Carolina Hurricanes Roster Moves 10/26

The Carolina Hurricanes tonight will take on the Seattle Kraken in the first half of a back-to-back as they will face the San Jose Sharks tomorrow night. The Hurricanes are looking to snap their three-game losing streak as they went 2-4-0 on their six-game road trip. Today, they got some good news as they have assigned Pyotr Kochetkov to the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL, meaning that the Hurricanes are expected to get Frederik Andersen back to start in one of the two games over the next two days; expect Antti Raanta to get one night and Andersen to have the other. Andersen had been out since November 17th, when he left the game against the Sharks due to taking a puck to the mask, which led Carolina to call up Kochetkov from Syracuse, where he was playing due to the Hurricanes not having an AHL affiliate.

Roster Moves By The Numbers

Frederik Andersen

Andersen has struggled out of the gate this season, as he made three starts before the injury, and he went 2-0-0 with a .855 save percentage and a 4.15 GAA. Those numbers are vastly different from the season he had last year when he appeared in 34 games and went 21-11-1 with a 2.48 GAA and a .903 save percentage.

Pyotr Kochetkov

Kochetkov started the season in the AHL, where he made one start, going 1-0-0 with a 2.79 GAA and a .912 save percentage. He was called up after the Andersen injury, and he would appear in three games, going 0-3-0 and posting a .836 save percentage and a 4.33 GAA. Last season, Kochetkov appeared in 24 games and went 12-7-5 with a 2.44 GAA and a .909 save percentage, as well as having four shutouts.

The Boston Bruins hired General Manager Don Sweeney on May 20, 2015. Sweeney has signed 216 players, drafted 54, and made 42 trades since that time. Bruins fans would probably like to forget about some of the draft picks (especially the 1st round in 2015) and some of the trades (Kirill Kaprizov for a 5th-round […]

Stanley Cup Finals Preview: Edmonton Oilers vs. Florida Panthers Game 3 | 06/13/2024

That certainly wasn’t a polite Game 2. I think every neutral fan should agree that officiating was questionable on both ends of the ice in Game 2, and I’m being nice when I word it that way. Leon Draisaitl throws a hit on Aleksandar Barkov that actually resulted in a cross-check to the face. Barkov […]
