Wallmark scored his first career postseason goal in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Capitals in Game 2 of their first-round series.
The fourth-liner has assembled a three-game point streak with a goal and three helpers, dating back to the end of the regular season. He had a small breakout with 28 points in 81 regular-season appearances this year. Wallmark doesn't have much fantasy appeal, especially with the Hurricanes likely to lean on their stars more being down 2-0 in the series.
Wallmark tallied two assists Thursday, but Washington defeated the Hurricanes 4-2 in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series.
Both assists came on Andrei Svechnikov goals. Unfortunately, Carolina could not find an equalizing goal after getting to within one and actually conceded late to erase any thoughts of a comeback. For Wallmark, the two-point performance is out of character, as the bottom-six forward only managed 28 points in 81 regular-season games.
Wallmark scored his ninth goal and 26th point of the season in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Sabres.
Even though he's been bumped down to a checking-line role ever since Jordan Staal returned from the IR at the end of February, Wallmark continues to see a decent amount of ice time, averaging 14:42 per game since Staal's return. However, he's now centering the Canes' third line alongside Micheal Ferland and Jordan Martinook, so his opportunities to contribute offensively will be limited going forward. His fantasy value remains confined to deeper formats only.
Wallmark provided a helper in a 5-3 win over the Predators on Saturday.
Wallmark also recorded two hits and two PIM in the victory. In his first full season, Wallmark has generated 25 points (eight goals, 17 assists) in 67 appearances. He's also seen a modest 1:28 per game on the power play this season, where he has seven of his points, but he sees most of his time on the third line of a Hurricanes offense that scores three goals per game.
Wallmark had a power-play assist in 15:14 of ice time in Tuesday's win over the Kings.
The assist was his 15th of the season, and Wallmark has now produced a point in back-to-back games. Since the calendar turned to February, the 23-year-old has produced six points and seven blocks in 13 games. The fact that he's averaged 1:28 of power-play time per game this campaign will only add to his fantasy value.
Wallmark notched an assist for the second straight game in Tuesday's 4-0 win over Pittsburgh.
Wallmark has been logging heavier-than-expected minutes this season in the absence of Jordan Staal (upper body), lining up behind Sebastian Aho as the Canes' No. 2 center. He's also second behind Aho in faceoffs taken, so if your league counts faceoff stats, Wallmark could be of some use to you. From a scoring perspective, he's now just one point shy of the 20-point mark, and could make a run at 30 points with a strong push down the stretch -- not bad for a kid who only played in 11 games last season. Wallmark's fantasy value in medium to deeper formats is on the rise.
Wallmark notched a pair of goals and an assist in Sunday's 7-4 romp over the Oilers.
This was undoubtedly Wallmark's best game of the season, as his second-period power-play goal would eventually prove to be the game-winner. Wallmark spent most of the game centering the Canes' second line between Teuvo Teravainen and rookie Andrei Svechnikov, so look for that line combination to remain intact for the Canes' next contest -- Tuesday against the red-hot Calgary Flames.
Wallmark snapped a seven-game pointless streak with his third goal of the season in Monday's 3-1 win over the Flyers.
Wallmark continues to skate in place of the injured Jordan Staal (upper body), averaging 18:04 in ice time over the last 11 games, including 2:19 on the power play. Unfortunately, despite playing heavy minutes, he only has 13 points through 38 games, giving him only modest fantasy value in most formats.
Wallmark notched an assist in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Canadiens. It was just his second point in the last seven games.
Now with 12 points after 30 games, Wallmark has played a larger role for the Canes so far this season than anyone could have predicted. He's been seeing a ton of ice time lately, averaging 18:03 in the last three games, much higher than his season average of 14:37. That still doesn't give him a ton of fantasy value in most formats, but he does have upside potential for the rebuilding Canes, having scored 55 points in 45 games last season with AHL Charlotte. He's worth keeping an eye on.
Wallmark recorded a power-play assist in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Islanders.
The Canes have finally found a third-line combination that can generate some offense, as the unit of Wallmark, Jordan Martinook and Andrei Svechnikov have combined for four goals and 12 points over the last three games. After getting only a brief taste of NHL action over the previous two seasons, Wallmark has finally graduated to a full-time role this season. He now has 10 points through 23 games, with three of those points coming on the power play. This gives him modest fantasy value in deeper formats.
