Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Sharp in win over Philly
Kochetkov made 28 saves in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Flyers.
Travis Konecny spoiled his shutout bid in the second period, but otherwise Kochetkov stifled Philly's attack as he won his second straight start. The 24-year-old has looked much better since rejoining the NHL roster in November, going 3-1-0 over five appearances with a 1.73 GAA and .929 save percentage, and Antti Raanta may need to step up his performance level (3.73 GAA, .846 save percentage in November) in order to remain in the top spot on Carolina's depth chart....

Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Tending twine Tuesday
Kochetkov will defend the road net Tuesday against Philadelphia, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Kochetkov is coming off a 21-save performance in Sunday's 3-2 win over Columbus. He has a 2-4-0 record this season with a 2.91 GAA and an .881 save percentage over seven appearances. Philadelphia is tied for 19th in the league with 3.00 goals per game this campaign.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Bailed out late
Kochetkov stopped 21 of 23 shots in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Blue Jackets.
Kochetkov allowed two goals early in the third period, but the Hurricanes rallied over the last 10 minutes to bail him out. The 24-year-old earned his first win since Nov. 11. Aside from a six-goal mess versus the Avalanche on Oct. 21, Kochetkov has been steady but unlucky. Kochetkov's 2-4-0 with a 2.91 GAA and an .881 save percentage over seven outings this season. He'll likely continue to share the goaltending duties with Antti Raanta.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Facing Columbus
Kochetkov will patrol the home crease Sunday against Columbus, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Kochetkov has posted a 1-4-0 record this season with a 3.09 GAA and an .875 save percentage in six appearances. The Blue Jackets sit 24th in the league this campaign with 2.86 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Solid in relief against Oilers
Kochetkov turned aside 13 of 15 shots after replacing Antti Raanta (lower body) to begin the second period of Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Oilers.
Raanta got the win thanks to a four-goal first period by the Hurricanes, but Kochetkov made sure the lead was never in real jeopardy. It's not yet clear how serious Raanta's injury might be, but the team called his removal "precautionary" after the game, so he may not miss much time. With Carolina back in action Friday at home against the Lightning, it wouldn't be surprising if Kochetkov got the nod between the pipes. On the season, the 24-year-old sports a 1-4-0 record with a 3.09 GAA and an .875 save percentage through six appearances.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Falls to Philly
Kochetkov stopped 21 shots in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Flyers.
Philadelphia grabbed a 3-0 lead inside the first minute of the second period, and while Kochetkov shut the door the rest of the way, his offense couldn't put together a comeback against a suffocating Flyers defense that blocked 30 shots on the night. The 24-year-old netminder is just 1-4-0 through his first five starts this season with a 3.10 GAA and .876 save percentage, but with Frederik Andersen (illness) sidelined indefinitely, his spot on the NHL roster as Antti Raanta's backup appears to be secure -- at least until Jaroslav Halak, who signed a PTO with the Hurricanes earlier this month, shows he's ready for game action....

Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Set to start Wednesday
Kochetkov is expected to guard the home crease Wednesday versus Philadelphia.
Kochetkov will look to build off his 22-save shutout victory over Tampa Bay on Saturday. Although he has struggled overall this season -- a 3.11 GAA and an .876 save percentage in four contests -- Antti Raanta's own struggles coupled with Frederik Andersen (blood clotting issue) being unavailable has created an opportunity for Kochetkov to get considerable playing time if he goes on a run. The Flyers rank 19th offensively this season with 3.20 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: First shutout of season
Kochetkov made 22 saves in a 4-0 win over the Lightning on Saturday.
It was Kochetkov's first shutout of the season and fifth in the NHL. It's also his first win of the season after three losses. Kochetkov and Antti Raanta are splitting time, but a performance like this will get him more starts, especially with Raanta struggling. The 24-year-old Kochetkov could become a solid fantasy play behind a strong, deep Carolina team.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Starting Saturday
Kochetkov is expected to start on the road against Tampa Bay on Saturday.
Kochetkov has posted a mark of 0-3-0 with a 4.31 GAA and an .836 save percentage in three outings with Carolina this season. Nevertheless, with Frederik Andersen (blood clotting) unavailable and Antti Raanta struggling -- he has a 3.02 GAA and an .877 save percentage in seven contests this season -- there's an opportunity for Kochetkov to earn some playing time if he rebounds. The Lightning rank fourth offensively with 3.79 goals per game though, so this contest will be a difficult challenge for the 24-year-old goaltender.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Recalled from AHL
Kochetkov was summoned from AHL Syracuse on Monday.
In a corresponding move, Frederik Andersen (blood clotting) was placed on injured reserve. Kochetkov has a 3-0-0 record with one shutout, a 1.63 GAA and a .932 save percentage in three AHL outings this season. In three appearances with the Hurricanes this campaign, he has posted a mark of 0-3-0 with a 4.33 GAA and an .836 save percentage. With Andersen out of action indefinitely, Kochetkov will get a chance to improve upon those numbers while battling with Antti Raanta for playing time. Jaroslav Halak, who is with the Hurricanes on a tryout basis, may also get a chance to compete for starts if he is eventually signed to a full contract.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Sent to minors
Kochetkov was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Thursday.
Kochetkov has an 0-3-0 record, 4.31 GAA and .838 save percentage in three contests with Carolina this year. Frederik Andersen was dealing with an upper-body injury, but he was healthy enough to serve as the backup goaltender for Tuesday's 3-0 loss to Tampa Bay, and Kochetkov's demotion further supports the notion that Andersen is over his injury....

Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Good night, bad outcome
Kochetkov made 20 saves in a 3-0 loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday.
Kochetkov has started two straight and lost both, surrendering nine goals on 51 shots. He actually had a decent night in the net, but his teammates couldn't solve Jonas Johansson in the Bolts' net. It's the first time the high-scoring Canes have been shut out this season. Frederik Andersen (upper body) backed Kochetkov up Tuesday night and appears poised to take over the blue paint, which could force Kochetkov back to the AHL soon.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Starting in Tampa Bay
Kochetkov will defend the road net Tuesday versus Tampa Bay, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Kochetkov will surprisingly make a second straight start despite allowing six goals on 28 shots in a 6-4 loss to Colorado on Saturday. Kochetkov will be backed up by Frederik Andersen (upper body), who may not be quite ready to start yet.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Back with Canes
Kochetkov was recalled from AHL Syracuse on Monday, per CapFriendly.
Kotchetkov was sent down in what was apparently a paper move Sunday after he allowed six goals on 28 shots in a loss to Seattle on Friday. The 24-year-old Kotchetkov will rejoin the Hurricanes prior to Tuesday's matchup with the Lightning, where he'll likely back up Antti Raanta if Frederik Andersen (upper body) can't suit up....

Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Drops back to AHL
Kochetkov was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Sunday, per CapFriendly.
Kochetkov allowed six goals on 28 shots in his first start of the season Saturday versus the Avalanche. The end of his emergency recall suggests Frederik Andersen (upper body) may be ready to suit up Tuesday versus the Lightning.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Tagged for six goals
Kochetkov allowed six goals on 28 shots in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Avalanche.
The Hurricanes' pursuit of consistency between the pipes will have to wait for another game, as Kochetkov struggled here. He gave up four goals in a span of 7:14 during the second period, allowing the Avalanche to control the game. Kochetkov has surrendered eight tallies on 45 shots through two appearances, though Antti Raanta hasn't been much better while Frederik Andersen (upper body) remains unavailable. The Hurricanes wrap up their road trip Tuesday versus the Lightning.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Surprise starter Saturday
Although Antti Raanta was initially expected to start Saturday, Kochetkov is now slated to guard the road crease versus Colorado, according to Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site.
It will be Kochetkov's first start of the 2023-24 campaign, though he did stop 15 of 17 shots in a relief appearance during Thursday's 7-4 loss to Seattle. Raanta will serve as the backup goaltender. Frederik Andersen remains unavailable due to an upper-body injury. Colorado has a 4-0-0 record while averaging 3.50 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Appears in relief
Kochetkov allowed two goals on 17 shots in relief of Antti Raanta in Thursday's 7-4 loss to the Kraken.
Kochetkov ended up taking the loss, as he was responsible for giving up Jared McCann's game-winning goal. It wasn't a great outing for Kochetkov, but he was a bit sharper than Raanta, who has struggled in his first three appearances. If Frederik Andersen (upper body) is unavailable for Saturday's game in Colorado, Kochetkov may get a turn to start, though the Hurricanes haven't announced their goaltending plans yet....

Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Recalled Wednesday
Kochetkov was recalled from AHL Syracuse on Wednesday.
This is likely an insurance move with Frederik Andersen (upper body) leaving Tuesday's game against the Sharks. If Andersen misses time, Kochetkov will likely slot in as the backup to Antti Raanta.... See More ... See Less
