Date: Team: Pos:

Justin Faulk didn't make the lineup Saturday night.

He was questionable to dress after missing Friday's contest against the Penguins after having dressed for 149 straight games.
Feb 13 - 7:33 PM

Brad Malone was the Hurricanes healthy scratch Saturday night.

Malone hasn't dressed in a handful of consecutive games scoring two goals in 37 games played.
Feb 13 - 7:29 PM

Cam Ward will get his fourth straight start Saturday night when the Carolina Hurricanes host the New York Islanders

Ward has posted a 15-11-7 record with a 2.34 goals against average and .918 save percentage.
Feb 13 - 6:46 PM

Justin Faulk (leg) could be back in action Saturday.

Faulk missed Friday's game but has been practicing since being injured Thursday when his leg was caught under Brad Malone against the boards. Faulk had played in 149 straight games before Friday. He has 15 goals and 34 points this season and has been one of the top blueliners in the game fantasy-wise. Faulk also has 100 hits and 55 blocks to add to his value.
Feb 13 - 8:20 AM

Brett Pesce (lower body) was activated from the IL on Friday February 12.

Pesce had four blocked shots and was a plus-one in 19:46 of action. The blueliner has four goals and 12 points in 42 games so his fantasy value is limited at this time.
Feb 13 - 2:26 AM

Cam Ward stopped 25 of 26 shots in Friday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Ward has now suffered back-to-back shootout losses after he allowed just one goal in regulation. The 31-year-old has a 15-11-7 record with a 2.34 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage in 2015-16.
Feb 12 - 10:41 PM

Andrej Nestrasil scored a goal in Friday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Nestrasil tied the game in the third period after Phil Kessel opened the scoring in the second frame. Nestrasil has eight goals and 20 points in 48 games this season. The 24-year-old has picked up at least one point in seven of his last 11 contests. He has no fantasy value going forward.
Feb 12 - 10:36 PM

Brad Malone, Riley Nash, and Michal Jordan will each be scratched from Friday's match with Pittsburgh.

Of the three only Malone has accumulated a modicum of fantasy value. He's posted 52 PIMs and 84 hits in 37 games thus far. Not too shabby in the right pool.
Feb 12 - 6:54 PM

Justin Faulk will not play Friday night against Pittsburgh due to an undisclosed injury.

Faulk is just one goal shy of passing his career high of 15 tallies, and he has 34 points this season to go along with his 100 hits and 55 blocks. Quite the stat rap for the young veteran.
Feb 12 - 6:46 PM

Cam Ward will face Pittsburgh on Friday night.

Ward comes in with a 15-11-6 record with a .908 save percentage and a 2.38 GAA through 34 games this season. The save percentage is dismal to say the least, especially when you consider he rocks a .918 even strength save percentage. Considering how hot Sidney Crosby is, you may wish to avoid this matchup.
Feb 12 - 6:05 PM

Justin Faulk (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision on Friday.

Faulk crashed into the boards during Thursday's practice and had to get off the ice for treatment. He then skated on Friday, but didn't join the Hurricanes for their practice.
Feb 12 - 12:17 PM

Ron Hainsey has rejoined the Hurricanes for Friday's morning skate.

Hainsey was absent from Thursday's practice. Given that he's skating with the team again after his brief absence, he'll probably be available for Friday's contest.
Feb 12 - 11:01 AM

Kris Versteeg (illness) was back on the ice Thursday.

That will probably lead to Versteeg playing on Friday, but nothing is set in stone yet. He has 10 goals and 31 points in 53 contests in 2015-16.
Feb 11 - 11:42 AM

Brett Pesce (lower body) took part in Tuesday's practice.

Pesce has missed three straight games with a lower-body injury. He might be able to return for Friday's game.
Feb 10 - 8:50 AM

Kris Versteeg didn't practice Tuesday because of an illness.

The Hurricanes don't play until Friday when they host Pittsburgh, so he has plenty of time to recover. Consider him day-to-day.
Feb 9 - 1:27 PM
