News: Justin Faulk contributed a goal and an assist in Thursday's win over the Stars.
Analysis: Justin Faulk potted one of three Carolina goals that came within a five-minute span in the second period, providing the Hurricanes with an insurmountable lead. The goal would go down as a game-winner for Faulk, his first of the season.

Carolina's Faulk Pots Goal, Finishes Plus-3

News: Justin Faulk scored his fourth goal of the season and finished with a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's win over the Penguins.
Analysis: Since inking a six-year, $29 million extension last week, Justin Faulk has two points in his last five games. The young blueliner hasn't yet had the breakout offensive season many projected for him, but the Hurricanes are banking on that materializing once he reaches full maturity during the contract.

Hurricanes Ink Faulk To Six-Year, $29M Deal

News: The Hurricanes signed Justin Faulk to a six-year, $29 million contract extension Monday.
Analysis: Justin Faulk hasn't exactly taken the leap some might have expected this season, but with 24 points in 65 games and a roster spot on the U.S. team during the 2014 Winter Olympics, he's still viewed as one of the best young defensemen in the NHL. The 22-year-old will be counted on to improve his scoring totals in the years to come in order to justify the Hurricanes' large financial commitment.

Canes' Faulk Returns From Illness

News: Justin Faulk (illness) returned to the lineup Friday against the Blackhawks following a one-game absence. He played his usual 21+ minutes and registered three shots on goal.
Analysis: Sounds like whatever kept him sidelined was not an overly serious ailment. Feel free to get him back in your lineups.

Canes' Faulk Out With Illness

News: Justin Faulk missed Tuesday's game against Columbus with an unspecified illness, the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: At first glance, this does not appear to be related to the upper-body injury that sidelined Justin Faulk for five games earlier this month, however the team has not released any details yet.  Either way, consider him day-to-day for now and put him on your fantasy bench in favor of a healthier option.

Canes' Faulk (Upper Body) Back In Lineup

News: Justin Faulk (upper body) was back in the lineup for Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Bruins after missing the previous five games. He saw 20:36 of ice time and 27 shifts, but failed to register a point.
Analysis: Justin Faulk was back on the Canes' first defensive pairing with Andrej Sekera, but surprisingly did not see time on the first power-play unit as he normally does. Regardless, he should be fine to activate for fantasy purposes going forward.

Hurricanes' Faulk A Possibility For Saturday

News: Justin Faulk (upper body) could possibly be back in the lineup Saturday vs. the Bruins, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Justin Faulk was apparently close to returning to action Thursday vs. the Sabres, but he ultimately didn't take part in pregame warmups after joining the team for their morning session. Faulk has missed the last five games with the upper-body ailment.

Canes' Faulk Out Again Thursday

News: Justin Faulk (upper body) did not take the ice for pregame warmups and is thus not expected to return for Thursday's game against the Sabres.
Analysis: Justin Faulk is reportedly nearing a return, but will miss a fifth consecutive game Thursday. He may be an option for the Hurricanes as soon as Saturday's game against the Bruins.

Carolina's Faulk Could Play Thursday

News: Justin Faulk (upper body) practiced Wednesday and could be back in the lineup Thursday vs. the Sabres, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Justin Faulk was on the ice again for pregame warmups and could be on the cusp of a return after missing the previous four games with the upper-body injury. We likely won't know officially until after pregame warmups whether or not Faulk will suit up Thursday, making him a risky lineup choice in daily leagues.

Canes' Faulk Back At Practice

News: Justin Faulk (upper body) returned to practice Wednesday, Michael Smith of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: There's no word yet on the blueliner's status for Thursday's game against the Sabres, but we should know more after that day's morning skate. Justin Faulk racked up three goals and 20 assists in 61 games before getting hurt.

Hurricanes' Faulk To Miss 2-3 More Games

News: Coach Kirk Muller said Justin Faulk (upper body) is expected to miss two or three more games, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: This would seem to line up with GM Jim Rutherford's prediction Monday, when he said he anticipated the defenseman to miss about 10 days with the injury. It doesn't sound like Justin Faulk will be out much longer, and the fact that he wasn't placed on injured reserve Thursday would suggest he should be back soon.

Hurricanes' Faulk (Upper Body) To Miss 10 Days

News: GM Jim Rutherford said Justin Faulk (upper body) would likely miss the next 10 days due to injury, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Rutherford was quick to rule out a concussion for the defenseman, but it appears Justin Faulk's injury is severe enough to keep him out for the next five or six games. The U.S. Olympian was held scoreless in his first three games out of the NHL break but totaled three goals and 20 assists over his first 58 contests this season.

