Player News - Hurricanes

Date: Team: Pos:

Chris Terry has been sent to the minors on a conditioning stint.

Terry has been playing regularly, but he'll probably get more ice time in the minors. He has four goals and seven points in 17 contests in 2014-15.

Brett Bellemore (lower body) is on the injured reserve list.

Bellemore sustained the ailment during Saturday's contest. Hurricanes coach Bill Peters suggested that he'll likely miss seven-to-10 games, so it's not surprising to see Carolina put him on the injured reserve list.
Nov 25 - 10:23 AM

Michal Jordan has been called up by the Carolina Hurricanes.

Jordan has two goals and seven points in 15 AHL contests in 2014-15. He played in five games with Carolina in 2013 and is searching for his first NHL point.
Nov 25 - 10:21 AM

Brett Bellemore (lower body) is projected to miss seven-to-10 days, according to coach Bill Peters.

He was injured in Saturday's contest versus Colorado. In 13 games this season, Bellemore has three assists and 38 hits.
Nov 24 - 1:05 PM

Brett Bellemore was injured in the first period Saturday and did not return.

There was no word on the injury but he was ridden into the boards by the Avalanche's Cody McLeod. He played only 3:07 minutes and was a plus-one. Bellemore has three assists in 13 games with a plus-one rating and 12 penalty minutes. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Andrej Nestrasil scored in his Hurricanes debut, but his team came up short in a 4-3 loss to the Avalanche on Saturday night.

Nestrasil was just claimed off waivers, and he potted his first NHL marker with his new club. While he should become a solid NHL regular, he doesn’t really offer a ton of offensive upside at this point in his career. He has three points. Nathan Gerbe and John-Michael Liles got the other goals. Riley Nash contributed with two assists.
Nov 22 - 11:49 PM

Cam Ward faltered late for the Hurricanes in their 4-3 loss to the Avalanche on Saturday night.

Ward gave up one goal on seven first-period shots, then gave up three more on 28 shots the rest of the way. Carolina controlled the puck on five-on-five, but Ward let them down. He has a 2.71 goals-against average and .903 save percentage this season. Ward’s given up 11 goals over his last three games.

Andrej Nestrasil will make his Hurricanes debut against Colorado on Saturday night.

Nestrasil was claimed off of waivers from Detroit on Thursday and will line up on the right wing with Nathan Gerbe and Riley Nash on Carolina's second line. The young Czech has two points in 13 games this season.

Jay Harrison, Chris Terry and Zach Boychuk are expected to be healthy scratches Saturday night against Colorado.

Forwards Terry and Boychuk aren't terribly surprising given that they've contributed just a dozen points in 34 combined games. However Jay Harrison's absense is because he was thought to have recovered from his lower body injury. As far as we know, they're all healthy scratches.

Cam Ward will get his 14th start of the season for Carolina on Saturday night against Los Angeles.

Ward and Anton Khudobin were expected to split goaltending duties this season, but Ward has clearly reclaimed the net as he's outplayed Khudobin 2:1. However, he still owns a 2.61 GAA and a .905 save percentage. Start at your own risk.
Nov 22 - 8:18 PM

Alexander Semin is expected to suit up against Colorado on Saturday night.

Semin has only five points, all assists, in his 14 games this season, and was a healthy scratch on Thursday against Los Angeles. However he's still expected to line up to the right of Victor Rask and Jeff Skinner on the Canes' third line.
Nov 22 - 5:54 PM

Andrej Sekera recorded an assist in a 3-2 loss versus Los Angeles Thursday night.

Sekera has no goals and eight assists in 18 games this season. That's a step down from his 44-point showing in 2013-14, but didn't expect Sekera to match last season's total to begin with.
Nov 21 - 10:42 AM

Eric Staal found the back of the net in a 3-2 loss to Los Angeles.

Staal has recorded at least a point in three of his last four contests. He has six goals and 12 points in 14 games this season. If he can stay healthy for the rest of the campaign, then he still has a shot of reaching the 70-point mark this season.
Nov 21 - 10:39 AM

Cam Ward stopped 36 of 39 shots in Carolina's 3-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

Ward was busier than his counterpart in goal Jonathan Quick. Ward did come up with some key saves in the game but it wasn't enough to pull off the upset. The 30-year-old has lost three of his last four starts but that isn't all his fault. Carolina will struggle to string wins together this season which makes Ward a poor play in fantasy leagues. Ward is 6-6-1 with a 2.61 goals-against-average and a .905 save percentage.
Nov 21 - 1:25 AM

Jeff Skinner scored a goal and added an assist in Carolina's 3-2 loss to Los Angeles on Thursday night.

Skinner tied the game one in the first period, and his assist on Eric Staal's second period goal tied the game again. The 22-year-old hasn't produced as much as many would have thought this season. He now has five goals and nine points in 15 games this season. Skinner has now scored in back-to-back games for the first time this season.
