Canes' Tlusty (Upper Body) Out Thursday

News: Jiri Tlusty (upper body) will not play Thursday against the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Jiri Tlusty appeared on the cusp of returning to action after he took part in pregame warmups Saturday, but he ended up being scratched for that game against the Flyers and hasn't been seen on the ice since. He'll sit out for the third straight game Thursday.

Canes' Tlusty Out Tuesday

News: Jiri Tlusty (undisclosed) didn't travel with the team to Montreal for Tuesday's game, Chip Alexander of the Charlotte News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Jiri Tlusty remained off the ice at Monday's practice due to the injury, which was enough for the Hurricanes to rule him out for a second straight contest. Justin Shugg has since been recalled from AHL Charlotte to help the Hurricanes fill out a lineup spot while Tlusty remains unavailable.

Canes Rule Tlusty Out Saturday

News: Though he took part in pregame warmups, Jiri Tlusty (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Flyers.
Analysis: Jiri Tlusty didn't seem to be visibly limited while taking part in line rushes with his mates, but evidently the Hurricanes weren't ready to sign off on his return to the lineup. The fact that he was so close to playing suggests a multi-game absence might not necessarily be in store, but it looks like Jay Harrison will replace him in the lineup for at least one game, as the Hurricanes go with seven defensemen and 11 forwards.

Canes' Tlusty Looks Good To Go Saturday

News: Jiri Tlusty (undisclosed) was on the ice for pregame warmups and looks ready to go for Saturday's game against the Flyers.
Analysis: After he was held out of practice Friday, the Hurricanes labeled Jiri Tlusty as a game-time decision for Saturday, but he seems to have erased any doubt about his availability by taking part in the pregame proceedings. Barring an unforeseen late scratch, Tlusty is slated to skate on the top line next to Eric Staal and Zach Boychuk.

Canes' Tlusty Questionable For Saturday

News: Jiri Tlusty (undisclosed) is questionable to play Saturday against the Flyers.
Analysis: Jiri Tlusty must have obtained an injury in Thursday's loss to the Lightning, as he wasn't present for Friday's practice. It doesn't look like it was simply for maintenance purposes either, as coach Bill Peters acknowledged after the session that the team would go with 11 forwards and seven defensemen for Saturday's lineup if Tlusty can't go. Because the game has a 1:00 p.m. ET start time, the Hurricanes likely won't hold a morning skate, which might prevent Tlusty's status from being available until pregame warmups.

Jiri Tlusty, LW, CAR Canes' Tlusty Riding Cold Streak

Jiri Tlusty

Canes' Tlusty Riding Cold Streak

News: Jiri Tlusty was held off the scoresheet for the fifth consecutive game Monday against the Devils. However, he did see 20:14 in ice time - including over three minutes on the power play - playing on the second line with Victor Rask and rookie Andrej Nestrasil.
Analysis: Even though Jiri Tlusty is no longer skating with Eric Staal on the Canes' top line, he is still seeing three minutes more in ice time per game compared to last season (18:10 vs. 15:10). Despite his current cold streak, he is still on pace for roughly 40 points this season, which would represent a career high for him. Tlusty's point production usually comes in bunches, so if you're in a deep league and can stomach the extended power outages, keep him rolling. Your patience should be rewarded by the end of the season.

Tlusty Paces Canes To Win Over Pens

News: Jiri Tlusty recorded two goals and an assist during Friday's 4-2 win over the Penguins.
Analysis: Jiri Tlusty came into the game stone cold, with just two points in his previous 12 games, but found some jump to his game and paced his team to surprise win over the heavily favored Pens. Fantasy owners will want to see more of this type of effort on a regular basis from Tlusty, but it's a step in the right direction.

Offense Sputtering For Canes' Tlusty

News: Jiri Tlusty was held off the scoreboard for the third straight game during Wednesday's 1-0 loss to the Panthers. He recorded just a single shot on goal and saw just 15:53 worth of ice time.
Analysis: Jiri Tlusty's season got off to a great start with a hat trick in his second game back on Oct. 11, but he's been mostly quiet since then, with just six points in his last 19 games. For now, Tlusty continues to spend most of his time on the top line with Eric Staal and Alexander Semin, however we wouldn't be surprised if he was shifted to a lower line at some point, or sat out as a healthy scratch. Overall, his value as a reliable fantasy option is in rapid decline - avoid using him if you can.

Carolina's Tlusty Bags Seventh Goal

News: Jiri Tlusty tallied the Hurricanes' lone goal in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Bruins.
Analysis: Jiri Tlusty put Carolina on the board first when he tipped a Justin Faulk shot attempt past goalie Tuukka Rask for his seventh marker of the season. It was just the winger's second point in the month of November, spanning a total of eight games.

Carolina's Tlusty Still Set To Play Friday

News: Coach Bill Peters said after Friday's morning skate that Jiri Tlusty (head) remains on track to play against the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Jiri Tlusty did depart early during the team's morning skate, but only for final testing as part of the concussion protocol. Assuming he comes through the testing without incident, just as he had the previous couple of days, he'll likely be on track to see his usual 19 minutes of action on the Canes' top line.

Hurricanes' Tlusty Expects To Play Friday

News: Jiri Tlusty (head) expects to play Friday against the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Jiri Tlusty wore a non-contact sweater at Thursday's practice, but he was able to make it through the session without setback. A final call on Tlusty's status will be made following Friday's morning skate since he still remains under the concussion protocol, but it looks like the injury that knocked him out of Tuesday's game will not cost him any additional action.

