Justin Faulk extended his point streak to three games.
Faulk kept the run going by registering an assist Wednesday night. He's up to three goals and 11 points in 36 contests this season. That's still a discouraging total after he surpassed the 30-point milestone in each of his previous four campaigns, but perhaps we're seeing him turn a corner offensively.

Justin Faulk scored a pair of even-strength goals, including the game-winning tally, in Saturday's 4-2 victory against the Sabres.

Faulk was a handful for the Sabres, and he entered the game with just one goal and eight points through his first 34 outings. He now has two goals and three points over the past two outings. Perhaps this performance will finally jump-start his offense, as he has proven to be a valuable rearguard for his goals and assists in the past.

With his assist against the Predators Thursday night, Justin Faulk became the third Hurricane defenseman in franchise history to record 200 career points.

Faulk is not having a very good season (eight points in 34 games) but 200 points is a nice milestone for a blueline to reach. He also becomes just the second rearguard from the 2010 NHL draft class to reach that mark. Cam Fowler of the Ducks is the other.

Justin Faulk has been limited to a goal and seven points in 33 games this season.

By contrast, Faulk has scored at least 15 goals and 37 points in each of his previous three campaigns. Faulk hasn't been happy with his play, but he's trying to keep it in context. "It happens," Faulk said. "I’ve been through it before, although maybe it wasn’t as noticeable because it wasn’t at the beginning of the year. Two years ago I had 12 goals in the first 35 games and finished with 16. I’ve been in situations somewhat like this before, although maybe not as much overall." His statistics were slightly off as he had 14 goals through 36 games in 2015-16 and then just two goals in his last 28 contests, but his point is well taken. He's endured prolonged droughts like this in the past and it's evened out when you look at his season as a whole. Perhaps we'll see the reverse of 2015-16 this time around, where he starts slow and then heats up in the second half. The one encouraging statistic is his 90 SOG in 33 contests.

Justin Faulk had two power play assists on Sunday.

The defenseman has been a power play specialist for a few seasons and Sunday was no exception, getting helpers on goals by Teuvo Teravainen and Sebastian Aho. Faulk has been having a bad time of things entering the game as he had only a goal and three points in 18 contests so perhaps this will get him going.

Justin Faulk scored his first of the season Sunday.

Faulk picked up a pair of assists on October 17 but outside of that, the goal was only his third point of the season in 10 games. He scores in bunches so perhaps this is the start of a streak.

Justin Faulk picked up a pair of assists with a blocked shots, two hits and a pair of minor penalties.

Like most of the Hurricanes who had breakout performances in this one, Faulk was scoreless over the first three games. He has tailed off with 37 points in each of the past two campaigns, a drop since his career-high 49 points back in 2014-15. While his assist numbers have gone down, he has set career highs in goals over each of the past two campaigns. He is one of the more productive rearguards for goals.

Justin Faulk scored a goal in Friday's 3-1 preseason win over the Washington Capitals.

All three of Carolina's goal were scored by a defenseman, as Trevor van Rismedyk and Noah Hanifin also found the back of the net in the victory. Faulk is one of the top goal scoring defensemen in the league. He had 17 goals and 37 points in 75 games last season. He definitely has value in standard fantasy leagues.

Justin Faulk set a new career-high in goals during Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Penguins.

Justin Faulk picked up a couple of helpers in a 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday.

Faulk picked up his first assist on Lee Stempniak's opening goal of the game and then picked up his second on Elias Lindholm's power play marker. Faulk finished the home and home against Detroit with two goals and two assists. He is now up to 35 points in 68 games this season for the Hurricanes. With Jaccob Slavin's emergence in Carolina, Faulk has seen his ice time drop slightly and his point total as well. As always, Faulk continues to bring points to your fantasy lineup but hurts your plus/minus.
