Top Hurricanes News

  • Hurricanes' Michael Bunting: Adds PP helper Saturday

    Bunting recorded a power-play assist on three shots in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Jets.

    Given his current pace, Bunting has a chance to crack the 50-point mark for the second time in his career after just barely missing that mark last season (23G, 26A). He continues to skate primarily on the Canes' second line and remains a decent fantasy option in most standard formats.

  • Hurricanes' Stefan Noesen: Closing in on career high

    Noesen notched his 31st point of the season with an assist in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Jets.

    Now that he's cracked the 30-point mark for the second consecutive season, Noesen has a chance to hit 40 points for the first time in his career. That's not bad for a guy who's currently skating on the Canes' fourth line, although Noesen does see supplemental minutes on the second power-play unit, where he's averaging 1:33 of ice time this season.

  • Hurricanes' Andrei Svechnikov: Two helpers Saturday

    Svechnikov picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Jets.

    He helped set up Teuvo Teravainen and Sebastian Aho for second-period tallies, giving Svechnikov his first multi-point performance in 11 games since returning from an upper-body injury. The 23-year-old winger has been productive this season when he's been on the ice, and through 40 contests he's delivered 13 goals and 37 points.

  • Hurricanes' Sebastian Aho: Two points against Jets

    Aho scored a power-play goal and added an even-strength assist in Saturday's 5-3 loss to Winnipeg.

    Both points came in the second period as the Hurricanes surged out to a 3-0 lead, but the third frame belonged to the Jets. It's only Aho's second multi-point performance in the last 15 games, but he's stayed productive with eight goals and 11 points over that stretch. Saturday's goal was the 24th of the season for the 26-year-old winger, a mark he's reached in each of his eight NHL campaigns.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Late collapse against Winnipeg

    Kochetkov stopped 27 of 31 shots in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Jets, with Winnipeg's final goal coming into an empty net.

    The Hurricanes grabbed a 3-0 lead in the second period, but Kochetkov had the wheels come off in the third, beginning with a Kyle Connor shot from the blue line 96 seconds into the final frame. The 24-year-old netminder hadn't allowed more than three goals in an outing since Dec. 23, but with Frederik Andersen (illness) nearing his return to action, Kochetkov can't afford many slips if he wants to retain a significant role in the Carolina crease. On the season, he sports a 16-11-3 record with a 2.41 GAA and a .910 save percentage.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Facing Jets

    Kochetkov will defend the home crease versus Winnipeg on Saturday, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    Kochetkov has been outstanding in his last 13 appearances, going 9-3-0 with a 1.89 GAA and a .932 save percentage. He has not allowed more than three goals since Dec. 23. Kochetkov is 16-10-3 with three shutouts this season. Winnipeg has 3.05 goals per game this campaign, which ranks 19th in the NHL.

  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: Moved to IR

    Raanta (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Friday, per CapFriendly.

    This is simply a paper move as Raanta has already missed the last 10 games. The 34-year-old doesn't have a clear timeline for his return at this time.

  • Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Two points including GWG

    Skjei scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Thursday's 4-2 victory over the Blue Jackets.

    Both points came in the second period as the Hurricanes blew open what had been a scoreless game after the first frame. Skjei is closing in on a career-best season with 33 points (eight goals, 25 assists) through 60 contests -- his previous best was 39 points, a mark he reached in both 2016-17 and 2021-22.

  • Hurricanes' Brett Pesce: Two helpers in Thursday's win

    Pesce notched two assists while adding five shots on net, one blocked shot, one hit and a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

    It's his first multi-point performance since Jan. 13, snapping a slump that had seen Pesce manage only one assist over his prior 15 games. The 29-year-old blueliner had reliably delivered at least 25 points in each of the last three seasons, but his offensive contributions have cratered in 2023-24, and he's eked out only three goals and 10 points through 50 contests.

  • Hurricanes' Spencer Martin: Revenge win in Columbus

    Martin made 20 saves in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Waived by Columbus in January, Martin got some revenge against the club he spent the first few months of the season with. The 28-year-old netminder has yet to take a regulation loss as a Hurricane, going 4-0-1 with a 1.97 GAA and .922 save percentage, but with Frederik Andersen (illness) nearing his return, Martin could be exposed to waivers once again or flipped to another club at the trade deadline.

  • Hurricanes' Spencer Martin: Slated to start Thursday

    Martin is set to start on the road versus Columbus on Thursday, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    Martin has saved 73 of 79 shots (.924 save percentage) to post a 2-0-1 record over his past three starts. While that's a strong stretch, he's 6-8-2 with a rough 3.21 GAA and .895 save percentage across 17 contests overall. The Blue Jackets, who are tied for 22nd offensively with 2.91 goals per game, should be a favorable matchup for the hot goaltender.

  • Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Drawing close to return

    Andersen (illness) might make his return next week, GM Don Waddell told Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer on Thursday.

    Andersen, who hasn't played since Nov. 2, has a 4-1-0 record, 2.87 GAA and .894 save percentage in six appearances this season. Once he's available, Andersen will likely reassert himself as Carolina's top goaltender. However, with Antti Raanta (lower body) and Pyotr Kochetkov also expected to compete for starts once all three netminders are healthy, Andersen might see less work than most other No. 1s in the league.

  • Hurricanes' Jordan Staal: Two points in win

    Staal tallied a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 victory over Minnesota.

    After the Wild scored halfway through the first period, Staal answered with a backhand goal of his own that beat Filip Gustavsson. Staal added an assist on the game-tying goal in the second period, provided one shot on net, three hits and a plus-1 rating in 15:15 of ice time. He had not scored in any of the three prior games and only has 15 points on the season. Unless you're in a very deep league or desperately need faceoff wins, it's best to leave Jordan Staal on the waiver wire and target players with a higher offensive ceiling.

  • Hurricanes' Jalen Chatfield: Returns from injury

    Chatfield had two hits and two shots on net in a 3-2 win over the Wild on Tuesday.

    After missing the last four games with an upper-body injury, Chatfield returned to his regular spot on the third pairing with partner Dmitry Orlov. Chatfield finished with two shots, two hits, one blocked shot and a minus-1 rating in 15:32 of ice time. He's not known for his offensive contributions and is primarily valuable for blocked shots and hits in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Hurricanes' Pyotr Kochetkov: Holds on for win

    Kochetkov kicked out 28 of 30 shots in a 3-2 road win over the Wild on Tuesday.

    After allowing two goals on only seven shots in the first period, Kochetkov turned aside the remaining 23 shots fired at him to stymie the Wild and to capture the win for the Hurricanes. He was especially strong on the penalty kill, stopping all six power-play shots and finishing the game with a .933 save percentage. With a recent shutout under his belt, Kochetkov is trending upwards and should continue to see the lion's share of starts for Carolina.

  • Hurricanes' Jalen Chatfield: Ready to return

    Chatfield (upper body) will play Tuesday versus the Wild, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    Chatfield missed four games with his injury. His return will bump Tony DeAngelo from the lineup. Chatfield is slated to play on the third pairing. He has 14 points through 49 contests and will set a new career high with his next point.
