Zach Boychuk will be a healthy scratch Monday night against the Canadiens.

Boychuk has been suiting up for the 'Canes on a regular basis but will give way to Jay McClement Monday night. Boychuk has three goals and two assists in 29 games played this season and shouldn't be owned in fantasy leagues. Tim Gleason will also be a healthy scratch for Carolina Monday night.

Zach Boychuk scored a goal in the Hurricanes' 4-1 victory against Calgary Monday night.

Boychuk has three goals and five points in 12 games this season. The 25-year-old has excelled in the minors for years, but he has struggled to earn a permanent roster spot. That might change in 2014-15 as he's already played in more NHL contests this season than he did in the entirety of 2013-14.

Zach Boychuk scored a goal and added an assist for Carolina, but the team suffered a 4-3 shootout loss to the Sabres Tuesday.

Boychuk's prospect status is a distant memory at this point, but there's enough talent lurking in there to remind us of why he was such a high draft pick to begin with. He has no fantasy value. Chris Terry and Riley Nash also scored goals for Carolina in the losing effort.

The Carolina Hurricanes have recalled Zach Boychuk from Charlotte of the AHL.

Zach Boychuk successfully cleared waivers and has been sent to the minors.

Boychuk was hoping for a better outcome to the Hurricanes' 2014 training camp after he scored 36 goals and 74 points in 69 AHL contests last season. "I'm extremely disappointed," said Boychuk. "Obviously, after the year I had last year, I thought I was making strides. I put everything I had into this summer with the hope of being in Raleigh." At the age of 25, he's running out of time to establish himself in the NHL. On a positive note, he credited new Hurricanes coach Bill Peters with sitting Boychuk down and mapping out a plan for him.

Zach Boychuk has been placed on waivers by Carolina.

If he clears then he'll be assigned to AHL Charlotte. Boychuk was dynamite in the minors last season, with 36 goals and 74 points in 69 games, but he's been unable to carve out a place for himself in the NHL so far in his career.

Zach Boychuk seems to feel like he might be running out of time to establish himself as an NHL regular.

Boychuk excelled in the AHL last season with 36 goals and 74 points in 69 AHL games, but he'll turn 25 in October and has just 96 career NHL games under his belt. "It's at the point where you don't want to ever say never but it's kind of a make-or-break year," Boychuk said. He's not an offensive leader in the NHL and is a bit of a long shot to make the Hurricanes' opening game roster.

Zach Boychuk led the AHL with 36 goals last season as a member of the Charlotte Checkers.

He also tallied 74 points, second-best in the AHL. While the 24-year-old has been a productive AHL player, he has not yet been able to replicate that success at the NHL level as he has just nine goals and 24 points in 96 career games (one and four in 11 games last year). He recently signed a one-year, two-way deal with Carolina and will be given a chance to make the Hurricanes roster this season. It'll be interesting to see if he can take the next step.

Zach Boychuk has re-upped with Carolina on a one-year, two-way contract.

He will receive $600,000 at the NHL level or $200,000 in the AHL. Boychuk netted 36 goals and 74 points in 69 games for the Charlotte Checkers last year. However, he chipped in just one goal and three assists in 11 contests with the Hurricanes.

Zach Boychuk has been called up by Carolina on an emergency basis.

The Hurricanes have some injuries to a few players up front, so Boychuk could see his first NHL action since Jan. 10. He has a goal and three assists in nine outings with Carolina this season. Boychuk has been great in the AHL this year with 32 goals and 67 points in 62 matches.
