Max Pacioretty News
Carolina Hurricanes left wing Max Pacioretty has torn his right Achilles for the second time in less than a year, the team announced on Friday. He was injured Thursday in the final seconds of a matchup against Minnesota, and whilst it was initially announced simply as a lower-body injury, it has now been confirmed that Pacioretty has torn the Achilles tendon on his right foot that required surgery in the offseason. The injury will end Pacioretty's season and he finishes his debut campaign with the Hurricanes after skating in only five games. The 34-year-old notched his only points via three goals.
Carolina Hurricanes left wing Max Pacioretty suffered yet another injury on Thursday against Minnesota and it could be a very bad one this time around. The veteran scorer was back in action after missing two games with a lower-body injury and he was almost done with the night in a 5-2 victory when disaster struck. With 20 seconds to go, Pacioretty suffered a non-contact injury when he was trying to make a play behind Minnesota's goal. He fell down to the ice and put his right leg up in the air. Pacioretty needed assistance to get off the ice and head coach Rod Brind'Amour said after the game that the injury "doesn't look good". The 34-year-old had Achilles surgery on the same leg during the offseason. Pacioretty's absence is set to lift Teuvo Teravainen back to the top line.
Carolina Hurricanes left wing Max Pacioretty (lower body) will return to the lineup Thursday against the Wild. He suffered a lower-body injury on Jan. 12 against Columbus that forced him to sit out a pair of games but the veteran winger is ready to go again. Pacioretty missed the start of the season after having Achilles surgery and has been limited to only four games, in which he has notched three goals. The 34-year-old heads to the top line, which means a demotion to the fourth for Teuvo Teravainen.
Carolina Hurricanes left wing Max Pacioretty (lower body) will miss Saturday's matchup against Pittsburgh and is also doubtful to play Sunday versus Vancouver. He suffered a lower-body injury early into Thursday's game against Columbus and needs some time to heal. Luckily, the injury isn't related to Pacioretty's Achilles problem that forced him to miss the start of the season and it is not believed to be a serious issue. Pacioretty was able to skate in just four games before suffering a fresh injury blow. He picked up three goals with 13 shots and had four hits. Teuvo Teravainen moved to Pacioretty's spot on the first line Saturday.
