Svechnikov (ankle) told reporters he would have been ready for the next round had the Hurricanes advanced, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.
Svechnikov racked up four goals, three helpers and 14 shots in six postseason appearances prior to suffering his ankle injury. During the regular season, the Russian winger recorded career highs in goals (24) and assists (37).
Svehcnikov (leg) is expected to be fully fit ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Prior to getting hurt, Svechnikov tallied four goals and three assists in six postseason contests. The 19-year-old winger posted a second consecutive 20-goal campaign, setting new career highs in goals (24), assists (37) and power-play points (20). The Russian should continue to see more opportunities on the Canes' top line and could see his point totals climb again in 2020-21.
Svechnikov (leg), as expected, will not be in action against the Bruins for Game 3 on Monday, Sara Civian of The Athletic reports.
Considering coach Rod Brind'Amour previously told reporters that Svechnikov was doubtful to suit up the rest of the best-of-seven series, fantasy managers shouldn't be surprised to see him on the shelf. For now, Nino Niederreiter looks to get the first crack at the top-line role, though others, including Martin Necas, could earn a shot, as well.
Head coach Rod Brind'Amour relayed that Svechnikov (leg) had an MRI on Sunday, and he would "highly doubt" the forward will return this series, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Brind'Amour had no real update on the severity of Svechnikov's injury, but this was bad news for the 20-year-old's chances of returning anytime soon. At the very least, it's highly unlikely that Svechnikov will play in Game 4 versus the Bruins, and he may need to wait until a potential Round 2 to get back into action. This is a devestating development for the Hurricanes, as Svechnikov is a fixture in the top six and had racked up seven points over six games. Ryan Dzingel will likely bump back into the lineup if Svechnikov is indeed out Monday.
Svechnikov was helped off the ice after suffering an apparent leg injury during Saturday's Game 3 against the Bruins, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Svechnikov suffered the injury when he got tangled up with Boston's Zdeno Chara in front of the Bruins net and fell backward, bending his right leg awkwardly on his way down. Any extended absence for Svechnikov would be brutal for the Hurricanes and fantasy players alike, as he's been Carolina's best forward during postseason play, racking up four goals and seven points through the team's first six playoff games. Another update on the 20-year-old winger should be released ahead of Monday's Game 4.
Svechnikov scored a goal on his lone shot and added an assist with three hits and two PIM in Thursday's 3-2 win over Boston in Game 2.
Svechnikov gave the Hurricanes their first lead of the night when he buried a point-blank wrister from the slot, making it a 2-1 game. He had assisted on Teuvo Teravainen's power-play goal just 88 seconds earlier. Svechnikov has now found the scoresheet in five of six playoff games, racking up four goals and three assists with a sterling plus-7 rating.
Svechnikov recorded an assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Rangers in Game 3.
Svechnikov set up Teuvo Teravainen for the game-tying goal in the second period. During the three-game sweep, Svechnikov posted three goals, two assists, eight shots and 12 hits. The mix of top-line point production and physicality could make the Russian winger a valuable addition to DFS lineups in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.
Svechnikov scored three goals, one on the power play, in Monday's 4-1 win over the Rangers in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.
It's the first postseason hat trick in franchise history, dating back to the team's days in Hartford. Svechnikov lit the lamp once in each period, with his power-play tally in the second holding up as the eventual game winner. The 20-year-old now has four points through the first two games of the series.
Svechnikov has 24 goals, 61 points and a plus-9 rating in 68 games this season.
The Russian winger will turn 20 later this month and has already made drastic improvements at the NHL level. After scoring 37 points in 82 games as a rookie, Svechnikov scored at nearly a point-per-game pace in 2019-20 and could reach the 70-point mark if the NHL resumes the regular season. He's established himself as one of the top young forwards in the league.
Svechnikov notched two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over the Islanders.
He nearly scored the OT winner, but his attempt to swat a deflected puck out of midair rang off the crossbar and fell to Vincent Trochek, who buried it behind Thomas Greiss.

Svechnikov picked up an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Stars.
He chipped in on Sebastian Aho's second-period tally, extending lengthy point streaks for both players.

Svechnikov scored the game-winning, power-play goal on two shots Tuesday in a 4-1 win over the Predators.
Svechnikov extended his point streak to eight games (five goals, five assists), which spans the entire month of February to date. The 19-year-old has been electrifying as a sophomore, racking up 24 goals and 55 points with a plus-17 rating in 59 games. He's also rung up 42 PIM for fantasy owners.
Svechnikov scored a goal on a team-high four shots in Friday's 5-2 win over the Devils.
Svechnikov's second-period tally ended up being the game-winner, his fourth such goal this year. During his six-game point streak, the Russian has four scores and four helpers. The 19-year-old is up to 23 goals, 53 points, 150 shots, 95 hits and a plus-15 rating in 57 appearances.
Svechnikov managed an assist, four hits and two shots on goal in Saturday's 6-5 shootout win over the Golden Knights.

Svechnikov scored twice and added an assist in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Coyotes.
Svechnikov potted his two tallies in a span of 5:55 during the second period. The Russian winger has been excellent with four goals and four assists in his last six games.

Svechnikov posted an assist, two hits and two PIM in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Blues.
Svechnikov had the secondary helper on Sebastian Aho's second-period goal. Over his last five games, Svechnikov has produced two goals and three assists. He's at 47 points, 138 shots, 88 hits and 40 PIM through 53 contests overall.
Svechnikov scored a goal on two shots, dished three hits and went plus-2 in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over the Canucks.
He's now matched his rookie-year goal total, and based on a little more playmaking, he's now at 46 points in 52 games in his sophomore season. Svechnikov has added 138 shots on net, 86 hits, 38 PIM and a plus-14 rating this year. The second overall pick from 2018 looks like a burgeoning superstar, and he'll approach the 70-point mark at his current pace.
Svechnikov had a pair of assists and four shots in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Winnipeg. He also had two PIM.

Svechnikov scored a goal on three shots in Sunday's 2-1 shootout win over the Islanders.
Svechnikov put an end to a six-game goal drought -- his longest of the season -- when he opened the scoring just under six minutes into the game. His next goal will give him 20 for the second year in a row, although he needed the full 82 games to do it as a rookie in 2018-19. That's an awfully impressive resume for a player who won't turn 20 until late March.
Svechnikov recorded an assist and two PIM in Friday's 3-0 win over the Coyotes.
Svechnikov won a puck battle along the boards and set up Warren Foegele for the opening goal at 14:20 of the first period.

That counts as a bit of a cool period -- he's at 42 points (18 goals, 24 helpers), 122 shots on goal and 71 hits through 44 contests overall.
