Victor Rask scored a goal in a 3-1 win against Washington on Thursday.
Rask's goal proved to be the game-winner. He's found the back of the net 11 times this season with two of those markers being deciding goals. He might be able to best his career-high of 21 goals, but he has just three assists in 2017-18, which has severely limited his use in fantasy leagues. Jan 12 - 6:41 AM

Victor Rask came away with two goals in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals.

Rask took advantage of a terrible pass from John Carlson to open the scoring in the first period and his second goal of the night came on a wrister through traffic to get the Hurricanes to within one goal midway through the second period. Rask is now up to 10 goals and 13 points in 37 games this season. Elias Lindholm and Teuvo Teravainen also scored in the loss.

Victor Rask knocked home his seventh goal of the season in the third period of Monday's 3-2 loss at Anaheim.

The goal with 2:40 left in regulation gave the Ducks fans and fantasy owners of John Gibson some heart palpitations, but the home team was able to hang on for the victory. Rask has had a knack for timely goals on the road trip so far, bagging a power-play mark Saturday in L.A. to spark a comeback, too. In fact, he has scored in each of the past three games, especially endearing himself to DFS players using him as a mid-tier value.

Victor Rask scored a power play goal Saturday.

The goal gives Rask two in his last two games. He has six goals and nine points in 26 games this season, a big drop from last year when he had 16 goals and 45 points in a full campaign. He is a fringe fantasy player at best in deep leagues.

Victor Rask registered one goal and one assist in Carolina's 4-3 shootout win against Nashville on Sunday afternoon.

Victor Rask will be a healthy scratch for the Hurricanes on Sunday against the Islanders.

Victor Rask couldn't build off his strong start to the 2016-17 campaign.

Rask had eight goals and 15 points in his first 17 games in 2016-17. "After that I wasn’t playing very well," Rask said. "I don’t know why but I have to do a better job of that." He scored eight goals and 30 points in the other 65 contests. He's still just 24 years old so there's room for him to grow and become a more consistent player. Keep his upside in mind when evaluating him for 2017-18.

Victor Rask scored the game-winning goal in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

Rask broke a 1-1 tie at the 16:36 mark of the third period. The Hurricanes forward has been on a bit of a roll of late, as he's picked up at least one point in nine of his last 12 contests. Rask has 16 goals and 25 assists in 68 games this season. Derek Ryan and Teuvo Teravainen also found the back of the net for the 'Canes.

Victor Rask scored the first goal of the night for Carolina, but it was not enough as they lost 3-2 to Toronto.

Rask has scored points in back-to-back games for first time since the beginning of the month. Since March 1, he has scored a goal in every other game, making him a difficult player to place-and-hold. This was his 15th goal and 29th point of the season.

Victor Rask is on a four-game point streak.

Rask extended that run with an assist in a 4-3 loss to Tampa Bay on Wednesday. He has 14 goals and 36 points in 60 contests in 2016-17. He'll probably end up finishing around last season's total of 48 points.

Victor Rask picked up an assist Friday.

It was Rask's first point in 14 games as the center, who signed a six-year/$24 million extension in the off-season, was slumping badly. He has 13 goals and 33 points this season and should be looked in pools next year as he has the capability to get 50-plus points.

Victor Rask has not had a goal nor an assist in his last 12 games.

That's a major slump for Rask who inked a six-year/$24 million extension this past summer. He has 13 goals and 32 points in 54 games thus far after getting 48 points last season. The 23-year-old has not been good on the draw as well as he won only three-of-11 Friday. "Whatever line he’s playing on he’s getting dominated on faceoffs a little bit," coach Bill Peters said. "When that happens it means you’re defending and that makes it tough. There are things he can do better, but I would recommend starting with the puck. That makes the game a little easier."

Victor Rask scored a goal in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

The goal put an end to Rask's nine-game goalless streak. Rask found the back of the net with just five seconds remaining in the second period to cut Chicago's lead to 2-1. Unfortunately for the 'Canes, that's as close as they'd come to tying the game. Rask has 11 goals and 17 assists in 39 games this season.

Victor Rask snapped his five-game point drought on Thursday.

Rask recorded an assist in a 4-2 win over St. Louis. He has 10 goals and 27 points in 38 games, which puts him on pace to beat his career-high of 48 points.
