 76 outings for the Checkers last season. Although he didn't crack the Canes' lineup this year, the 24-year-old should be on the short list of potential call-ups during the 2018-19 campaign -- especially if Carolina overhauls its roster now that it is under new management....

Hurricanes' Andrew Poturalski: Sent back to minors
Poturalski was reassigned to AHL Charlotte on Friday.
Poturalski heads back to the minors after just two games with the big club to make room for Sergey Tolchinsky, who was recalled in a corresponding move. Poturalski did not make the most of his opportunity with the Hurricanes, recording no points, one shot on goal, and a minus-3 rating while averaging 12:16 of ice time.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Andrew Poturalski: Brought up to big club
Poturalski was recalled from AHL Charlotte on Monday.
A former University of New Hampshire standout, the 23-year-old has recorded 16 goals and 48 points in 69 games for Charlotte this season. With fellow forwards Phil Di Giuseppe and Lucas Wallmark being sent down Monday, it's likely that the crafty Poturalski will make his NHL debut Tuesday in Minnesota.... See More ... See Less
