Andrei Loktionov appears as though he will be fine to play Thursday.

His name hasn't come up when the Hurricanes discussed injured players in the morning. He suffered a lower-body injury on Monday, but it may have just been a minor issue. Loktinov has played well since joining the Hurricanes on trade deadline day. He has eight points in 14 games with his new club.
Apr 3 - 1:24 PM

Andrei Loktionov sustained a lower-body injury Monday, which may keep him out of the lineup on Thursday.

He had two assists in 14:54 of ice time against Pittsburgh before he left the game. The Hurricanes called up Chris Terry from the minors on Tuesday as insurance in case Loktionov or Jiri Tlusty can't go against Dallas.

Andrei Loktionov has adapted nicely to life with the Carolina Hurricanes.

New Jersey traded Loktionov to Carolina on March 5. "It's a nice team with nice guys," he said. "It's easy to be here. The guys support me. It makes it easy to just go play hockey and not worry about things." Hurricanes coach Kirk Muller is happy with what Loktionov has brought to the table as a two-way player and also likes the 23-year-old forward's attitude. Loktionov has two goals and four points in 10 games since the trade.

Andrei Loktionov had a goal and an assist in Carolina's 5-4 loss on Tuesday.

The Hurricanes acquired Loktionov from New Jersey on March 5. His playing time has ticked upwards in Carolina, but not to the point where he's worth taking a serious look at in standard leagues. He has two goals and four points in 10 games with Carolina.

Andrei Loktionov turned down a lot of money to play in the NHL.

Loktionov was reportedly being offered as much as $3 million to spend the 2013-14 campaign in the KHL, but he instead inked a one-year, $725,000 contract with the Devils. "My agent talked to them, but I was not ready to go back," Loktionov said. "I am a young guy and this is the best league in the world. It's not about the money for a young guy. I'm happy to be playing here, against the good players." Loktionov will be a restricted free agent this summer, so the Hurricanes aren't likely to face a lot of pressure from their NHL competitors when it comes time to re-sign Loktionov, but they might face competition from the KHL. He has four goals and 12 points in 48 games this season.
Mar 7 - 9:24 AM

Carolina Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford suggested that newly acquired Andrei Loktionov might get power-play ice time.

Carolina got Loktionov from the New Jersey Devils as part of the Tuomo Ruutu trade. Loktionov was averaging just 33 seconds of power-play playing time with New Jersey and has 12 points in 48 games. We wouldn't pick up Loktionov in standard leagues, even if this trade might lead to a mild boost in production.
Mar 6 - 9:27 AM

The Carolina Hurricanes have acquired Andrei Loktionov and a conditional 2017 third-round pick from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for Tuomo Ruutu.

Loktionov has four goals and 12 points in 48 games this season. He didn't have any fantasy value in standard leagues before the trade and we don't expect the move to Carolina to change that.
Mar 5 - 2:04 PM

Andrei Loktionov was naturally disappointed with Russia's finish in the 2014 Winter Games.

"It's pretty sad," Loktionov said. "It happened way too many times the last Olympics. At Vancouver, (Russia finished) seventh and right now it's sixth, seventh. There's a lot of star players and it seems they can't play (with) each other. Too many leaders." Most of the top-tier teams have plenty of star players and guys that are used to being leaders, so that's not a concern unique to the Russians. Unlike Canada and the United States, Russia did split their roster between the NHL and KHL, so they not only had guys not used to playing with each other, but also not even used to playing the same type of game. Of course, even that is not a great excuse because the Finnish team that eliminated them didn't exclusively feature NHL players either.
Feb 21 - 8:43 AM

Andrei Loktionov participated on the Devils' top line on Tuesday.

Loktionov skated alongside Jaromir Jagr and Dainius Zubrus. He only has nine points and 10 penalty minutes in 42 games, so we're not particularly excited by this opportunity. Still, it will be worth keeping an eye on him.
Feb 4 - 4:33 PM

Andrei Loktionov was a healthy scratch on Saturday as the Devils went with seven defensemen in their lineup.

He was joined in the press box by Cam Janssens. Loktionov has sat out the last two games. He has only three goals and eight points in 38 games this season so he should not be on your fantasy radar at this time.
Jan 12 - 8:40 AM

Andrei Loktionov had a goal and an assist in the Devils' 4-3 shootout loss.

Loktionov now has three goals and four assists in 27 games this season. He has no fantasy value in standard leagues.

Andrei Loktionov will take Jacob Josefson's spot in the New Jersey Devils' lineup against the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday.

Loktionov was a healthy scratch on Friday. Otherwise, he's played in four games for the Devils, collecting one assist. Josefson was unable to register a point or shot on goal in his single game of action for New Jersey.

Andrei Loktionov was a healthy scratch Friday for the first time this season.

The 23-year-old forward has an assist and is a minus-one in four games this season.

Andrei Loktionov missed practice Sunday with a lower body injury.

Coach Peter DeBoer hoped that Loktionov would be back at practice on Monday. He said that Loktionov tweaked something in his lower body. Expect Loktionov to be ready for the opener on October 3. He had 12 points in 28 games last season. Look for a 15 goal, 30-35 point season from the Russian this season.
