  • Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: In danger of losing top-pairing role

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/6/18) Faulk, who sustained an upper-body injury to cut his 2017-18 campaign short, could slide down the depth chart in favor of Brett Pesce this season, Scott Burnside of The Athletic reports.

    As noted in this report, the Hurricanes have impressive depth on the blue line. Calvin de Haan signed as a free agent in July, and Faulk himself remains with the Canes despite rampant speculation earlier in the summer that he'd be on the move. Carolina's 2010 second-round (37th overall) draft pick has registered point totals of 37, 37 and 31 over the last three seasons, respectively, but he's posted an egregious minus-109 rating over seven years of service time in Raleigh. Sure, the Hurricanes allowed the fewest shots per game (28.9) last year, though it remains to be seen how much longer the Eastern Conference club will be able to tolerate Faulk's defensive miscues.

    Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Drawing trade interest

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/17/18) Faulk (upper body) is garnering league-wide attention, as he's a candidate to be traded with the Hurricanes said to be in the market for a goaltender, NHL.com reports.

    The Hurricanes figured they'd found a viable successor to veteran Cam Ward by signing Scott Darling to a four-year, $16.6 million contract last May, but Darling was a bust this year based on his 13-21-7 record, 3.18 GAA and .888 save percentage. Still, we can safely deduce that it will take a lot for the 'Canes to part with Faulk, who missed the final three games with an injury. The mobile offensive defenseman has averaged 0.47 points per game over seven years with Carolina and he's averaged 22-plus minutes ever since his rookie campaign in 2011-12. For what it's worth, forward Jeff Skinner is another Hurricanes player that other teams have inquired about ahead of the 2018 NHL Entry Draft and free agency.

    Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Future in question after disappointing season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/22/18) Faulk (upper body) took a step back in 2017-18, finishing with just 31 points in 76 games (eight goals, 23 assists) and with a career-worst minus-26 rating.

    Although he enjoyed a solid stretch to close the season with nine points in his last 14 games before succumbing to a season-ending injury, this does not excuse Faulk for his disastrous first half, in which he scored just 11 points over his first 41 games. In fact, the 26-year-old blueliner has done nothing but regress over the past three seasons, ever since scoring a career-high 49 points back in 2014-15. Looking ahead, Faulk is now entering his second-last year of a six-year, $29 million contract extension, and it wouldn't surprise us to see him wind up on the trading block as the team looks to upgrade its offense.

    Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Won't return for final two games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/4/18) Coach Bill Peters told reporters he doesn't expect Faulk (upper body) to suit up in either of the team's last two outings, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

    Faulk will miss a total of six of the Canes' final eight contests due to his upper-body issue. The defenseman struggled to find the back of the net this season (just eight goals), but still cracked the 30-point threshold for the fifth straight year. Heading into the 2018-19 campaign, fantasy owners should anticipate more of the same from the St. Paul native, who has been one of the few consistent producers for Carolina.

    Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Ruled out Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/18) Faulk will not suit up against the Panthers on Monday due to an upper-body injury, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    According to coach Bill Peters, "(Faulk has) played through it a little bit. It's going to be hit and miss," which puts the defenseman's status for the Canes' remaining two games up in the air. The 25-year-old compiled his fifth straight 30-plus point campaign this year, despite registering a mere eight goals. In Faulk's absence, Roland McKeown will slot into the lineup.
