  • Hurricanes' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Grabs two assists in win

    Kotkaniemi provided a pair of helpers in Thursday's 6-2 win over Columbus. Kotkaniemi assisted on Brett Pesce's opening tally in the first period before setting up Seth Jarvis in the third. Kotkaniemi has been fairly productive of late with six points (two goals, four assists) in his last seven contests. The 22-year-old forward is limited to a bottom-six role, but his production is boosted on the power play, where he's averaged 2:00. Kotkaniemi now has seven goals and nine assists through 42 games.

  • Hurricanes' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Earns pair of points in win

    Kotkaniemi scored a goal on four shots and added a power-play assist in Friday's 4-0 win over the Panthers. This was Kotkaniemi's first multi-point effort of the season. He's gotten steadier on offense lately with three goals and two assists over his last five contests. The 22-year-old forward is up to six tallies, 12 points (five on the power play), 55 shots on net, 45 hits, 26 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 36 appearances. Despite the improved offense, he remains in a bottom-six role.

  • Hurricanes' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Scores goal in victory Tuesday

    Kotkaniemi netted a goal in Carolina's 4-1 win against New Jersey on Tuesday. Kotkaniemi's marker came just 20 seconds into the game. He has four goals and eight points in 32 contests this season. The 22-year-old had been held off the scoresheet in his previous three games.

  • Hurricanes' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Gets helper on winning tally

    Kotkaniemi was credited with an assist during a 1-0 victory over the host Red Wings on Tuesday. Kotkaniemi started Tuesday as the second-line center and earned the secondary helper on Brady Skjei's game-winning tally. The 2018 third-overall draft pick has 98 career points in 265 games. With Sebastian Aho and Jesper Fast sidelined, Kotkaniemi earned a point in back-to-back games for the second time this season but did not produce a shot, hit or block in 14:36 of ice time in the win.

  • Hurricanes' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Snaps scoring drought

    Kotkaniemi scored his third goal and sixth point of the season in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Islanders. Kotkaniemi had been struggling with just two points in his previous 15 contests, so it was nice to see him get back on the scoresheet. Whether this is the start of a trend remains to be seen, but Kotkaniemi saw a big bump in ice time against the Isles (18:12 versus 11:08 the previous game), which could be a sign of better things to come for the 22-year-old Finn.

  • Hurricanes' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Scoring drought continues

    Kotkaniemi failed to register a point for a seventh consecutive game Saturday against the Wild. He has just one goal and two assists in 18 games this season. Much more was expected of Kotkaniemi this year after the 22-year old Finn signed an eight-year, $38.5 million extension with the Canes back in March. Needless to say, he will have to bust out in a big way to have any hope of matching his 12-goal, 29-point season from a year ago. For now, he continues to skate mainly on the team's second line with Andrei Svechnikov and Seth Jarvis.

  • Hurricanes' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Ends goal drought

    Kotkaniemi scored a goal and added two PIM in Friday's 5-3 win over the Sabres. Kotkaniemi hadn't scored all year, and he'd gone seven games without a point entering Friday. He changed that with a third-period marker, which ended up as the game-winning goal. The 22-year-old was due to break out -- he recorded multiple shots on net in six of the seven games during his slump. For the year, he's at three points, 19 shots, 14 hits, eight PIM and a plus-2 rating while mainly playing as the second-line center.

  • Hurricanes' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Credited with helper

    Kotkaniemi notched an assist and two hits in Monday's 5-1 win over the Kraken. Kotkaniemi helped out on a goal by linemate Andrei Svechnikov in the second period. The 22-year-old Kotkaniemi is up to two assists and a plus-4 rating in three games, but he's not doing much else to generate his own offense. The Finn has just two shots on goal so far, so he'll need to take a few more chances himself to become more productive.

