Justin Faulk wants to get into the playoffs for the first time in his career.

"I haven't made the playoffs," he said. "It's tough to go home knowing you didn't make it, that you fell short. I mean, there's only one team that wins each year but you've got to make the playoffs. It's been three years for me, and I know it's been five years for a few guys here. With most of us coming back, we all have that same goal to get there and see what you can do." Carolina hasn't qualified for the postseason since losing in the Eastern Conference Finals to Pittsburgh in 2009. Faulk inked a six-year extension with the Canes last season and the young blueliner will continue to skate on the team's top defense pairing.

Look for Justin Faulk to take on a bigger role for the Carolina Hurricanes next season.

Faulk just turned 22 and was a valued member of the American Olympic squad this past season, so he should be expected to provide leadership in 2014-15 for the Hurricanes. "I think I've been put into a position where I need to step up and be more of a leader, whether it's more vocal or coming to the rink ready to work hard every day and show it that way," Faulk said. He had the best offensive season of his young career with five goals and 32 points in 76 games and look for that to increase next season if he remains healthy.