Carolina's Tlusty Reports Improvement

News: Jiri Tlusty (head) underwent concussion tests Tuesday and is expected to receive additional testing Thursday.
Analysis: While Jiri Tlusty isn't in the clear just yet, he indicated he felt better Wednesday, a day after he was the recipient of a vicious check to the head from the Blue Jackets' Jack Johnson. The Hurricanes will take every precaution to keep Tlusty off the ice until he's passed all the tests conducted by the team's medical staff, putting his status for Friday's rematch with Columbus in question for the moment.

Carolina's Tlusty Brushes Off Injury Concern

News: Jiri Tlusty, who left Tuesday's game versus the Blue Jackets after taking a hit to the head, told coach Bill Peters he "felt fine" after the contest.
Analysis: Though Jiri Tlusty's words would seem to offer encouragement that he avoided a serious injury, the Hurricanes probably aren't ruling out a concussion just yet, as symptoms can often take several hours or even a day to surface. For now, he should be viewed as questionable for Friday's rematch with the Blue Jackets in Carolina.

Carolina's Tlusty Leaves With Injury

News: Jiri Tlusty left Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets with an undisclosed injury and will not return.
Analysis: Jiri Tlusty took a blindside hit to the head from the Jackets' Jack Johnson and immediately headed to the locker room. It's possible the forward sustained a concussion as a result of the blow, but the team probably won't provide an official diagnosis on his condition until Wednesday.

Hurricanes' Tlusty Scores Again In Win

News: Jiri Tlusty scored for the second straight game in Saturday's win over Arizona.
Analysis: Considering it took the Hurricanes nine games to win this season, it's quite impressive Jiri Tlusty has managed six goals in his last eight games. With Eric Staal back from injury, Tlusty should continue to find the back of the net skating on the top line.

Canes' Tlusty Nets Goal In Loss To Canucks

News: Jiri Tlusty scored the Hurricanes' only goal in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Canucks.
Analysis: Jiri Tlusty has been one of the brighter lights on an otherwise dismal Hurricanes team this year. He now leads his team with seven points in eight games, and is well on pace to surpass the 30 points he posted last season. Furthermore, with linemate Eric Staal (upper body) now back in the lineup, Tlusty should benefit from an even stronger supporting cast. Enjoy the ride while it lasts.

Carolina's Tlusty Scores Goal Tuesday

News: Jiri Tlusty was responsible for the Hurricanes' only goal in Tuesday's loss to the Jets.
Analysis: Aside from his Oct. 11 hat trick against the Islanders, Jiri Tlusty's offense has mostly been nonexistent, and the same could be said for just about all of his mates. His five points are tied for tops on the team with Chris Terry, despite the fact that the duo has combined for only 13 shots on goal in Carolina's five games.

Jiri Tlusty

Canes' Tlusty Nets Trick In Loss

News: Jiri Tlusty picked up a hat trick in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: It was a #onemanshow for sure -- two of those goals came on the power play and the third was a solo, unassisted effort. Could a career high in the making? Maybe -- he has four points in two games and while that pace will slow, it's clear he has his eyes set on bettering his 38-point best. Get on board -- he's a low-cost complementary scorer for your squad.

Canes' Tlusty Scores In Loss

News: Jiri Tlusty added a goal and an assist in Carolina's 5-2 loss to the Capitals on Sunday.
Analysis: After last season's disappointing campaign, Jiri Tlusty is looking to turn things around this year and could start the season on the team's first line. He could have good fantasy value, but if he gets pushed down to the second line and last year's struggles resurface, he could be a risky pick.

Canes' Tlusty Set To Reprise First Line Role

News: Jiri Tlusty skated with Eric Staal and Alexander Semin at practice Monday, and this is expected to be the Canes' first line on opening night, the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: At the start of training camp, there was some speculation whether new coach Bill Peters would insert Jeff Skinner in Jiri Tlusty's spot on the top line. However, at this point it appears Tlusty will at least open the season as the team's No. 1 left winger, which is good news considering the disappointing 30-point campaign he stumbled through last season. Having said that, Peters will likely not hesitate to switch things up if Tlusty struggles out of the gate, so he remains a somewhat risky fantasy selection in our minds.

Tlusty Re-Signs With Hurricanes

News: Jiri Tlusty has signed a one-year, $2.95 million deal to stay with the Hurricanes, the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: The 26-year-old winger notched 23 goals and 38 points in 48 games for the Hurricanes during the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season, but his production dipped last year to just 16 goals and 30 points in 68 games. Now that he has re-upped, Jiri Tlusty will have a chance to engineer a bounce-back campaign with Carolina.

Carolina's Tlusty Hot To Close Out Season

News: Jiri Tlusty picked up two assists in Sunday's season finale against the Flyers.
Analysis: After missing four games toward the tail end of the season with a lower-body injury, Jiri Tlusty returned for the final three contests, notching at least a point in each one. The strong finish allowed him to reach 30 points on the season for the third time in his career.

Tlusty On Board For Canes

News: Jiri Tlusty scord what proved to be game-winning goal in Friday's 2-1 win over Detroit.
Analysis: Jiri Tlusty has been one of the season's more disappointing players after grabbing 23 goals in 48 games last season. He's missed some time this year due to injury, but his numbers this year have been underwhelming.

'Canes Confirm Tlusty To Play Thursday

News: Jiri Tlusty (lower body) will play Thursday against the Capitals.
Analysis: Jiri Tlusty's participation in practice Wednesday seemed to suggest he'd be available Thursday, and coach Kirk Muller confirmed as much after morning skate. He missed the last four games with the injury.

Canes' Tlusty Expected Back Thursday

News: Jiri Tlusty (upper body) is expected to be in the lineup Thursday against the Capitals, Michael Smith of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: The winger has 14 goals and 12 assists through 65 games this season, but hasn't been able to suit up since getting hurt March 31 against the Senators.