Wallmark managed a primary assist in Wednesday's 5-2 home win over the Maple Leafs.
Wallmark was technically credited with the apple, but it was more about fellow rookie Andrei Svechnikov chasing down a loose puck that belted along the side boards and tucking it into an empty net. Still, points are points, and Wallmark is up to six of those through 21 games this season. By no means is he tipping the scales in fantasy contests, but the Swede does get ice time on the No. 2 power-play unit to make him a rather sneaky option most nights.
Wallmark recorded two assists in Thursday's 4-3 win over Chicago.
The 23-year-old center had just one point through his first 12 games but has managed four assists in his last four contests. Considering he has just five points in 15 games, perhaps it's still best to monitor Wallmark's hot streak from afar.
Wallmark recorded just his second point of the season with an assist in Friday's 4-2 overtime loss to the Coyotes.
True, Wallmark hasn't been much of an offensive force for the Hurricanes this season. However, he's been deployed in more of a checking-line capacity thus far, so his scoring chances will understandably be quite limited in that role. He's currently centering the third line with Jordan Martinook and rookie Andrei Svechnikov, which gives him limited fantasy upside at the present time.
Wallmark skated for 8:39 of ice time in Thursday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Islanders.
Wallmark spent most of the night centering the fourth line between Jordan Martinook and fellow rookie Andrei Svechnikov. The 23-year-old was impressive at AHL Charlotte last season (55 points in 45 games), but he will likely struggle to make an impact at the NHL level this season given his checking-line role. Wallmark does not currently warrant any fantasy attention outside of very deep formats.
Wallmark signed a two-year contract with the Hurricanes on Thursday.
Wallmark's new contract is a two-way deal in 2018-19 and a one-way deal in 2019-20, which suggests the Hurricanes are hopeful he'll develop into a regular contributor at the NHL level over the next two seasons. The 2014 fourth-round pick was highly productive in the minors last campaign, racking up 17 goals and 55 points in 45 games, but he struggled to contribute with the big club, potting just one goal in 11 games.
Wallmark was extended a qualifying offer from the Hurricanes on Monday.
Despite just one goal and three points in 19 career NHL games, Wallmark racked up 41 goals and 101 points over the last two years with AHL Charlotte. The Swedish forward will turn 23 years old before the start of the regular season and should have a decent shot at cracking the NHL squad.
Wallmark was sent back to AHL Charlotte on Thursday.
Wallmark saw a season-high 14:21 of ice time during Tuesday's game against the Wild, but the Hurricanes don't appear to be impressed with what they saw. The 2014 fourth-round pick will once again stew in the AHL ranks -- where he owns 36 points in 34 games -- awaiting his next opportunity to impress the big-league brass.
Wallmark was recalled from AHL Charlotte on Friday.
Wallmark is having an impressive campaign with the Checkers this season, notching 36 points (13 goals, 23 assists) and a plus-11 rating over 34 contests. He's yet to secure a permanent spot with the Hurricanes, but may receive another opportunity to draw in following the latest recall. Should the 'Canes fall completely out of playoff contention, the 22-year-old could also see extended rink run as the season winds down.
Wallmark was returned to AHL Charlotte on Monday.
Wallmark's reassignment with the Checkers could be simply to keep him game ready while the Canes are off until Friday's clash with Pittsburgh. The center's minutes were limited versus the Devils on Sunday (4:28), but with 36 points in 34 minor-league contests, the 22-year-old should has likely shown enough potential to keep getting looks at a spot in Carolina's lineup.
Wallmark was recalled from AHL Charlotte on Saturday.
Wallmark potted his first career NHL goal earlier this season against the Blues, but the 2014 fourth-round pick has earned the right at another chance in the NHL following an explosive campaign with Charlotte. Through 34 games with the Checkers, the 22-year-old Swede has racked up 36 points (13 goals, 23 assists) and a plus-11 rating. He has yet to receive consistent ice time at the top level, but sustained success in the AHL could eventually force the Hurricanes to give him an extended look.
