Date: Team: Pos:

Andrei Svechnikov was on the ice for Monday's practice and he seemed to be fine.

Svechnikov tweaked something in the third period of Sunday's win over Arizona, but the 18-year-old appears to have bounced back quickly. Carolina doesn't play until Thursday and Svechnikov should be ready by then. He has nine goals and 17 points in 32 games this season.
Dec 17 - 3:55 PM

Warren Foegele scored his fourth of the season Sunday.

The goal snapped a 27-game goalless streak for the rookie who had three goals in his first four games and then went into the prolonged slump. It was also his first point in 25 contests as Foegele finally added to his points total. He has no fantasy value at this time.
Dec 17 - 6:16 AM

Janne Kuokkanen has been sent to Charlotte of the AHL.

Kuokkanen made three appearances with the Hurricanes during his recent call-up. His season debut came on Thursday night against Montreal. Carolina doesn't play again until Thursday, so Kuokkanen could be back with the team by then if some injured players aren't ready to return.
Dec 16 - 5:09 PM

Scott Darling has been sent to the AHL's Charlotte Checkers.

Darling made one start for Carolina following his previous demotion to the minors and he allowed five goals on 29 shots in a 6-5 shootout loss to Washington. He could be brought back prior to Thursday's game against Detroit if Curtis McElhinney isn't ready to return from injury.
Dec 16 - 5:07 PM

Clark Bishop has been assigned to the minors.

Bishop has one goal and one assist in 15 games for the Hurricanes this season. Carolina does not play until Thursday, so he could be back with the big club if he's needed.
Dec 16 - 5:04 PM

Andrei Svechnikov tweaked something in the third period against Arizona.

Svechnikov was forced to leave the game as a result. He was seen in the weight room after the contest and there was no update on his status. Svechnikov scored his ninth goal of the year in a 3-0 win for the Hurricanes prior to his exit.
Dec 16 - 4:24 PM

Petr Mrazek turned aside all 23 shots he faced for a 3-0 win over Arizona on Sunday.

Mrazek didn't face double digits in shots in any period for his first shutout of the season. The most shots he faced came in the third period when the Coyotes got a total of nine on target. Mrazek will see his record improve to 5-6-2 on the year.
Dec 16 - 4:20 PM

Sebastian Aho extended his point streak to five straight games on Sunday.

Aho scored a goal in a 3-0 win over Arizona. He has five goals and three helpers during his recent scoring spree. Aho also had three shots, five hits and one block in Sunday's contest. Warren Foegele and Andrei Svechnikov also scored in the win.
Dec 16 - 4:16 PM

Micheal Ferland (upper body) won't play Sunday.

Ferland suffered an upper-body injury on Tuesday in his return from a concussion. Consider him day-to-day for now as there is no timetable at this time for his return.
Dec 16 - 12:43 PM

Haydn Fleury is dealing with a concussion.

Fleury didn't play on Friday and he won't play on Sunday either. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Dec 16 - 12:41 PM

Petr Mrazek will be in the crease Sunday afternoon versus Arizona.

Mrazek has lost his last two starts and he has surrendered nine goals during that span. He has posted a 4-6-2 record this year with a 2.77 goals-against average and .892 save percentage.
Dec 16 - 12:34 PM

Scott Darling allowed five goals on 29 shots in Friday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Washington Capitals.

Darling and the Hurricanes were in good shape in the second period, as they built up a 4-1 lead. Unfortunately for them, they allowed the high-powered Caps to score four goals in a row. Hurricanes captain Justin Williams managed to tie the game on the power play in the third period, but Washington scored two goals in the shootout to sink the 'Canes. Darling now owns a 2-4-2 record with a 3.34 goals-against-average and a .884 save percentage. His last win came on Nov. 12.
Dec 14 - 11:00 PM

Sebastian Aho had two goals and two assists in Friday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Washington Capitals.

The Hurricanes managed to go up 4-1 on the Caps in the second period, but they also allowed their opponent to score four consecutive goals. Trailing 5-4 in the third frame, the 'Canes got the equalizing goal from captain Justin Williams with just over six minutes remaining in regulation. In the end, they ended up dropping the decision in the shootout. Aho finished the night with a power-play goal, a shorthanded goal, a power-play assist and an even-strength helper. The 21-year-old has seven points during his current four-game point streak. He's up to 11 goals and 33 points in 31 games this season. He's a must-own in all fantasy formats.
Dec 14 - 10:55 PM

Haydn Fleury won't play in Friday's game because of an upper-body injury.

Fleury is out of the lineup after playing on Thursday. He's recorded an assist in 10 games this season. Trevor van Riemsdyk will play instead.
Dec 14 - 7:36 PM

Scott Darling will start for the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday.

Darling cleared waivers and was sent to the AHL, but Carolina recalled him after Curtis McElhinney suffered a lower-body injury. This is a big opportunity for Darling to re-establish himself or at least set himself on that path.
