Faulk registered two assists and seven hits in Friday's 5-2 win over the Islanders in Game 4.
One of Faulk's helpers came on Sebastian Aho's power-play goal in the first period. Faulk has provided six points and 38 hits through 11 playoff games, and he's one of the top defensemen remaining for fantasy purposes.
Faulk recorded one assist and six hits over 26:10 of ice time and 4:36 of power-play ice time in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Capitals.
Faulk earned his third point in as many games, giving him 13 points (four goals, nine assists) over his last 20 contests. The Minnesota native earned a secondary assist by dumping the puck into the offensive zone, where Lucas Wallmark was able to find an open Andrei Svechnikov for the score. Faulk now has 35 points (11 goals, 24 assists) over 82 games in his 2018-19 campaign.
Faulk recorded his 31st point of the season with an assist in Saturday's 5-1 victory over the Wild.
With 11 points in his last 16 games, Faulk has been absolutely instrumental in the Canes' drive to lock down a playoff spot in the last few weeks. Earlier in the season, Faulk was suffering through long stretches without a point -- his longest was a 12-game drought from mid-November to mid-December -- but since Feb. 16, he hasn't gone more than a single game without cracking the scoresheet. The 27-year-old defender now has an identical stat line to last season (eight goals, 23 assists) and will be looking to add to those numbers over the final eight games of the regular season.
Faulk notched a helper in a 3-0 win over the Avalanche on Monday.
The assist gives Faulk his sixth straight year with 20 apples. He's at 28 points in 69 games this year. Faulk added four hits and three shots while taking a plus-2 rating in a well-rounded performance.
Faulk picked up a power-play assist and four shots on goal in a 5-3 win over the Predators on Saturday.
Faulk has been rolling lately, with a goal and three assists over his last five games. The American blueliner has eight goals and 19 assists in 68 games this season, as well as 122 hits and 180 shots on goal. Faulk is likely to finish in the mid-30s for points this season, which is in line with what's come to be expected from him.
Faulk (upper body) scored a goal and added an assist in Friday's 5-2 win over the Blues.
The blueliner ended up with two hits and a plus-3 rating in the contest. Faulk now has eight goals and 25 points this season, which makes it likely he'll crack 30 points again. Unfortunately, injuries are a large part of Faulk's career, as he's only played a full season once, in 2014-15, when he set his career high in points at 49.
Faulk (upper body) is expected to play Friday against the Blues, Sara Civian of The Athletic reports.
Faulk hasn't missed a contest all season, and this injury certainly doesn't sound serious enough to keep the power-play defenseman from the challenge of countering a Blues team that has rattled off eight wins in its past 10 games. He's added seven goals, 16 assists and seven man-advantage points through 63 games of his eighth NHL season.
Faulk is listed as day-to-day with an upper-body injury, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Faulk left Tuesday's game with the injury, but it's tough to judge whether he didn't re-enter due to the severity of the injury or the fact that the Hurricanes were leading 6-0. The 26-year-old has 23 points in 63 games this campaign. Expect an update from the team on Faulk's status before Friday's game against red-hot St. Louis.
Faulk suffered an upper-body injury and won't return to Tuesday's game versus the Kings, Sara Civian of The Athletic reports.
It's tough to grade the severity of Faulk's injury since there's simply no reason to insert him back into a game and risk further aggravation when the Hurricanes are leading 6-0. The 26-year-old has 23 points through 63 games, and he'll look to get healthy for Friday's game versus the Blues.
Faulk recorded an assist, two shots on goal and blocked six shots in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Stars.
Now with 21 points in 59 games, Faulk remains on track to hit the 30-point mark for the fifth consecutive season. The 26-year-old defender isn't the scorer he used to be (his 49 points from 2014-15 remains a career high), but Faulk has clearly been working on his defensive game this season. After recording a career-worst minus-26 rating last season, he is currently sitting at a tidy plus-6. It used to be that Faulk would kill you in leagues that counted plus-minus, but that is clearly no longer the case.
Faulk scored a goal, added an assist and recorded a plus-5 rating in a 5-2 victory over the Golden Knights on Friday.
On the ice for all five goals and none against, Faulk took his minus-4 rating into the positive for the season in one night. It was also his first multi-point night since Jan. 6. Faulk has four goals and 19 points in 51 games, which now has him just slightly behind his pace from 2017-18.
Faulk scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Sunday's 5-4 win over the Senators.
He opened the scoring just 72 seconds into the game with his third goal of the season, then helped set up Justin Williams for the game-winner midway through the third period. The multi-point performance was Faulk's first since Oct, 13, and the blueliner now has a modest 15 points in 41 games on the year.
Faulk scored his second goal of the season in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Bruins, giving him four points in his last five games.
After a month-long, 12-game pointless skid, Faulk certainly does seem to be back on track, scoring-wise. However, the question remains -- will Faulk's hot streak continue following the holiday break, or will he revert back to his usual quiet self? Only time will tell, but either way, Faulk remains a huge fantasy risk and should only be counted on in deeper formats.
Faulk snapped a 12-game pointless drought with an assist in Friday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Capitals.
Once thought to be emerging as one of the game's elite scoring defensemen with 49 points back in 2014-15, Faulk has all but slipped into obscurity since then. He continues to skate in a top-four capacity opposite Calvin de Haan on the Canes' second defensive pairing, but with just nine points in 31 games, he may just barely crack the 20-point mark this season. A fresh start with a new team may ultimately be what Faulk needs to jump-start his career again.
Faulk went pointless for the seventh consecutive game Friday against the Ducks.
Fantasy owners know full well that this is not unusual for Faulk -- he can get hot for a few games, then disappear for long stretches. Now with just eight points in 25 games, he will be lucky to crack the 30-point mark this season, given his current pace. Faulk is best left to the waiver wire in most standard formats.
Faulk has just three assists in his last 10 games, and just eight points on the season thus far (one goal, seven assists).
Faulk scored a career-high 49 points back in 2014-15 and, at the time, looked to be establishing himself as an elite scoring defenseman for years to come. Unfortunately, it's been all downhill for Faulk since then, as his point totals have consistently landed in the mid-30's ever since that record season four years ago. Now skating on the Canes' second defensive pairing with Calvin de Haan, he is currently on pace for yet another 30-plus campaign, giving him only modest fantasy value in most formats.
Faulk snapped a three-game point drought with an assist in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Coyotes.
Now with just six points through 13 games, Faulk is trending towards a 35-40 point campaign, which is roughly in line with his output over the past three seasons. He's still seeing a ton of ice time, however -- 23:35 against the 'Yotes, including a whopping 6:29 on the power play -- so his opportunities to contribute offensively should remain plentiful.
Faulk added a pair of assists in Sunday's 8-5 win over the Rangers.
The 26-year-old is now playing second-pairing minutes, but it didn't stop Faulk from bagging a pair of helpers in Sunday's contest. Faulk was a career-worst minus-26 last season, but much of that can be attributed to playing on a not-so-great team. As it currently stands, the American-born blueliner remains a top-four defenseman but he could play his way back onto the top pairing with more performances like this.
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.
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.
