The Carolina Hurricanes look to keep rolling at home with some hot line changes. Here are the three players that should be on your fantasy squad.
The Carolina Hurricanes got a much needed win at home this past weekend against the Chicago Blackhawks. The Canes found a lot of success coming from the guys that started the night as the second line group having 4 total points, and 10+ fantasy points across goals, assists and PPPs.
We have been waiting, rather desperately, for Sebastian Aho to become more involved in the offensive scheme. Well, our off-sheet favorite is back!
Coach Rod Brind’Amour made some last minute adjustments to some of the lines with the Forwards that paid major dividends in this last game against the Chicago Blackhawks. The line in particular that will help your fantasy team the most this game is going to be these three that started the night as the second line.
It should be noted this line did not last the whole three periods together as Brind’Amour made more coaching changes mid game. Here is the three guys you need to start on fantasy this week.
We all knew the time would come. It was only a matter of time before Aho scored a goal with a goalie in the net. Then come Saturday he racked up 2 assist, and it is safe to say “He’s Back!” Part of this should be contributed to the coaching changes putting Aho with Andrei Svechnikov. Through the past two games these two have accounted for over 10 fantasy points.
It is clear to see that Aho is a bit more comfortable in his play since the trip out west. Whether it was the line changes or his first non-empty net goal, he is playing better. No longer is the super star obviously trying too hard to score. Now it just looks like its coming naturally. This type of play will only increase so lets make sure we have him starting on fantasy for tonight.
Better known as Mr. Point Scorer, is a must have. Svechnikov has been producing for the Hurricanes even before this weekends line change. A dominate threat from the outside of the umbrella, Svechnikov has been finding ways to get the biscuit in the basket. While most of these points have come from assists, we saw on Saturday that he is also a scoring threat that is only trending up.
Starting Svechnikov is a must. Even if the Hurricanes are not playing that night, there is still a chance this man gets you some fantasy points, that’s how good he is.

Is a very heavy sleeper that has carried a lot of the workload through the Hurricanes first 11 games. In the first five games alone, Teravainen assisted on just about every power play goal. While the power play threat trailed off a bit on the west coast, its back! With an effective power play, expect Teravainen to be involved.
These players might be hard to come by but if any of them are still FA, picking them up on the waiver wire is a must. Each of these young men have helped fantasy owners, but to have all three of them on your squad would be almost 5 fantasy points guaranteed on a night where the Hurricanes play.

Who are you starting tonight on your fantasy team?
