Another offseason addition, Ryan Dzingel has delivered early on. With two goals and five assists, the slick-skating winger is on pace for an 18 goal, 46 assist season. His two goals came in a 6-3 win over the Florida Panthers, including the game-winner on the power play.
Yeah, you’d better believe I’m putting Joel Edmundson here. We’ll get the ugly out of the way: his turnover against the Panthers was cringe-worthy, no two ways about it. Aside from that, Edmundson is tied for the team lead in blocked shots (19) while adding 18 hits.

He endeared himself to the fans when he squared off against Josh Manson after the Anaheim defender knocked Erik Haula out of the game with a hard hit. His physicality and defensive acumen has been a perfect fit on the Carolina blueline.
After much fanfare, Martin Necas finally appears to be in Raleigh for good. The touted Czech forward didn’t make much of an impact during the preseason, registering a single assist in three games.
Once the regular season started, we began to see the promise. Necas notched a power-play goal in the season opener and netted the game-winner against the Los Angeles Kings. The young playmaker is on course for an 18 goal, 46 point season if he maintains his early pace.
