Slavin scored a goal and an assist during Saturday's 3-2 win over the Rangers in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Qualifier.
The 26-year-old snuck in off the blue line and opened the scoring just 61 seconds into the game, roofing a slick pass from Teuvo Teravainen over Henrik Lundqvist. Slavin then helped set up Martin Necas for the eventual game-winner midway through the third period. With Dougie Hamilton (undisclosed) unavailable, Slavin could be the key offensive sparkplug among Carolina's defensemen in this series.
Slavin produced a career-high 36 points in 68 games prior to the league suspending play in mid-March.
Tucked right in behind Dougie Hamilton's 40 points to pace the Hurricanes' back end, Slavin has officially bested his previous career-high 34 set as a sophomore in 2016-17 -- in 14 less games. More impressive, perhaps, is his eye-popping plus-30 (!) rating, which happens to be tied with Hamilton for third in the NHL. Hamilton is paired with Slavin at even strength over 70 percent of the time, so it's clear that this duo is quietly one of the most effective in the Eastern Conference.
Slavin notched two assists, one on the power play, in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Rangers.
The 25-year-old blueliner continues to produce. Slavin has one goal and 10 points over the last 11 games, and he should remain a strong fantasy asset down the stretch even if the Canes bring in defensive reinforcements at the trade deadline to help cover for the loss of Dougie Hamilton (leg).
Slavin picked up two assists in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Oilers.
It's his first multi-point night since Nov. 30. Slavin hasn't had many peaks lately, but he's also avoided any deep valleys, piling up a goal and eight points in the last nine games while filling in for Dougie Hamilton (leg) as Carolina's top offensive option on the blue line.
Slavin scored a goal on two shots, dished two hits and went plus-3 in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Coyotes.
Slavin's goal tied the game at two in the second period. The 25-year-old has a goal and four assists during his five-game point streak. He's up to five tallies, 27 points, 112 shots, 85 blocked shots and a plus-29 rating in 54 contests. It's all but certain Slavin sets a new career high in points by the end of the year.
Slavin notched an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Blues.
Slavin has one helper in each of his last four games. The 25-year-old's boost in offense is partially offsetting the loss of Dougie Hamilton (lower body). Slavin is at 26 points, 110 shots, 84 blocked shots and a plus-26 rating in 53 contests. He could challenge the 40-point mark at his current pace.
Slavin collected an assist and two PIM in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over the Canucks.
Slavin has helpers in his last three outings. The 25-year-old defenseman is up to 25 points for the fourth straight season, achieving the mark in 52 games this year. He's added 84 blocked shots, 108 shots on goal and a plus-26 rating in what's shaping up to be a career year for the Colorado native.
Slavin recorded two shots on net and four blocked shots across 26:39 in Sunday's 2-1 shootout win over the Islanders.
Slavin lost his blue-line partner Dougie Hamilton to a fractured leg, so the former may be leaned on to pick up the pace offensively. He's on a five-game pointless streak, but he continues to be strong defensively with a plus-26 rating on the season.
Slavin picked up an assist in Friday's 3-0 win over the Coyotes.
Slavin provided the secondary helper on Lucas Wallmark's second-period tally. The American blueliner has 22 points, 94 shots on goal, 69 blocked shots and a plus-25 rating in 44 contests this season. Bottom line -- he's reliable at both ends of the ice and on pace for the best of his five seasons in the league, which could see him land around 40 points by the end.
Slavin notched a primary assist and a minus-2 rating in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Lightning.
Slavin set up Andrei Svechnikov for the Hurricanes' first goal in the third period, but it was too late, as the team dropped its second straight game. The 25-year-old blueliner is having an impressive year, though, as he's accrued 21 points through 42 games. He comes with an intriguing fantasy floor as well, posting a plus-25 rating -- third in the league -- 93 shots on net and 68 blocked shots.
Slavin scored a goal, fired six shots on net and went plus-2 in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Avalanche.
Slavin scored late in the third period and 1:17 after Andrei Svechnikov tied the game. Slavin has 19 points, 80 shots on goal, a plus-19 rating and 60 blocked shots in 34 contests this season. The Colorado native's previous career high in points is 34, set in 2016-17, but he's on pace to establish a new personal best.
Slavin recorded an assist and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Jets.
Now with 18 points in 34 games, Slavin is now on pace to crack the 40-point mark for the first time in his career. That would be a tremendous accomplishment, considering he hasn't spent any meaningful time on the power play this season after averaging 1:48 with the man advantage last year. For the time being at least, Slavin seems quite able to get the job done at even strength, so keep him rolling for now.
Slavin had a goal and an assist in Saturday's 3-2 victory over the Lightning.
Slavin is taking that big leap forward this season -- his 16 points in 27 games put him on pace to flirt with 50 points. It's hard to believe he'll get there -- Slavin hasn't picked up a single point on the power play this season. But we're not betting against him.
Slavin recorded an even-strength assist in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Rangers, his third helper in the last five games.
Now with 14 points in 25 games, Slavin has been quietly putting together a stellar season, and he could top the 40-point plateau for the first time in his career. Skating with stud defensive partner Dougie Hamilton on the team's first unit has clearly been paying dividends for the 25-year-old blueliner. Enjoy the ride.
Slavin has just a single assist in his last six games, giving him 11 points in 19 games this season.
The 25-year-old blueliner has gone awfully quiet following a three-assist outburst Nov. 1 against the Red Wings. He's still on track for a career-high 40-point season, but he'll need to pick up the pace from here if he wants to accomplish that feat. The problem for fantasy owners is the Canes still rely on Slavin to hold the fort defensively as opposed to jumping in the rush. Currently, Slavin ranks fourth among Canes defensemen in offensive zone start percentage (ZS%) at 54.5 percent, behind guys like Jake Gardiner, Brett Pesce and Dougie Hamilton.
Slavin tallied three assists in Friday's 7-3 win over the Red Wings.
It's the first multi-point performance of the year for the 25-year-old blueliner. Slavin has never scored more than eight goals or 34 points in a season, but he's off to a fantastic start in 2019-20 with two goals and 10 points through 13 games.
Slavin recorded an assist for the second consecutive game in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Blackhawks.
The 25-year-old defender also added two shots on goal, two hits and three blocked shots, so he would have been a good start in most daily formats. Now with seven points in 11 games, Slavin is currently on pace to crack the 50-point mark for the first time in his career. Unsustainable? Perhaps, but for now he makes for a good selection in almost every fantasy format out there. Enjoy the hot streak while it lasts.
Slavin posted an assist and went plus-2 in Friday's 5-2 win over the Islanders.
The shutdown defender is on a four-game point streak now, with two goals and two helpers over that span. Slavin has also registered 10 hits and 12 blocked shots in five games this season, showing his ability to make an impact with and without the puck.
Slavin scored the game-winning, overtime goal in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Lightning.
Slavin received a pass from Jordan Staal on an odd-man rush and one-timed a shot past Curtis McElhinney to keep the Hurricanes undefeated. Slavin now has a goal in back-to-back games, and he's averaging 23:21 TOI through three contests of manning the top defensive unit with Dougie Hamilton. With just eight goals in 82 games last season, Slavin may cool off at some point, especially since he isn't logging power-play minutes.
Slavin notched two assists during Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Islanders in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinals.
He helped set up Teuvo Teravainen's tallies in the first and third periods, giving Slavin an amazing 12 points -- all assists -- through 10 playoff games, including four multi-point efforts.
