Hurricanes' Stefan Noesen: Suffers Grade 3 shoulder separation
Noesen suffered a Grade 3 shoulder separation in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to Florida in Game 4, Cory Lavalette of the North State Journal reports.
Grade 3 is the most serious of shoulder separations as it is a complete tear of both the AC (acromioclavicular) and CC (coracoclavicular) ligaments. Noesen had 13 goals and 36 points in 78 regular-season games, including seven tallies and eight helpers on the power play. Noesen chipped in with four goals and four assists in 15 playoff games as he saw plenty of action on the top line. No timetable was given for Noesen's return.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Andrei Svechnikov: Expecting to skate in July
Svechnikov (knee) is expecting to resume skating in July, Cory Lavalette of the North State Journal reports.
Svechnikov suffered the injury that required surgery on March 11, ending his season. The talented Russian will return home for a month before returning to Raleigh to resume his rehab. Svechnikov had 23 goals and 55 points in 64 regular-season games. Look for Svechnikov to return in time for the start of training camp in September and regain his role as a top-line winger....

Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Can't prevent sweep
Andersen turned aside 20 of 24 shots in a 4-3 loss to Florida in Game 4 on Wednesday.
Carolina lost Andersen's previous two starts despite him stopping 73 of 77 shots over that span. In contrast, the Hurricanes were able to provide him with decent offensive support Wednesday, but that didn't change the result. Andersen was beaten twice in the first period and surrendered a goal in each of the second and third frames. With Carolina eliminated from contention, the goaltender has finished the playoffs with a 5-3 record, 1.83 GAA and .927 save percentage in nine appearances.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Brady Skjei: Collects two assists in Game 4
Skjei notched two assists in a 4-3 loss to Florida in Game 4 on Wednesday.
Skjei was held off the scoresheet in his previous seven outings. Carolina has been eliminated from the playoffs, and Skjei didn't do much offensively with a goal and four points in 15 postseason appearances this year. The defenseman was a solid contributor in the regular season, recording 18 goals and 38 points in 81 outings.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Teuvo Teravainen: Tallies goal, but Hurricanes lose
Teravainen supplied a goal in Carolina's 4-3 loss to Florida in Game 4 on Wednesday.
The defeat eliminated the Hurricanes from the playoffs. Teravainen wasn't a significant factor in Carolina's postseason run, with Wednesday's marker being his first goal and first point of the 2023 playoffs. That's largely because Teravainen suffered a broken hand April 19 and underwent surgery, so he was able to participate in just six postseason contests. During the 2022-23 regular season, the 28-year-old had 12 goals and 37 points in 68 outings.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Jesper Fast: Scores sixth goal of playoffs
Fast tallied a goal in a 4-3 loss to Florida in Game 4 on Wednesday.
Fast provided at least a point in all five contests of the Hurricanes' second-round series, but he didn't score over the first three contests of the Eastern Conference Finals. Although Carolina was eliminated from the playoffs with its loss Wednesday, Fast at least gave the Hurricanes a chance when he scored late in the third period to tie the contest at 3-3. He finished the playoffs with six goals and nine points in 15 outings.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Jordan Martinook: Picks up two helpers in loss
Martinook recorded two assists in the Hurricanes' 4-3 loss to Florida in Game 4 on Wednesday.
Martinook was held off the scoresheet for the first three contests of the Eastern Conference Finals. Florida completed its sweep of Carolina on Wednesday, so Martinook will finish the playoffs with three goals and 12 points in 15 outings. It was a very good showing for the 30-year-old, especially compared to his regular-season totals of 13 goals and 34 points in 82 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Paul Stastny: Ends eight-game scoring slump
Stastny provided a goal in Carolina's 4-3 loss to Florida in Game 4 on Wednesday.
Stastny found the back of the net midway through the first period to reduce the Panthers' lead to 2-1. The marker snapped his eight-game scoring drought. Carolina was eliminated from the playoffs with this loss, and Stastny ended the postseason with four goals and four points in 15 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Jaccob Slavin: Says he's okay
Slavin (upper body) said he was okay after leaving Wednesday's Game 4 versus the Panthers in the first period, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Slavin's early exit likely didn't help the Hurricanes as they took a 4-3 loss, but he was available to talk to the media in the locker room following the loss. While his status might have been in doubt had the Hurricanes forced a Game 5, it's unlikely the injury will have any impact on his availability for 2023-24. He had six points over 15 playoff contests.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Stefan Noesen: Leaves Game 4 with injury
Noesen (upper body) won't finish Wednesday's Game 4 versus the Panthers.
Noesen initially left the game in the first period, then he returned for the second before he was ruled out for good in the third. He's picked up eight points through 14 playoff contests while seeing top-six minutes. It's unclear if he'll be able to play Friday if the Hurricanes force a Game 5.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Jaccob Slavin: Suffers upper-body injury
Slavin won't return to Wednesday's Game 4 versus the Panthers after suffering an upper-body injury in the first period.
Slavin was hit hard by Sam Bennett early in the contest. The hit left Slavin wobbly on his skates, and it's certainly not a good sign that he was ruled out for the game before the first intermission. Given the nature of the hit, it seems doubtful Slavin would be able to play Friday if the Hurricanes are able to force a Game 5.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Looking to avoid elimination
Andersen will start on the road in Wednesday's Game 4 versus the Panthers, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.
Andersen has allowed just four goals on 77 shots in two appearances during the Eastern Conference Finals, but he's ended up with a loss in both of those games. He'll get the chance to help the Hurricanes avoid elimination Wednesday, as the Panthers are looking to sweep the series.... See More ... See Less
Hurricanes' Frederik Andersen: Allows just one goal, but loses
Andersen stopped 16 of 17 shots in a 1-0 loss to Florida in Game 3 on Monday.
The only goal Andersen allowed was scored during a Panthers power play. Between him and Antti Raanta, who started in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Carolina's goaltenders have surrendered just six goals on 103 shots in this series, but the Hurricanes' forwards have gone cold. Carolina now finds itself down 3-0 with Game 4 set to be played Wednesday. It wouldn't be surprising if Andersen started in the must-win contest, especially because Hurricanes coach Rod Brind'Amour's probable motivation for using Raanta in Game 2 was to rest Andersen after Thursday's quadruple-overtime contest. Fatigue shouldn't be a concern after the relatively light workload during Monday's outing. Andersen has a strong track record too, going 5-2 with a 1.58 GAA and a .937 save percentage in eight playoff appearances this year.... See More ... See Less
