Sebastian Aho's goal on the power play Saturday was the Hurricanes first in eight games.

The Hurricanes are obviously struggling with the man-advantage but Aho could be a fixture on the power play in the years to come. The 19-year-old rookie has 12 goals and 25 points this season in 46 games but gets lost in the race for the Calder with so many outstanding first year players. Don't forget about him next season when drafting.

Sebastian Aho picked up his 12th goal of his rookie campaign during Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.

Aho now has 25 points through 46 games so far this season. He won't win the Rookie of the Year award this season, but Hurricanes fans have to be over the moon about his talent and development.

Justin Faulk just keeps scoring goals.

Faulk picked up his ninth tally of the season, giving him 21 points in 39 games this season. With one more goal he'll reach the double-digit goal plateau, which is mighty impressive.

Michael Leighton put forth a valiant effort through Saturday's 3-2 loss to Columbus.

Leighton turned away 17 of 20 shots, including all three asked of him on penalty kill. He's now 2-2 with 12 goals against with Carolina this season.

Teuvo Teravainen was made a surprise scratched against Columbus on Saturday.

Through 45 games with the Hurricanes this season the 22-year-old has posted 10 goals and 14 points along with a 12.7% shooting mark. With just a bit more time he'll easily surpass his career highs of 13 goals and 35 points set just a season ago.

It'll be Michael Leighton who ends Cam Ward's 21-game starting streak on Saturday against Columbus.

Leighton comes in with a 2-1 record and nine goals against through three games with the Hurricanes already this season. Considering how sensational Columbus has been this season, you may wish to look for a more favorable matchup.
Jan 21 - 4:34 PM

Michael Leighton might start Saturday against Columbus, according to coach Bill Peters.

However, he said that a decision has not been made yet. Cam Ward has started 21 consecutive games and he surrendered seven goals on 41 shots to Pittsburgh Friday night.
Jan 21 - 8:45 AM

Teuvo Teravainen was limited to just 8:56 of ice time in Friday's 7-1 loss to Pittsburgh.

He had a minus-3 rating in the contest and coach Bill Peters didn't like the effort Teravainen was making defensively. He had one goal and two assists in two contests before Friday's match to give him 24 points this season.
Jan 21 - 8:42 AM

Jeff Skinner was benched in Friday's 7-1 loss to Pittsburgh.

He was whistled for an embellishment penalty and for unsportsmanlike conduct during the second period. Skinner was on the pine in the third period. "You don't want to hurt the team," he said. "It's tough sitting, watching, especially when guys are out there battling." He finished the contest with just 10:22 of ice time.
Jan 21 - 8:38 AM

Cam Ward allowed seven goals on 41 shots in Friday's ugly 7-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Hurricanes were down just 1-0 after the first period, but the Penguins scored four goals in the second period to bury Carolina. Ward has an 18-14-6 record with a 2.54 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage this season. He's given up four goals or more in three straight games and three goals or more in five of his last six.
Jan 20 - 10:24 PM

Viktor Stalberg scored a shorthanded goal in Friday's 7-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Stalberg's goal was rather meaningless, as he cut Pittsburgh's lead to 6-1 in the third period. The goal puts an end to his 20-game goalless drought. Stalberg is up to eight goals and 11 points in 44 games this season.
Jan 20 - 10:07 PM

Ty Rattie, Ryan Murphy and Klas Dahlbeck will be scratched against the Penguins on Friday night.

Rattie has not suited up for the Hurricanes since Jan. 8th now, perhaps suggesting coach Bill Peters hasn't quite figured out how to best utilize the talented youngster. He has a point in three games and nearly 14 minutes of ice per night on average with Carolina thus far.
Jan 20 - 6:17 PM

Alex Nedeljkovic has been returned to AHL Charlotte.

Nedeljkovic was briefly serving as the Hurricanes' backup so that Michael Leighton could get in a bit of work in the minors. Leighton is now back with the Hurricanes.
