    Necas recorded an assist in Monday's 5-3 victory over the Coyotes.

    Necas set up a Vincent Trocheck goal in the first period, snapping a 10-game point drought. Expectations were high for Necas following a 2020-21 season, when he put up 41 points in 53 contests.

  • Hurricanes' Martin Necas: Helps team rip Blues

    Necas stacked a shorthanded goal with an assist in Saturday's 7-2 rout over the Blues.

    Necas went coast-to-coast, wiggling around several defenders to open the scoring in this contest, and he also set up one of two goals for birthday boy Andrei Svechnikov. Necas' shooting percentage (9.4) leaves a lot to be desired, but he's turned in three consecutive seasons with at least 20 assists.

  • Hurricanes' Martin Necas: Dishes for score in win

    Necas supplied an assist in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Flyers.

    Necas continues to be an effective two way-contributor, as he's up to eight goals, 19 assists and a plus-6 rating through 46 games. Keep in mind that Necas is only 23 years old with plenty of untapped upside; this season, he's averaging 16:27 of ice time -- including 1:44 on the power play -- which provides a nice setup pattern for future campaigns.

  • Hurricanes' Martin Necas: Two points in Friday's win

    Necas picked up two assists in Friday's 5-3 win over the Predators.

    He had a hand in Carolina's first two tallies of the night. Necas briefly left the game after taking a puck off his knee, but he was able to return to the bench and saw his usual allotment of ice time.

  • Hurricanes' Martin Necas: Registers assist Monday

    Necas posted an assist and five shots on goal in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Necas helped out on a Nino Niederreiter goal in the first period. The 23-year-old Necas went four games without a point prior to the All-Star break, but a move back into the top six should get his offense going again. The Czech forward is at 23 points, 79 shots on net, a plus-4 rating and 34 hits through 39 contests overall. The Hurricanes' forward depth likely means Necas will occasionally drop to the third line, but he should still find ways to contribute, regardless of role.

Necas' status should be updated prior to Thursday's game versus the Senators.
