Elias Lindholm scores two goals in a 3-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night.

Derek Ryan will suit up in Saturday's game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Ryan missed two games because of an upper-body injury, but he'll be back after getting the bye week to rest up. He has nine goals and 23 points in 43 games this season.
Jan 20 - 6:45 PM

Sebastian Aho won't suit up in Saturday's game against the Red Wings.

Aho was diagnosed with a concussion and a lower-body injury on Sunday. It's the first time he misses a game in his young NHL career. He's out indefinitely for now.

Cam Ward will get the start in Saturday's game against the Red Wings.

Ward comes into tonight's game having dropped each of his last three decisions. He has an 11-5-2 record with a 2.85 goals-against-average and a .904 save percentage this season.

The Carolina Hurricanes have announced that Roland McKeown has been recalled from the AHL.

McKeown played two games with the Hurricanes earlier in the year, picking up two assists but averaged less than 10 minutes a game. He has some upside but should not be owned in any fantasy formats. The 22-year-old has 13 points in 37 games with the Charlotte Checkers.
Jan 20 - 5:57 PM

Derek Ryan could return to the Hurricanes' lineup in one of the team's two games this weekend.

Ryan, who sustained an upper-body injury a week ago after being checked into the boards by the Capitals' Tom Wilson and missed last Sunday's 4-1 loss to Calgary, has nine goals and 23 points in 43 games this season. Get ready to activate him if you need him.
Jan 20 - 9:44 AM

Brett Pesce (upper body) might be able to return to the Carolina lineup this weekend.

Pesce, who is recovering from an upper-body injury, could return to action Saturday against Detroit or Sunday against Vegas. For the season, the rearguard has nine assists in 39 games which is about on par with his 20 points in 82 games in 2016-17. Check back with closer to Saturday's 7:00 pm ET puck drop to see if Pesce has dressed for the contest.
Jan 20 - 9:40 AM

Scott Darling may be in the crease for Saturday night's game against Detroit.

Darling lost 4-1 to Calgary last Sunday, but Cam Ward has been defeated in his last three starts and has allowed 11 goals on 77 shots in the process. Ward may get Sunday's start against Vegas, as the Canes play in back-to-back games this weekend. For the season, Darling has a pedestrian 9-12-6 record with a 2.94 GAA and an .895 save percentage.

If you're looking for a player who may take off in the second half of the season, consider Jeff Skinner.

Skinner, who scored 37 goals last season, notched 17 of them in a 21-game period from March 1st to the end of the campaign. The streaky Skinner has only 14 markers this season and has yet to catch fire. Adding Skinner sounds like a good speculation to us.

Elias Lindholm took the place of the injured Sebastian Aho during Friday's practice on the Hurricanes' first line alongside Jordan Staal and Teuvo Teravainen.

Needless to say, this is a wonderful opportunity for Lindholm, who ranks sixth in Canes' scoring with 12 goals and 25 points. If you need a boost in offense, consider adding the 23-year-old Swede to your lineup.
Jan 20 - 9:19 AM

Sebastian Aho has been diagnosed with a concussion and he suffered a lower-body injury on Sunday.

Aho was involved in a collision with Calgary's Mark Giordano in the contest and needed help getting off the ice. Giordano got a match penalty for the hit, but he wasn't given any supplemental discipline. Aho is listed as out indefinitely at this time. The Hurricanes don't play again until Jan. 20 because of their bye week.
Jan 15 - 5:59 PM

Justin Williams picked up 17 penalty minutes Sunday.

Williams came to the defense of teammate Sebastian Aho after he absorbed a hit to the head from Mark Giordano and got two for instigating, five for fighting and a misconduct. The plethora of minutes gives Williams 44 this season and when added to his 27 points, makes him a nice pick in deeper traditional leagues.
Jan 15 - 7:07 AM

There was no update on the injuries to Sebastian Aho (head/knee) after Sunday's game.

Aho was injured in the first minute of the third period when he took a hit to the head from the Flames Mark Giordano as well as a knee-on-knee shot. Aho had to be helped off the ice. "Obviously, there’s some head contact," coach Bill Peters said. "I don’t know there was much intent, to be honest with you. I thought (Giordano’s) arm was tucked in low. But it ended up catching him in the head, so unfortunate." The Hurricanes are off for their five day bye week but it does not look like Aho, who leads the team with 37 points, will be back quickly. Stay tuned.
