Lucas Wallmark

2018-2019 Season: 28 points (10 goals 18 assists)

2019-2020 Season projection: 21 points (7 Goals 14 Assists)

Wallmark played fairly well in his first full season with the Hurricanes. He had a strong face-off percentage at 50.9, and had 82 hits and 33 takeaways in 2018-19. However, in the first lineup projections, Wallmark was put on the fourth line which could hurt his point production.
