There were a few guys that broke out on Friday that we should expect to see make some noise today. Let’s take a look at who you should be starting in fantasy today!
Carolina Hurricanes Fantasy Picks
Necas has been outstanding all year but has been on a tear as of late. 4 points in the last 5 games and 2 points last game. Necas has knotted 31 points on the season, quite the accomplishment for a rookie.
Necas actually has 15 goals on the year, which is 3rd on the team in goals scored. He is now only nine points from passing the injured Dougie Hamilton to 4th on the team in scoring.
Yea, those are some super quite stats, and after a multi point game, it’s time to show Necas some love in fantasy.
It is not a shock to say that Fleury came into this season as a question mark. He was a part of a revolving door on the 3rd blue line with the canes for the first half of the season. He has shown promise here and there but it’s hard to really get going playing every few games.
Since Dougie’s injury Fleury has stepped up in a big way. He has show tremendous promise and improvement. He also has tallied 5 points since having to start every game, including 3 in the last 4 games.
It’s time to start respecting the young blood and start Haydn in fantasy tonight. He is going to keep proving himself every night, it’s a good one to start.
Teravainen is one of the most special guys on this Canes team. He can play with anyone but he loves to feed Aho and Svechnikov. In the last 8 games Teuvo has been responsible for 10 points.
In those last 8 games the Carolina Hurricanes have gone 5-3 and in two of those games Teuvo didn’t knot a single point. When Teuvo is going, the Canes will win. Also Teuvo has been shooting the puck more having 3 goals in the last 8 games, something he isn’t known for.
Teuvo is stepping up in a huge way and seems to be notching points every night. This is a great player for you to start in fantasy.
