Panthers' Erik Haula: Packs bags for Florida
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Hurricanes sent Haula, Lucas Wallmark and prospects Chase Priskie and Eetu Luostarinen to Florida for center Vincent Trocheck on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Haula started the year hot with 11 goals through 21 games, but his production has tapered off with just five points (one goals, four assists) over the last 20 contests. The 28-year-old battled a knee injury this season, too, after missing a big chunk of the 2018-19 campaign with a similar issue. As long as he stays healthy, Haula should fill a top-nine role with the Panthers, and he'll likely log power-play minutes, as well.

Hurricanes' Erik Haula: Two points with man advantage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Haula scored a goal and dished an assist, both on the power play, in Saturday's 6-5 shootout win over the Golden Knights.

Haula came back to haunt his former team, playing a key role in a four-goal third period for the Hurricanes. It was a much-needed performance for the 28-year-old, who entered Saturday on a nine-game point drought. Haula has 12 goals, 21 points and 71 shots through 35 contests this season.

Hurricanes' Erik Haula: Healthy scratch Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Haula is a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game versus the Jets, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

Haula's in a bit of a slump with five straight pointless outings and a minus-3 rating. He'll watch this game from the press box while Lucas Wallmark centers the third line. Haula will aim to get back into the lineup following the All-Star break.

Hurricanes' Erik Haula: Snags assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Haula posted an assist, two shots on goal and two PIM in Friday's 3-0 win over the Coyotes.

Haula has three tallies and five helpers in his last eight games. He's been a strong presence when healthy this year, with 19 points, 52 shots on goal and a plus-3 rating in 25 contests despite his third-line role. Six of the Finn's points have come on the power-play, but his production hasn't been overly reliant on that situation.

Hurricanes' Erik Haula: Posts secondary helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Haula dished out an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Flyers.

Haula has been quite impressive since returning from injury, as he's lit the lamp three times and added four assists over eight games. The veteran pivot is locked into the third-line center role behind Jordan Staal and Sebastian Aho, but Haula toils on the first power-play unit, where he's accrued six of 18 points this year.

Hurricanes' Erik Haula: Gets game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Haula scored a goal and added an assist with four shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Canadiens.

Haula's goal just before the midway point of the second period gave the Hurricanes a 2-1 lead and held up as the game-winner. The 28-year-old has been on a nice roll since returning from a knee injury just before Christmas, collecting three goals and three assists in those five games. For the season, Haula has 11 goals and 17 points in 21 games.

Hurricanes' Erik Haula: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Haula (undisclosed) will play in Tuesday's game against the Canadiens, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

Haula has been a fantastic third-line center, as he's generated 10 goals and five assists over 20 games. He'll continue to center Ryan Dzingel and Martin Necas going forward.

Hurricanes' Erik Haula: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Haula (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup with Montreal, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

Cooach Rod Brind'Amour is hopeful that Haula will be good to go against the Canadiens, so he can be considered closer to probable than questionable for Tuesday's contest. If he's able to go, the 28-year-old will slot into his usual spot skating on the Hurricanes' third line and second power-play unit.

Hurricanes' Erik Haula: Three-point effort in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Haula scored two goals and an assist in Monday's 8-6 loss to the Maple Leafs.

In just his second game back from a knee injury that cost him a month of action, Haula set a new season scoring high. The 28-year-old now has 10 goals and 14 points through 18 games on the year, but those tallies have come on only 41 shots, giving him an unsustainable 24.4 percent shooting rate.

Hurricanes' Erik Haula: Ready to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Haula (knee) is expected to return to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Panthers, Sara Civian of The Athletic reports.

Haula will make his long-awaited return to the lineup, as he's missed the last 15 games. Despite the missed time, Haula still ranks fourth on the team with eight goals. The 28-year-old will resume his third-line role, centering Ryan Dzingel and Martin Necas.

Hurricanes' Erik Haula: Traveling with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Haula (knee) remains day-to-day according to coach Rod Brind'Amour but is traveling with the team, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

Brind'Amour didn't offer much in terms of a timeline, telling reporters, "It might be soon. It might not be," but at least Haula is taking part in practice sessions. The center has missed the past 13 games due to his knee issue and should probably be considered a long shot to suit up versus Winnipeg on Tuesday. Once cleared to play, Haula will likely start in a bottom-six role, though he could challenge for more minutes as he gets back up to speed.

Hurricanes' Erik Haula: Won't make road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Haula (knee) won't travel with the team on its upcoming five-game road trip, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

Haula has already missed the last 10 games, and the team will carry on without him for another five. The veteran center will look to return Dec. 21 against the Panthers. Despite his extended absence, Haula still ranks fourth on the team with eight goals. Lucas Wallmark and Julien Gauthier should both get time centering the third line in Haula's stead.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Haula (knee) still hasn't resumed skating and will miss Friday's game against the Predators, according to Kurt Dusterberg's game preview.

Haula (knee) will remain out of the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers, according to Michael Smith's game preview for

Hurricanes' Erik Haula: Facing long-term absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Haula is expected to be sidelined long term due to his lingering knee issue. Coach Rod Brind'Amour told reporters, "He's going to be out for a while. He's not playing any time soon, I don't think," Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

Haula returned from a four-game stint on the shelf to play in the Hurricanes' previous two games, but appears to have suffered a setback. The team didn't provide a specific timeline, but at this point, fantasy owners should probably consider the Finnish center out indefinitely.

Hurricanes' Erik Haula: Set to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Haula (knee) is expected to suit up versus the Sabres on Thursday.

Haula missed the last four games due to his knee issue, but he's set to return in a fourth-line role against Buffalo. If the center can pick up where he left off after notching eight goals and three assists in 14 games, he may not be long for a bottom-six spot and could be bumped up sooner rather than later.

Hurricanes' Erik Haula: Watching from press box Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Haula (knee) is unavailable for Monday's game against the Senators, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

Haula will remain on the shelf for a fourth straight contest. The Hurricanes are on a three-game losing streak without their top goal scorer, as Haula paces the team with eight goals in 14 contests. Lucas Wallmark is expected to center the third line in his stead.

Hurricanes' Erik Haula: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Haula (knee) will miss Saturday night's game against Ottawa,'s Callum Fraser reports.

For a third straight game, Haula will sit with a bummed knee, but the Hurricanes' forward does appear to be close to returning. He'll now focus on getting healthy for Monday's game against these very same Senators. In 14 games, Haula has eight goals and three assists for 11 points.

Hurricanes' Erik Haula: No-go against New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Haula (knee) is slated to miss a second straight game Thursday against the Rangers,'s Kurt Dusterberg reports.

Coach Rod Brind'Amour labeled Haula day-to-day Wednesday, so although he'll miss a second consecutive contest Thursday, the Finnish forward could be ready to return as soon as Saturday against the Senators. The 28-year-old has had a fantastic start to the season, racking up eight goals and 11 points in 14 games, so fantasy owners will want to keep a close eye on his status heading into Carolina's clash with Ottawa.

Hurricanes' Erik Haula: Considered 'day-to-day'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Rod Brind'Amour said Haula (knee) is day-to-day, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

Brind'Amour clarified that Haula is dealing with a knee injury. It's nothing structural, but the team is being cautious considering Haula was held out of the final 68 games last year with a knee issue. The 28-year-old pivot has a shot to suit up Thursday against the Rangers, and the Hurricanes are hoping for a quick return for their leading goal-scorer (eight).
