  • Hurricanes' Victor Rask: Will sit out month or more

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/16/18) Coach Rod Brind'Amour relayed that Rask will miss months after cutting tendons in his fingers, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports. "It's not going to be quick. It's going to be months, for sure."

    Although there's no specific timeline, a multi-month absence is a brutal report for the Hurricanes. Rask is a solid secondary scorer, posting 30 goals and 76 points over the last two seasons while firing 312 shots on goal. This could open the door for Martin Necas to crack the opening night lineup.

    Hurricanes' Victor Rask: Undergoes hand surgery, out indefinitely

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/13/18) Rask underwent surgery on his right hand following a kitchen incident and is out indefinitely.

    Here's more bad news from the guy who missed the final nine games of the 2017-18 campaign with a shoulder injury, which also required surgery. According to this official report from the Hurricanes, Rask injured the fourth and fifth fingers on his right hand while chopping food. Czech prospect Martin Necas' odds of cracking the Opening Night roster are seemingly higher than ever in the wake of this unfortunate news about Rask, a middle-six contributor.

    Hurricanes' Victor Rask: Surgery on tap

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/22/18) Rask (shoulder) is set to undergo shoulder surgery after it was announced Wednesday that he'll be out for the season, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

    The Hurricanes won't make the playoffs, so Rask will be able to get an early start on his rehab in an effort to be healthy for training camp in the fall. A power-play spot has opened up now that the 25-year-old is out of commission, and early signs point to rookie Valentin Zykov getting a look there.

    Hurricanes' Victor Rask: Out for season with shoulder injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/18) Rask has sustained a shoulder injury that will sideline him for the rest of the season.

    A decent two-way center, Rask finishes with a career-low 31 points (14 goals, 17 assists) through 71 games, though he did manage to score four times to complement seven helpers on the man advantage. Rask's shoulder injury seemed to come out of nowhere, but it's possible the Hurricanes are being extra cautious with a player that they have signed through the 2021-22 campaign and comes with a relatively hefty price tag of $4 million per season.

    Hurricanes' Victor Rask: Adds power-play marker despite reduced minutes

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/13/18) Rask scored a power-play goal Monday against the Rangers, but saw his ice time dip to a season-low 10:50 in the 6-3 loss.

    The good news is Rask has been much more consistent of late, with nine points in his last 13 games, putting him just one point shy of the 30-point mark. However, his reduced ice time does not bode well in terms of future production. Rask was seeing 15-20 minutes a game in a top-six role just a few weeks ago, but now finds himself centering the team's third line.
