Elias Lindholm's points streak has reached 10 games.

Lindholm picked up an assist on Saturday and now has 10 goals and 42 points in 63 games this season, his best year in four NHL seasons. The winger was drafted fifth overall in 2013 and it seems he has been in the league so long that it's hard to believe that he is only 22. Do not forget about him next season.

Jeff Skinner's 30th goal of the season helped Carolina to a 3-1 win over New Jersey Saturday.

Skinner has been red-hot of late with seven goals in his last five games to get to the magical 30 goal mark. It's the third time in seven NHL seasons that Skinner has hit the mark and his 54 points has been bettered only in his rookie season when he had 63. He should be started in most pools with some depth.

Sebastian Aho scored twice in a 3-1 win against New Jersey Saturday night.

Aho scored his 22nd and 23rd goals of the season with the opening and closing goals of the night against the Devils. With this, he extended his point streak to six games. Aho also pulled a minor penalty for hooking during the third period before sinking his second puck.

Eddie Lack gave up only one goal on 27 shots Saturday night as the Hurricanes beat the Devils 3-1.

Lack has done an admirable job as a backup. In his current four-game winning streak, he has recorded a worst save percentage of.931. He lost a 3-1 contest to the Avalanche March 7, but even then he had a respectable percentage of .917 and that came on the heels of a .962 win over the Coyotes. Lack is a good option whenever he steps in front of the net.

Carolina will likely start Eddie Lack on Saturday.

Lack was the first goaltender off the ice following the morning skate. He's been doing well lately, allowing two or fewer goals in each of his last five games.

Derek Ryan is the Carolina Hurricanes' nominee for the 2017 Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy.

The award honors a player who exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. Ryan took the long road to the NHL. He spent parts of four seasons in the WHL, followed by four-year stint with the University of Alberta. After that he spent four seasons in Austria and Sweden before finally getting a chance within the Carolina Hurricanes organization for the 2015-16 campaign. He spent most of that season in the minors, but did make his NHL debut at the age of 29. This season he continued his unconventional climb, scoring 11 goals and 24 points in 57 games with Carolina.

Jeff Skinner has six goals and eight points in his last five games.

That's brought Skinner up to 29 goals and 53 points in 69 contests this season. This is the third time in four seasons that Skinner has reached the 50-point milestone. If he can score one more goal then this will also be the third time in his career that he's reached the 30-goal mark.

Sebastian Aho registered an assist in Carolina's 4-1 win over Montreal.

That extends Aho's point streak to five games. He has 21 goals and 44 points in 72 games this season. He currently holds seventh place in the rookie scoring race.
Mar 24 - 9:20 AM

Elias Lindholm extended his career-high point streak to nine games.

Lindholm scored a goal in the Hurricanes' 4-1 win over Montreal Thursday night. He's up to 10 goals and 41 points in 62 games.
Mar 24 - 9:18 AM

Eddie Lack stopped 21 of 22 shots in Carolina's 4-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens.

Lack gave up the first goal of the game less than seven minutes into the first period, but he was perfect the rest of the way. The Hurricanes goalie has now won three straight games. Lack owns a 6-5-2 record with a 2.60 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage. Carolina is five points out of the final Wild Card spot in the East.
Mar 23 - 10:58 PM

Lee Stempniak scored two goals in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens.

He finally put his 10-game goalless drought to bed. Stempniak's goals gave Carolina 2-1 and 3-1 leads in the second and third period and they never looked back. Stempniak has 14 goals and 22 assists in 72 games this season. The 'Canes are still a long-shot to make the playoffs, but this 6-1-3 stretch has put them five points back of the final Wild Card spot.
Mar 23 - 10:52 PM

Eddie Lack will probably be in net against Montreal on Thursday.

Lack has been much better over his last five starts where he's posted a 3-1-1 record with a .921 save percentage and just 10 goals against.
Mar 23 - 4:30 PM

Janne Kuokkanen signed a three-year, entry-level contract with Carolina.

He'll earn $700,000 in 2017-18, $750,000 in 2018-19, and $800,000 in 2019-20 if he plays at the NHL level. He'll also receive a $227,500 in a signing bonus. Drafted 43rd overall in 2016, the 18-year-old has posted 26 goals and 62 points in 60 games with OHL London this season.
