Given that Kris Versteeg is in the final season of his contract, he wouldn't be shocked if Carolina trades him before the deadline.

"At the same time, I’ve really enjoyed my time in Carolina and I’d really like to be part of this young team and help them win," Versteeg added. "That obviously is up to management. If they want me and feel I can contribute to the team and have helped them enough, I definitely would like to be here. But in the end it’s a business and you find out when the time comes." Versteeg is certainly no stranger to the trade market. Carolina acquired him from Chicago in September in a cap space saving move for the Blackhawks.

Versteeg extended Carolina's lead to 3-0 early in the second period and got Flames goalie Karri Ramo pulled in the process. The Canes forward also added a power play goal in the third period. The 29-year-old has 10 goals and 30 points in 49 games this season.

Kris Versteeg had a goal and an assist in a 5-4 victory over Arizona on Sunday.

That's obviously an ideal response from Versteeg after he was a healthy scratch on Saturday. Hopefully this is something he can build off of as Versteeg got off to a hot start this season, but went cold for much of November and early December.

Kris Versteeg was spotted taking rushing with the first line in warm-ups on Sunday versus Arizona.

This is usually the sign not only that a player will play, but with whom. It's not written in stone just yet, but if you're in a league deep enough to value Versteeg you may want to get ready to pull the trigger. Versteeg has 12 assists and 14 points in 24 games thus far.

Kris Versteeg will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's match with Montreal.

Carolina is instead playing a trio of rookies recently called up from AHL Charlotte. Considering that Versteeg has no goals and four points over his last 13 games, this should not come as much of a surprise. Versteeg does have two goals and 14 points in 24 games thus far, for what it's worth.

Kris Versteeg recorded an assist in a 4-1 win Wednesday night.

Versteeg has only been kept off the scoresheet once in his last four games. He has two goals and 14 points in 22 contests in 2015-16.

Kris Versteeg picked up a pair of assists in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Kings.

After going seven games without a point, Versteeg now has points in two straight and has collected three assists in that span. He now has 11 assists and 13 points in 20 games thus far, not too shabby especially if you're in a deep league.

Kris Versteeg had a goal and two assists in Carolina's 4-3 loss on Sunday.

Versteeg has been on fire lately with five points in his last two games. That's brought him up to two goals and 10 points in 12 contests this season. That's a pace for nearly 70 points this season, but we expect his point-per-game numbers to fall back to Earth.

Kris Versteeg scored two assists in Friday's 3-2 win over Colorado.

Versteeg did all his damage in the second period, as he picked up a primary assist on Victor Rask's goal and a power play assist on Justin Faulk's goal. The 29-year-old has one goal and seven points in 11 games this season. Jeff Skinner scored the game-winning goal for the 'Canes.

Kris Versteeg has a goal and four assists in eight contests with the Carolina Hurricanes this season.

Versteeg was acquired by Carolina in September. He's been averaging 16:54 minutes of ice time in Carolina compared to 15:50 minutes last season when he was a member of the deeper Chicago Blackhawks. That extra minute might not sound like much, but that difference can be summed up by his increased power-play responsibilities with the Hurricanes. As long as he continues to get big minutes with the man advantage, it's entirely possible that he'll maintain his current pace and finish with around 50 points.

Kris Versteeg will open the preseason on a line with Eric and Jordan Staal.

Versteeg was acquired by Carolina from Chicago earlier this month. It's just the preseason so we shouldn't read too much into these line combinations but if Versteeg does stick on that line, he could have a good season. The 29-year-old had 14 goals and 34 points in 61 games with the Stanley Cup champions last season.
