Necas tallied 16 goals and 20 assists in 64 games prior to the league going on hiatus in mid-March.
The 21-year-old has had a fantasy rookie showing, as his 16 goals rank fourth among NHL rookies and his points place him seventh. For the most part, those ahead of Necas on the list have received substantially more ice time than his 14:10, suggesting he still has another gear (or two) to shift into as he develops at the NHL level. Look for big things to come from the young Czech.
Necas scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 6-3 win over Toronto.
The 21-year-old continues to show his long-term offensive potential. Necas has five points (two goals, three assists) in his last five games and 34 points, including 16 snipes, in 57 games. He's a solid keeper target and is obviously delivering enough offense to make him a viable redraft league play right now.
Necas tallied a goal and added a helper in Friday's 5-2 win over the Devils.
Necas had a hand in Nino Niederreiter's opening tally in the first period. The Czech winger was then credited with a goal as a New Jersey defender swiped a puck into his own net.

Necas continues to provide solid depth scoring with nine goals and four helpers through 37 contests this season. The 20-year-old plays in a third-line role, and while he doesn't have much physicality in his game (35 hits, 13 blocked shots), his offense could help fantasy owners in deeper formats.
Necas scored two goals, one on the power play, and added two even-strength assists in Monday's 8-6 loss to the Maple Leafs.

Necas will miss his third straight game, but the fact that he was able to join his teammates on the ice Thursday is certainly a step in the right direction. Once the Czech is cleared to play, he should return to a bottom-six role and will likely see Brian Gibbons shipped back down to the minors.
Necas (lower body) isn't in the projected lineup for Tuesday's game against the Bruins, NHL.com's Matt Kalman reports.
Necas will miss a second straight game Tuesday, and the Hurricanes have yet to release any details regarding a potential timeline for his recovery. The 20-year-old rookie was on a roll in the month of November prior to sustaining his lower-body injury, racking up four goals and 10 points in 14 games, so fantasy owners should plan on keeping a close eye on his status ahead of Thursday's matchup with San Jose.

Necas scored a power-play goal and added an assist in Monday's 8-2 win over Ottawa.
It was the fourth goal of the season for the rookie center, who has found the scoresheet in five of six November games (two goals, four assists).

Necas might not be ready to contribute in shallow leagues but could be of use in deeper formats.
Necas scored a goal on four shots in Friday's 7-3 win over the Red Wings.
Now with seven points in 13 games, the 20-year-old Necas has done well thus far in his first full season with the Canes. He's been settling in nicely on the team's third line alongside Erik Haula and Ryan Dzingel, averaging 13:46 per game, with 1:53 coming on the power play.

The Czech forward has assists in two straight games and three points in five outings overall this season. Necas isn't generating many shots -- just eight so far -- and he's used in a bottom-six role that will suppress the 2017 first-round pick's ability to produce offense.
Necas has made the Hurricanes' Opening Night roster.
Necas only appeared in seven games with the big club last campaign, notching two points over that span, but he was highly productive during his time in the minors, racking up 16 goals and 36 assists in 64 contests. The 2017 first-round pick is expected to open the campaign on Carolina's fourth line, but he should also see time on the No. 1 power-play unit Thursday against Montreal.
Necas will be loaned to the Czech Republic in order for him to participate in the World Junior Championship.
Necas cracked the Opening Night roster for the Hurricanes, but the crafty pivot was only afforded seven games before management decided he'd be better off developing with AHL Charlotte. Still looking slender at 6-foot-1 and 167 pounds, Necas hasn't been fazed by the minor-league competition, adding seven goals and 15 assists over 26 games for the Checkers, so he'll welcome a new challenge on the international stage.
