Lorentz posted an assist in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Predators.
With one game left to play, Lorentz now has eight points (2G, 6A) in his first full NHL season. He has been skating primarily in a fourth-line role this season, but the 25-year-old Kitchener native was the second-leading scorer at AHL Charlotte last year with 23 goals and 46 points, so Lorentz could carve out a more prominent offensive role with the Canes in the next season or two.
Lorentz produced an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Stars.
Lorentz has been modestly productive lately with a goal and three helpers in his last seven outings. The 25-year-old has seven points, 35 shots, 41 hits and a plus-1 rating through 38 contests as a fourth-line forward.
Lorentz notched just his fourth point of the season with an assist in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Predators.
Despite the helper, Lorentz continues to skate mainly on the Canes' fourth line, averaging fewer than 10 minutes per game. Thus, his fantasy value remains confined to the deepest of formats only.
Lorentz scored a goal and added two hits in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Predators.
Lorentz put the Hurricanes ahead 3-0 in the second period with his first NHL goal. The Predators got two tallies back, but they never tied the game, and Lorentz earned his first game-winning goal. The 24-year-old forward has two points, 14 hits and eight shots on net through 12 outings in a fourth-line role.
Lorentz was promoted to the active roster Saturday, per CapFriendly.
As usual, Lorentz is on the active roster on a game day. He's filling a fourth-line role in Saturday's contest versus the Panthers.
Lorentz was demoted to the taxi squad Friday, CBS Sports reports.
Lorentz has suited up for nine games with Carolina this season, including the last four contests. He's tallied one assist and 12 hits during that span. The 6-foot-4 forward will likely stay in the lineup as long as Teuvo Teravainen (concussion) is out.
Lorentz ascended from the taxi squad to the active roster Wednesday, per CapFriendly.
Lorentz played in Wednesday's contest against the Lightning, recording a shot, two hits and two blocks in 11:31 of ice time. He's now skated in eight games for the Hurricanes this year, recording a lone assist, so he doesn't offer much fantasy value.
Lorentez was designated for the taxi squad Tuesday, per CapFriendly.
This is likely a paper move, as we expect Lorentz to be back in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Lightning. The 24-year-old has an assist, nine hits and three blocked shots through seven games in a bottom-six role this year.
Lorentz was promoted to the active roster Saturday, per CBS Sports.
Lorentz jumps into the lineup in a bottom-six role with Teuvo Teravainen (upper body) out.
Lorentz was demoted to the taxi squad Sunday, per CBS Sports.
Lorentz continues to shuffle between levels. His playing time will likely run out once Cedric Paquette is ready to join the Hurricanes' lineup in a fourth-line role.
Lorentz was designated for the taxi squad Friday, CBS Sports reports.
Lorentz made his NHL debut Jan. 28 and has played in four total games, recording an assist and five hits. with Martin Necas (undisclosed) out for "a little while," Lorentz could secure a more consistent role. However, he'll need to be activated from IR before suiting up in his next game.
The Hurricanes added Lorentz to the active roster Thursday, CBS Sports reports.
Lorentz has played in three of the past four games for the Hurricanes, and this news suggests he'll re-enter the lineup for Thursday's game against Chicago. In three games this season, the 24-year-old has one assist and dished out five hits. He'll likely handle a bottom-six role should he elevate to the lineup Thursday.
Lorentz was assigned to the taxi squad Monday, TSN reports.
Lorentz has played the last three games, but with multiple players being lifted from COVID-19 protocol, he's expected to sit out Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks. The 24-year-old can continue practicing and traveling with the team while on the taxi squad.
The Hurricanes added Lorentz to their active roster Thursday.
Teuvo Teravainen, Jordan Martinook, Warren Foegele and Jeser Fast are all currently sidelined due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols, so Lorentz is expected to make his NHL debut Thursday, skating on Carolina's third line against Tampa Bay. The 2015 seventh-round pick notched 46 points in 61 AHL appearances last season.
The Hurricanes waived Lorentz on Friday, TSN.ca reports.
Given the Canes' stacked forward roster, there was little chance Lorentz was going to win himself a spot on the team out of training camp this year. He has yet to play a game at the NHL level, however he did manage to post 46 points in 61 games at AHL Charlotte last season, so there's some potential there.
Lorentz inked a two-year, two-way deal with Carolina on Thursday.
Lorentz was with the club for the postseason but still hasn't made his NHL debut. In 61 appearances for AHL Charlotte last year, the 2015 seventh-round selection recorded 23 goals and 23 assists. The 24-year-old center should compete for a spot on the 23-man roster next season, though he may need to spend some time in the press box even if he does secure a spot on the roster.
