Andrei Svechnikov News
Carolina Hurricanes winger Andrei Svechnikov (illness) is on track to return to the lineup Thursday versus the Islanders. The 23-year-old was forced to skip the previous game with an illness, and he reportedly isn't at 100 percent yet, but Hurricanes head coach Brind'Amour believes Svechnikov will give it a go on Thursday. The Russian forward has been on a good scoring run lately, amassing five points (one goal, four assists) in four games. He's totaled nine points (one goal, eight assists) for the entire campaign with 12 appearances.
Carolina Hurricanes winger Andrei Svechnikov (illness) missed Tuesday's contest against the Philadelphia Flyers. Svechnikov appears to have caught the bug that is spreading around the league and was out of action last night. Brendan Lemieux replaced him in the lineup. Svechnikov has nine points (one goal, eight assists) in 12 games this season. He has mostly played on the second line and first powerplay unit, but has moved up and down the lineup as is the norm with Rod Brind'Amour coaching. His peripherals and decent point totals make him a must-start in fantasy when he is healthy.
Carolina Hurricanes forward Andrei Svechnikov (knee) is set to make his season debut Friday against the San Jose Sharks. Svechnikov missed the Hurricanes' first eight games and the end of last season after suffering a knee injury that required surgery. While the 23-year-old may be eased into the lineup, he should start on the first powerplay unit and will see most of his time in the top six before long. Svech put up 55 points in 64 games before his injury last season and should surpass those numbers barring injury, making him a must-start fantasy option.
Carolina Hurricanes winger Andrei Svechnikov (knee) was a full participant in Monday's practice. The 23-year-old has missed the start of the season while recovering from an ACL tear, but this is a major step on his part towards returning to action. However, it will still take some more time until Svechnikov is ready for his season debut, and he has already been ruled out for Tuesday's clash with the Lightning. Svechnikov was Carolina's fourth-best scorer last term with 55 points (23 goals, 32 assists) in 63 games, and he also adds muscle to the lineup, having averaged close to two hits per game for his career.
