Hurricanes' Roland McKeown: Signs two-way deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKeown signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Hurricanes on Wednesday.

McKeown spent the entirety of the 2018-19 campaign with AHL Charlotte, picking up four goals and 25 points while posting a plus-30 rating in 70 games. The 2014 second-round pick will likely remain in the minors for most, if not all of the 2019-20 season, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to have him on their radar.

Hurricanes' Roland McKeown: Rights retained by Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKeown received a qualifying offer from the Hurricanes on Tuesday, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

Alexander notes that Carolina's qualifying all of its RFAs, and McKeown is included among those. McKeown got his first taste of NHL action last season with three points in 10 games, but he'll be fighting an uphill battle to make the roster out of camp.

Hurricanes' Roland McKeown: Dropped to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKeown was demoted to AHL Charlotte on Sunday, per the official TSN transaction log.

Throughout 2017-18, McKeown was able to dress for 10 total NHL contests, notching three assists and going plus-3. The 22-year-old was sent down so he can participate in the Calder Cup playoffs, where he logged three assists in five games during a first-round exit last season.

Hurricanes' Roland McKeown: Bussed back to NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKeown was called up from AHL Charlotte on Sunday, TSN reports.

Carolina only had six defensemen on the active roster prior to this transaction. Originally taken by the Kings with a second-round (50th overall) draft pick in 2014, McKeown has two assists through seven games at the highest level. He's been an efficient producer, but it's probably too late in the fantasy season to try and catch lightning in a bottle with McKeown.

Hurricanes' Roland McKeown: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKeown was demoted to AHL Charlotte on Wednesday.

Since the Hurricanes aren't in action until Friday, the move to reassigned McKeown could be temporary, or it could be an indication that Justin Faulk (undisclosed) will be available against the Capitals. In his limited NHL appearances (seven), the 21-year-old McKeown garnered a pair of assists, despite logging a paltry 13:19 of ice time per game. The blueliner will rejoin the Checkers, for whom he has notched seven goals, 16 assists and an impressive plus-35 rating.

Hurricanes' Roland McKeown: Summoned by parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Hurricanes recalled McKeown from AHL Charlotte on an emergency basis Wednesday.

Brett Pesce (shoulder) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season, so McKeown will round out the Hurricanes' depth at defense as the 2017-18 campaign comes to a close. The 2014 second-round pick has played well in the minors this year, compiling seven goals and 23 points in 61 games while posting a highly impressive plus-35 rating over that span.

Hurricanes' Roland McKeown: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKeown was reassigned to AHL Charlotte on Monday.

McKeown logged one game during this latest stint in the NHL, in which he saw 14:45 of ice time and registered one shot, one block and a minus-1 rating. The blueliner's demotion could be an indication that Brett Pesce (upper body) is ready to come off injured reserve ahead of Tuesday's matchup with Pittsburgh.

Hurricanes' Roland McKeown: Gets promotion on birthday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKeown was called up from AHL Charlotte on Saturday.

Well, that's a fine gesture for McKeown's 22nd birthday. The Hurricanes had needed the extra depth ahead of the evening's contest against the Red Wings because Brett Pesce (upper body) isn't ready to be taken off injured reserve. McKeown made his NHL debut earlier this season and has managed two points -- both helpers -- in as many games.

Hurricanes' Roland McKeown: Sent down to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKeown was reassigned to AHL Charlotte on Thursday.

While McKeown could still return to the Hurricanes prior to Friday's matchup with the Blue Jackets, the move to send him to the minors likely bodes well for Brett Pesce (concussion) to slot back into the lineup. The 21-year-old McKeown picked up a pair of helpers during his brief stint with the big club -- which included making his NHL debut. The blueliner will likely headline the short list of potential call-ups should the injury bug strike again in Carolina.

Hurricanes' Roland McKeown: Chips in two helpers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKeown recorded two assists, two shots and a plus-2 rating through just 9:28 of ice time during Tuesday's 3-1 win over Florida.

The rookie certainly made the most of his ice time Tuesday. Still, while McKeown projects to develop into a well-rounded defenseman at the highest level, he's unlikely to carry value in the majority of fantasy settings this season. It's probably best to take a wait-and-see approach with the 2014 second-round pick.

Hurricanes' Roland McKeown: All set for NHL debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKeown will make his NHL debut Saturday. He's projected to line up alongside Noah Hanifin after practicing with him a day earlier.

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound defenseman was originally selected by the Kings in the second round (50th overall) of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. His hockey traits include supreme on-ice awareness and a big enough frame to outmuscle the opposition. This season, he potted one goal with two helpers in nine games for AHL Charlotte ahead of his call-up to the big stage.

Hurricanes' Roland McKeown: Promoted to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Hurricanes recalled McKeown from AHL Charlotte on Wednesday.

Brett Pesce (concussion) has already been ruled out of Carolina's next two games, so McKeown will round out the Hurricanes' depth at defense until Pesce receives a clean bill of health. The 2014 second-round pick has notched one goal and two assists while maintaining a plus-1 rating in nine games with AHL Charlotte this campaign.

Hurricanes' Roland McKeown: Sent down to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKeown was reassigned to AHL Charlotte on Friday, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

McKeown was a healthy scratch from Thursday's season opener against the Jets and was sent down to create room on the roster for the recently signed Jakub Nakladal. The 20-year-old McKeown has yet to make his NHL debut and while he will likely have to wait a little longer, he could be on the short list for a call-up once injuries inevitably start to pop up.
