Victor Rask registered an assist in the Devils' 3-1 win against New Jersey on Friday.

Rask has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four games. That gives him 12 goals and 27 points in 63 contests this season. Although he's done well lately, he's down from his typical offensive pace and will likely finish below the 40-point mark for the first time since 2014-2015.
Mar 3 - 5:30 AM

Victor Rask recorded his 20th point of 2017-18 Thursday night.

Rask's point streak also reached three games with his assist in Carolina's 2-0 win against Montreal. His 20 points in 49 games though is below what we would have hoped for out of him after he finished 2016-17 with 45 points.
Feb 2 - 5:03 AM

Victor Rask scored the game-winning goal in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Ottawa Senators.

Rask's power play goal at the 11:32 mark of the third period gave the Hurricanes a 2-1 lead, and they never looked back. The 'Canes forward now has three points in his last two games and five points in his last six games. He has 12 goals and 19 points in 48 games this season. Sebastian Aho also found the back of the net for the Hurricanes.

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.
Jan 2 - 10:58 PM

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.

Rask was a healthy scratch for two games before he got back in the lineup on Friday night. He had four shots and a plus-3 rating versus the Leafs and he looked good again on Sunday. Rask has seven points through 20 appearances this campaign.

Wed, Nov 22, 2017 07:25:00 PM

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

Josh Jooris will take Rask's place in the lineup. Rask, who has only three goals and five points in 18 games this season, logged 11:50 of ice time on Saturday versus Buffalo.

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.
