  • 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 NHL.com.

    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.

  • Hurricanes' Max Pacioretty: Out Saturday

    Pacioretty (lower body) won't play Saturday and is doubtful to return Sunday, per Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site.

    Pacioretty won't play Saturday against Pittsburgh and will likely miss a second game Sunday against Vancouver. According to head coach Rod Brind'Amour, Pacioretty's injury doesn't seem to be overly serious, which would set him up to return Thursday against Minnesota.

  • Hurricanes' Max Pacioretty: Not practicing Saturday

    Pacioretty (lower body) is not at practice Saturday, according to Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site.

    Pacioretty left Thursday's game versus Columbus in the first period and did not return. He is doubtful to play Saturday against Pittsburgh. Pacioretty has played only four games this season, as he missed the first 38 games while recovering from Achilles tendon surgery in August. Pacioretty has three goals in four games this season.

  • Hurricanes' Max Pacioretty: Suffers lower-body injury

    Pacioretty left Thursday's game with a lower-body injury and won't return.

    Pacioretty, who logged 3:02 of ice time Thursday, was playing in just his fourth game since recovering from an Achilles injury. If there's a silver lining, it's that Pacioretty's new injury isn't related to his old one. Going into Thursday's action, he had three goals in three contests this season.

  • Hurricanes' Max Pacioretty: Scores in back-to-back games

    Pacioretty scored a goal on five shots in the Hurricanes' 5-3 loss to New Jersey on Tuesday.

    Pacioretty scored the second Hurricane goal of the game, flipping the puck off Yegor Sharangovich and into the net. This performance gives Pacioretty goals in back-to-back games and three goals in three games on the season. He should continue to be a major scoring threat with a huge role in a talented Hurricanes offense.

  • Hurricanes' Max Pacioretty: Scores first two as a Hurricane

    Pacioretty scored two goals on two shots in the Hurricanes' 4-3 shootout loss to the Blue Jackets on Saturday.

    In his second game back from an Achilles injury, Pacioretty scored his first two goals as a member of the Hurricanes, with his second goal coming on the power play. Pacioretty was close to a point-per-game player over the previous three seasons, so he's expected to contribute significantly once he shakes off the rust. He's already skating in a top-six role and on the top power-play unit.

  • Hurricanes' Max Pacioretty: Records six shots in return

    Pacioretty (Achilles) had a minus-1 rating in Carolina's 5-3 loss to Nashville on Thursday.

    Pacioretty was playing in his first game of the 2022-23 campaign because of the injury. He had six shots and two hits in 16:06 of ice time. Although the 34-year-old was held off the scoresheet, it was encouraging to see him record that many shots and play in a significant role after such a lengthy absence.

  • Hurricanes' Max Pacioretty: Set to make season debut

    Pacioretty (Achilles) is expected to play Thursday versus Nashville.

    Pacioretty missed Carolina's first 38 games of the season because of the injury. He's expected to be an important part of the Hurricanes' forward core, but it might take some time for him to get going after missing so much of the campaign. The 34-year-old had 19 goals and 37 points in 39 games with Vegas in 2021-22. Rather than play on a specific line in his season debut, Hurricanes coach Rod Brind'Amour suggested Pacioretty might "bounce around" Thursday, per Cory Lavalette of the North State Journal.

  • Hurricanes' Max Pacioretty: Activated off non-roster list

    Pacioretty (Achilles) was activated off the non-roster list Wednesday.

    Although Pacioretty may not make his Hurricanes debut Thursday versus Nashville, it looks like he should return to game action sooner rather than later. The 34-year-old vet racked up 19 goals and 37 points through 39 games with Vegas last season.

  • Hurricanes' Max Pacioretty: Will not play Friday

    Pacioretty (Achilles) will not play Friday against Florida, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    Pacioretty skated in a regular jersey at practice Tuesday and coach Rod Brind'Amour said after practice Thursday that while the winger will not play Friday, it's possible he'll make his season debut within the next 10 contests. Pacioretty tore his Achilles tendon in August and the original prognosis was a six-month recovery timetable, so he's still well ahead of his initially expected mid-February return date.

  • Hurricanes' Max Pacioretty: Skates in standard jersey

    According to Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site, Pacioretty (Achilles) skated in a normal jersey during Tuesday's practice, indicating he's been cleared for contact.

    When asked about Pacioretty skating in a normal jersey during Tuesday's morning practice, coach Rod Brind'Amour said "It's him saying that he wants a little extra work. It's a good sign. We don't want to rush anything, but every day I think he's getting closer," Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports. Brind'Amour's comments seem to suggest Pacioretty likely still isn't particularly close to making his Hurricanes debut, but it nonetheless sounds like the 34-year-old winger may be ahead of schedule in his recovery, as he was initially expected to be sidelined until at least mid-February after underoing Achilles surgery in mid-August.

  • Hurricanes' Max Pacioretty: Not close to playing

    When asked about Pacioretty's (Achilles) status, coach Rod Brind'Amour said the 34-year-old winger is "certainly not close to playing, but this is the first step to at least being optimistic that it's around the corner, Cory Lavalette of the North State Journal reports.

    Pacioretty was on the ice in a non-contact jersey for Wednesday's practice, which is a great step in the right direction for his recovery, but the 34-year-old winger is still likely a few months away from making his Hurricanes debut, as he was given a six-month recovery timetable after undegoing Achilles surgery in early August. Pacioretty racked up 19 goals and 37 points through 39 games with Vegas last season.