  • Hurricanes' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Garners assist in loss

    Kotkaniemi posted an assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 6-2 loss to the Rangers in Game 7. Kotkaniemi helped out on a Max Domi goal in the third period of the lopsided loss. Both of Kotkaniemi's assists in the postseason came in the second round after he was held off the scoresheet altogether in the first round. The 21-year-old had a reasonable 29 points in 66 regular-season outings, and he's locked in for the next eight years after signing a max-term extension with the Hurricanes in March.

  • Hurricanes' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Earns helper in win

    Kotkaniemi recorded one assist, two shots and one block in 9:07 of ice time versus the Rangers on Wednesday. Kotkaniemi logged his fewest minutes of the postseason, in part due to the lack of power-play ice time. With his tally, the 21-year-old winger brought a seven-game pointless streak to a close but shouldn't be expected to provide much in the way of offensive support without opportunities with the man advantage.

  • Hurricanes' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Finishes season on high note

    Kotkaniemi (lower body) had a goal and two assists in Thursday's 6-3 win over New Jersey. Kotkaniemi didn't take long to make an impact in his return from a five-game absence. He set up goals by Ethan Bear and Martin Necas before lighting the lamp 12:53 into the game for his third point of the night. The strong regular-season finale brought Kotkaniemi's totals in his first year with the Hurricanes to 12 goals and 17 assists.

  • Hurricanes' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Not in Tuesday's lineup

    Kotkaniemi (lower body) is not expected to play Tuesday versus the Rangers. Kotkaniemi is set for his fifth straight absence with the injury. The 21-year-old doesn't have an official timeline to return, as the Hurricanes have been tight-lipped about his status.

  • Hurricanes' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Still sidelined

    Kotkaniemi (lower body) won't play Thursday against the Jets, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports. Kotkaniemi will miss a second straight contest with his lower-body injury. Kotkaniemi has missed 9 of Carolina's last 11 games due to this issue, so at this point there's no telling when he might be ready to rejoin the lineup.

  • Hurricanes' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Won't play Monday

    Kotkaniemi (undisclosed) will not be available versus the Coyotes on Monday but is considered day-to-day, Sara Civian of The Athletic reports. Kotkaniemi was just two games back from a long-term injury absence that saw him miss eight games. It's not immediately clear if the absences are related but it's certainly not good news for a Hurricanes squad that will also be without Jordan Staal (upper body) and suddenly finds itself rather thin down the middle. Where Kotkaniemi fits into the lineup upon his return to action will likely depend on whether Staal is available, though top six might be a stretch for Kotkaniemi at this point.

  • Hurricanes' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Ready to rock

    Kotkaniemi (undisclosed) will return to the lineup for Thursday's game versus the Red Wings, Sara Civian of The Athletic reports.

  • Hurricanes' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Out 2-3 weeks

    Kotkaniemi's undisclosed injury will keep him out for approximately 2-3 weeks, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports. Kotkaniemi has already missed one game with the injury, and he's now set to miss at least six more. His 11 goals match his career high despite a career-low 11:56 of average ice time in his first campaign outside Montreal.

  • Hurricanes' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Out Tuesday

    Kotkaniemi (undisclosed) will not play Tuesday against the Lightning, Sara Civian of The Athletic reports.

The 21-year-old winger was injured on a hit from Lars Eller in Monday's victory over Washington. Carolina's next game is Thursday against Montreal, but it sounds like Kotkaniemi could miss multiple games.

  • Hurricanes' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Suffers injury Monday

  • Hurricanes' Jesperi Kotkaniemi: Signs maximum-length extension

    Kotkaniemi agreed to an eight-year extension with the Hurricanes on Monday. The contract is expected to carry an annual cap hit of $4.82 million, per PuckPedia, resulting in a total contract value around $38.5 million. The $6.1 million offer sheet Carolina used to lure Kotkaniemi out of Montreal gave him plenty of leverage with a $6.1 million qualifying offer to come if he hit restricted free agency this offseason. Agent Markus Lehto used his position of power to negotiate his client a contract with the maximum allowed term. Despite scoring a modest 11 goals and 23 points through 59 games with the Hurricanes, the 21-year-old Kotkaniemi now has a contract that will run through the remainder of his 20s.
