Elias Lindholm found the back of the net in Carolina's 5-3 win over Edmonton Tuesday night.

It was Lindholm's first goal of the 2017-18 campaign. He also has two assists in four contests. He scored 11 goals and a career-high 45 points in 72 contests last season.

Justin Williams chipped in with a pair of assists and a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's 5-3 victory in Edmonton.

Williams has yet to light the lamp over his four contests, but he has chipped in with four helpers. He averaged 50 points per season over his past two campaigns in Washington, and he has at least 41 points in six of his past seven seasons. He is off to a great start in his second tour of duty in Raleigh.
Oct 18 - 1:04 AM

Justin Faulk picked up a pair of assists with a blocked shots, two hits and a pair of minor penalties.

Like most of the Hurricanes who had breakout performances in this one, Faulk was scoreless over the first three games. He has tailed off with 37 points in each of the past two campaigns, a drop since his career-high 49 points back in 2014-15. While his assist numbers have gone down, he has set career highs in goals over each of the past two campaigns. He is one of the more productive rearguards for goals.
Oct 18 - 1:00 AM

Jaccob Slavin posted a goal with an assist, a plus-3 rating, five blocked shots and a hit in Tuesday's 5-3 win in Edmonton.

Slavin finally rewarded bench boss Bill Peters, who had been giving Slavin approximately two minutes more ice time than he was seeing last season. The Denver native was all over the place in this victory. Not only was he valuable on the offensive end, but he was one of the rare stars on defense for a Carolina team which allowed 51 shots.
Oct 18 - 12:57 AM

Teuvo Teravainen posted a pair of goals with a plus-1 rating and two hits in Tuesday's 5-3 victory.

Teravainen scored his two goals in the first 4:53 of the game, setting the tone for the remainder of the game. One of his markers came on the power play. It was quite the change from his first three games, as he has 10 shots on goal, but was scoreless with a minus-1 rating. He bagged 15 goals with 42 points through 81 outings in 2016-17, so he is worth fantasy consideration in plenty of pools.
Oct 18 - 12:55 AM

Jordan Staal posted a goal with three assists and a plus-2 rating while adding a pair of hits in Tuesday's 5-3 victory on the road in Edmonton.

Staal's fantasy owners have been wringing their hands, as he had been scoreless across his first three contests. However, now he is rolling at a point-per-game clip. It's amazing how one game can dramatically change things. He'll post his usual 45-50 points while seeing plenty of time on the man advantage, so be patient with him exactly for nights just like this.
Oct 18 - 12:46 AM

Martin Necas was scoreless with no shots on goal in 6:54 of ice time in his NHL debut on Tuesday in Edmonton.

Necas, the 12th overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft didn't do much in his brief debut. It's uncertain if he'll return to the press box or continue to get a look for the young Hurricanes, but he has no fantasy appeal outside of deeper dynasty pools at this juncture.
Oct 18 - 12:43 AM

Cam Ward allowed three goals on 51 shots in Tuesday's 5-3 victory in Edmonton.

It was Ward's first appearance in the crease this season, as Scott Darling has taken over as the starter in Raleigh. However, this was vintage Ward, as he was peppered all evening due to lackluster defense, but he held down the high-octane Edmonton offense and provided his team a solid road victory. He proved he still has plenty left in the tank for when he is called upon.
Oct 18 - 12:41 AM

Janne Kuokkanen will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Edmonton Oilers.

Kuokkanen was a second round pick in the 2016 draft. The 19-year-old has suited up in three games this season, but he still hasn't picked up a point. Klas Dahlbeck and Brock McGinn will also watch the game from the press box.

Martin Necas will make his NHL debut in Tuesday's game against the Edmonton Oilers.

Necas made the roster out of training camp after being the 12th pick in last June's NHL Entry Draft. He's watched the first three games of the season from the press box but that will change tonight. He'll play on a line with Elias Lindholm and Sebastian Aho.
Oct 17 - 8:54 PM

Cam Ward will get the start in Tuesday's game against the Edmonton Oilers.

Ward has been serving as the backup goalie to Scott Darling this season. He finished last season with a 26-22-12 record, a 2.69 goals-against-average and a .905 save percentage. He isn't worth owning in any fantasy leagues.
