  • Capitals' Max Pacioretty: Timeline unclear

    Pacioretty (Achilles) is not expected to be available for the start of the 2023-24 season, Tom Gulitti of reports.

    Pacioretty has suffered two torn Achilles tendons since the summer of 2022. Washington head coach Spencer Carbery told on Aug. 22 that he doesn't have an exact timetable for Pacioretty's return, but the 34-year-old winger may end up missing the first month or two of the 2023-24 campaign. Pacioretty was limited to just five games last season with Carolina, scoring three goals and posting 16 shots on net. He signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Capitals in July.

  • Capitals' Max Pacioretty: Signs with Washington

    Pacioretty (Achilles) signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Capitals on Saturday.

    Pacioretty is coming off an injury-plagued 2022 campaign, scoring three goals in just five games, capped by a torn Achilles in January. Still, the 34-year-old winger is just two seasons removed from a 51-point campaign, making it an intriguing upside signing for the Caps. If healthy, Pacioretty should be firmly in the mix for a somewhat important role for his new team.

  • Hurricanes' Max Pacioretty: Shifts to LTIR

    Pacioretty (Achilles) was transferred to long-term injured reserve Saturday, per CapFriendly.

    Pacioretty isn't expected back before the end of the regular season, though the Hurricanes haven't specified a return timeline for the winger. He tore his Achilles for a second time in less than a year during a game Jan. 19 versus the Wild. His placement on LTIR opens up some cap flexibility for the Hurricanes in advance of the trade deadline, which may allow them to add a top-six-caliber forward to replace Pacioretty.

  • Hurricanes' Max Pacioretty: Suffers torn Achilles

    Pacioretty tore his Achilles against Minnesota on Thursday.

    The team hasn't announced a timeline for Pacioretty's recovery but it doesn't seem likely that he'll play again this season. Assuming he doesn't return, the veteran winger appeared in just five games this season after returning from Achilles surgery in August. Pacioretty has been limited to 92 regular season games since the start of the 2020-21 campaign.

  • Hurricanes' Max Pacioretty: Placed on injured reserve list

    Pacioretty (lower body) was put on the injured reserve list Friday.

    Pacioretty appeared to sustain the injury late in Thursday's 5-2 win against Minnesota. He's scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday, so more information might be disclosed after that. Pacioretty has three goals and no assists in five contests this season.

  • Hurricanes' Max Pacioretty: Set to undergo MRI

    Pacioretty (lower body) will undergo an MRI on Monday, Luke DeCock of the Raleigh News and Observer reports.

    Pacioretty's MRI was evidently pushed to Monday to "allow things to settle down," which would seem to suggest he's likely dealing with some swelling and could be facing an extended absence. At this point it isn't clear if this latest injury is related to the Achilles injury Pacioretty suffered that required surgery in August. Check back for an update on Pacioretty, who's picked up three goals through five games this season, prior to Wednesday's matchup with Dallas.

  • Hurricanes' Max Pacioretty: Exits in final minute

    Pacioretty sustained what appeared to be a non-contact lower-body injury in the final minute of Thursday's game versus the Wild, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Given how late the injury occurred, it's unlikely there will be an update on Pacioretty's status following the contest. The winger missed nearly three months while recovering from an Achilles injury, and he grabbed at the same leg that he hurt previously. There should be an update on the winger prior to Saturday's game versus the Islanders.

  • Hurricanes' Max Pacioretty: Set to return against Wild

    Pacioretty (lower body) is slated to play versus Minnesota on Thursday, per

    Pacioretty has played in just four games this season due to various injuries, registering three goals on 13 shots in his four contests. If the veteran winger can stay healthy, he should be capable of offering top-end fantasy upside, especially if he links back up with the No. 1 power-play unit as expected.

  • Hurricanes' Max Pacioretty: Ruled out Sunday

    Pacioretty won't play in Sunday's contest with the Canucks, per Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer.

    Pacioretty will miss a second contest after suffering a lower-body injury Thursday against Columbus. The 34-year-old winger has three goals in four games this year after missing the first three months of the season following Achilles surgery in the offseason. Pacioretty's next chance to play will be Thursday against the Wild.
