Justin Faulk had two assists Saturday in a 6-3 loss to Minnesota.

Faulk sure likes to play on Saturday as he had three assists last week. The all-star defenseman has 10 goals and 34 points this season. His minus-16 rating hurts you in fantasy hockey but he is playing for a poor Carolina squad.
Feb 15 - 5:28 AM

Justin Faulk had three assists and was a plus-two on Saturday.

The Hurricanes lone all-star last month tied his career best in points on Saturday as he now has 32, the same as last year with over a third of the season still left to play. Faulk has been a workhorse on the Hurricanes blueline this season and at the age of 22, his future looks bright.
Feb 8 - 8:17 AM

Justin Faulk scored a goal in Carolina's 3-2 shootout loss to St. Louis on Friday.

Faulk has been a surprise contributor offensively for the Hurricanes this season. The 22-year-old now has 10 goals and 29 points in 48 games in 2014-15. Faulk averages over 24:00 per game, but his defensive game still needs some work. Only nine defensemen have more goals than Faulk so far this season. Ryan Murphy also chipped in a goal in Friday's loss. The Hurricanes have just one regulation loss in their last eight games (5-1-2).
Jan 30 - 10:16 PM

Justin Faulk scored a goal and added an assist for the Hurricanes in a 4-2 win over Tampa Bay Tuesday night.

The All-Star defenseman has enjoyed a breakout season and continued his recent run of hot play with his second multi-point effort in his last three games. Eric Staal matched Faulk's line with a goal and an assist of his own while Jiri Tlusty and Nathan Gerbe added tallies in the win.
Jan 27 - 11:42 PM

Justin Faulk recorded two points in the Hurricanes’ 3-2 win over the Senators on Saturday night.

Faulk still has his warts on the defensive end and carries a minus-15 rating, but other than that he offers a lot of upside from the blue line. Faulk’s goal-assist night gives him eight goals and 26 points this season. He also had six shots on goal and a strong plus-three rating. Nathan Gerbe scored the game winner, and he also had an assist. Brad Malone picked up the other marker.
Jan 17 - 10:37 PM

Justin Faulk had a minus-3 rating in Friday's 3-0 loss to Vancouver.

The Canucks' scored three goals in the second period, and Faulk was somehow on the ice for each one of them. The 22-year-old will be Carolina's lone representative at the 2015 NHL All-Star game which is taking place in Columbus later this month. Faulk has seven goals, 24 points and a minus-18 rating this season.
Jan 16 - 11:34 PM

Defenseman Justin Faulk was named to the All-Star team on Saturday.

Faulk will be the Hurricanes lone representative at the game which will be played in Columbus on January 25. Faulk has seven goals and 24 points this season but his plus/minus leaves a lot to be desired as he is a minus-15 in 2014-15.
Jan 11 - 7:33 AM

Justin Faulk had a goal and an assist in a 3-2 loss to Nashville on Tuesday.

Faulk was also minus-three, bringing him down to minus-17 this season. If the season ended today, that would go down as the worst single-season plus/minus rating of Faulk's young career. On a more positive note, the 22-year-old defenseman also has seven goals and 23 points in 40 contests.
Jan 7 - 8:47 AM

Justin Faulk scored and added an assist in the Canes' 4-1 win over Toronto on Thursday night.

Justin Faulk scored the Hurricanes lone goal for the second straight game as Carolina lost 2-1 for the third time in their past four games.

The Canes have just one goal in each of their past four games, which makes it quite hard to win with such measly offense. Faulk has been a bright spot though, as the 22-year-old has 17 points in 28 games in his fourth NHL season.
Thu, Dec 11, 2014 11:56:00 PM

Mon, Dec 8, 2014 10:14:00 PM

Justin Faulk's two point effort on Saturday gave him 14 points in the month of November.

It's too bad that he had only one point in the month of October or the hockey world would be raving about his season. He has three goals and 15 points this season with 65 shots on net. He is worth picking up in pools if available.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 07:15:00 AM

Justin Faulk notched a power-play goal in the Hurricanes’ 3-2 loss against the Penguins on Saturday night.

Faulk is an ultra-talented blueliner who is breaking out this season, to the effect he’s a mainstay in fantasy leagues as well. The defenseman has three goals and 15 points in 23 games this season. Further, he has 65 shots on goal, too, including two Saturday. Elias Lindholm also scored for Carolina.
Sat, Nov 29, 2014 10:09:00 PM
