The Carolina Hurricanes have acquired Micheal Ferland from the Calgary Flames on Saturday afternoon.
Ferland is part of a major deal that saw Dougie Hamilton and prospect Adam Fox head to Carolina for Noah Hanifin and Elias Lindholm. The 26-year-old is coming off a career season in 2017-18, as he put up 21 goals and 20 assists in 77 games. Ferland is more of a physical, complimentary player that can chip in offensively. It would be surprising to see him score as many goals this season as he did last year. He has one year remaining on his contract that comes with a cap hit of $1.75 million. Ferland will be an unrestricted free agent next summer. Jun 23 - 2:00 PM

While Micheal Ferland set new career-highs in 2017-18, the expectation is that he can do better next season.

Ferland took a big step forward this season with 21 goals and 41 points in 77 games. Going into the campaign, he had a career-high of 25 points. "A year ago, I told him I thought he could score 20-some goals. I think he can score 30 now," said Flames head coach Glen Gulutzan said. "He has to find that level of consistency within himself too, to be more consistent and recognize he’s a pretty good player in this league. I think we got 50 really good games out of Ferly. I still think there’s room for him to play more." The belief that Ferland can do better if he was consistent isn't hard to understand. Ferland had 20 goals in his first 50 games this season and just one in his final 27 contests. So had he not gone through a drought in the final stretch of the season, a 30-goal showing in 2017-18 wouldn't have been out of the range of possibilities.

Micheal Ferland scored a goal and picked up an assist in a 7-4 loss to the San Jose Sharks.

Ferland continues his very impressive season, totalling 21 goals and 39 points in 67 games this season. As long as he continues to play with Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan, the 25-year-old forward will be worth a spot on your fantasy roster. Mark Jankowski, Troy Brouwer and Johnny Gaudreau also scored in the win.

Micheal Ferland had an assist in a 1-0 win against Edmonton Tuesday night.

Ferland has recorded a point in three of his last four games. He has 20 goals and 37 points in 66 contests in 2017-18. That's well above his previous career-high of 25 points. The 25-year-old has been improving steadily over the last few years, though he might not have much upside left.

Micheal Ferland will return to action from an upper-body injury on Monday night.

Ferland will be back on the top line, with Sean Monahan and Johnny Gaudreau, after he missed four games due to injury. He has 20 goals and 34 points in 61 games this season.
Mar 5 - 4:38 PM

The Calgary Flames are hoping that Micheal Ferland (upper body) is able to play on Monday.

Ferland has missed the last four games and that has taken its toll on the Flames top line as Johnny Gaudreau is pointless in his last four and fellow linemate Sean Monahan has a goal. Both are minus-four and miss their linemate. "If I’m a betting man right now, he’s going to be in on Monday," coach Gary Gulutzan said. "He’ll be on the trip. Everything’s a go as long as there are no setbacks." Ferland has 20 goals and 34 points in 61 games this season. Get him back in your lineup.
