The 23-year-old now has 15 points through 17 games, and is on-pace to steadily improve on his production output for the second straight season. Rask exceeded the point-per-game pace during his major-junior seasons, and appears to have found a consistent scoring touch in the NHL.

The goal put an end to Rask's six-game goalless drought. The Hurricanes found themselves down 3-0 in the second period, but they scored back-to-back goals to cut the gap to 3-2. Unfortunately for the 'Canes, that's as close as they would come to tying the game. Rask has five goals and six assists in 13 games this season. Teuvo Teravainen also found the back of the net for Carolina.

"I’m just excited for the future and I think we’ve got something really good going on here… It feels like home for me, so it’s very nice to come back here." The 23-year-old will look to build on his 23-goal and 48-point season from last year.
Sep 3 - 2:23 PM

Victor Rask believes the Carolina Hurricanes are in a position to make the playoffs next season.

"I think we’ve added some good players in trades and made some good draft picks, too," Rask said. "As for me, I just want to keep improving each year. That’s the most important thing. I want to be one of those guys they put out there if we’re down a goal, or up a goal and trying to keep the lead, a two-way center who plays well and can help the team. I’m not going to change too much. I want to be a leader on the ice." Rask was expressing that optimism after signing a six-year, $24 million contract. The Hurricanes have added Lee Stempniak, Viktor Stalberg, Bryan Bickell, and Teuvo Teravainen this summer in the pursuit of their first playoff berth since 2009.
Jul 13 - 9:27 AM

The Carolina Hurricanes have signed Victor Rask to a six-year, $24 million contract.

Rask was a restricted free agent after completing his entry-level deal. He had 21 goals and 48 points in 80 contests in 2015-16. There's been quite a few of these long-term deals to young players this summer and the theme of them is consistent: The length of the contract compared to the resume of the player makes it a risky bet for the team, but the upside of the player also makes the annual cap hit look like a potential steal. After all, if the 23-year-old Rask continues to develop than that $4 million annual cap hit will easily start to look cheap relative to what other top-six forwards get. However, Rask still has plenty to prove despite his newfound security.
Jul 12 - 10:11 AM

Victor Rask received a qualifying offer from Carolina on Monday.

The two sides will probably continue to negotiate on a longer term deal. Carolina also tendered qualifying offers to Ryan Murphy, Patrick Brown, Brody Sutter, Brendan Woods, Keegan Lowe and Dennis Robertson.