Carolina's Faulk Nursing Upper-Body Injury

News: Justin Faulk sustained an upper-body injury in Sunday's loss to the Ducks, the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Justin Faulk acquired the injury in the first period, skating only 1:46 before leaving for the night. The Hurricanes will reexamine him over the next couple of days, putting his status in question for Tuesday's game vs. the Sharks at the moment.

Canes' Faulk Chasing Personal Scoring Record

News: With four assists in his last seven games, Justin Faulk is just one point away from his career high of 22, scored two years ago in his 2011-12 rookie season.
Analysis: Justin Faulk has seen consistent top-four minutes for the Canes so far this season, averaging almost 24 minutes per game, including 2:21 on the power play. And it's not hard to see why - not only does he chip in offensively, he is also third on the team in blocked shots with 76, and fifth in hits with 75, so he's doing his job defensively as well, which coaches love. He makes for a decent middle-tier d-man option in medium to deeper formats.

Canes' Faulk A Shooting Machine In Win

News: Justin Faulk recorded a season-high seven shots on goal in Thursday's overtime win over Washington.
Analysis: Though Justin Faulk was held without a point, he also finished the night with two hits and two blocked shots. The 21-year-old has 16 points in 41 games this season and seems destined to smash his career-high of 22 points, set in 2011-2012.

Faulk Scores In Canes' Loss To Maple Leafs

News: Justin Faulk scored his third goal of the season during Sunday's 5-2 loss to Toronto. It was just his second point in his last 10 games.
Analysis: Despite his recent scoring drought, Justin Faulk still has 16 points on the season thus far, and is well on his way to topping the career-high 22 points he posted two seasons ago. Overall, the 21-year-old Faulk is seeing a rapid development in his game and is quickly becoming a key role player for the Canes. He continues to skate on the team's first defensive pairing alongside Andrej Sekera and sees upwards of 24 minutes per night, including 2-3 minutes per game on the power play.

Canes' Faulk Struggling To Contribute Offensively

News: Justin Faulk went pointless for the fifth consecutive game Saturday against Phoenix, but was a plus-3 on the night along with four PIM, two hits and a blocked shot.
Analysis: Justin Faulk continues to add to his peripheral stat totals, but the point drought is starting to become a concern for fantasy owners. Nonetheless, he is still the Canes' top defenseman in terms of ice time, averaging over 24 minutes per night, including 2:35 on the power play. Bottom line, as long as he keeps seeing big minutes, the points should come. Keep him in your lineups.

Hurricanes' Faulk Notches Two Assists

News: Justin Faulk had two assists and was a plus-3 Sunday versus the Senators.
Analysis: These are Justin Faulk's first points in 10 games, and he only has eight points on the season.

Canes' Faulk Struggling To Put Up Offense

News: Justin Faulk has zero points in his last five games, yet continues to average almost 24 minutes per night playing the first d-man pairing alongside Andrej Sekera.
Analysis: After scoring four points in his first four games, Justin Faulk has since been stone cold offensively, with just two helpers in his last 15 games. Perhaps more alarmingly, he's also displaying a distinct reluctance to shoot the puck lately, with just four shots on goal over his last eight games, compared to a combined 23 over the first 11 games of the season. Faulk entered the season as one of the league's strongest breakout candidates among defensemen, but so far he has failed to live up to that promise. Bench him in favour of other options if you have them.

Hurricanes Promote Faulk To Top Defensive Pairing

News: Justin Faulk has been enjoying good chemistry with blue line partner Andrej Sekera, the Raleigh News & Observer reports. "They're in sync," coach Kirk Muller said. "As a pair they've been very effective."
Analysis: Over the past several games, Justin Faulk and Sekera have become the Canes' top defensive pairing. They're logging major minutes on the ice at key moments of games and also contributing on the power play and penalty kill. At 25:02, Faulk's average ice time per game is roughly a minute more than he saw last season, and with five assists in eight games, he's on pace for a record season scoring-wise. Don't hesitate to put him in your fantasy lineup and keep him there until further notice.

Canes' Faulk Notches Two Assists In Loss

News: Justin Faulk contributed two assists in Friday's season-opening overtime loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: Along with the two helpers, Justin Faulk knocked down four shots, two hits and two PIMs to earn the game's third star. By defenseman standards, the 19-year-old was a fairly reliable source of points last season and should grow into an even better offensive player in his third season with the Canes.

Canes' Faulk On Four-Game Streak

News: Justin Faulk scored a goal and was plus-3 in a 5-3 loss to the Flyers on Saturday night. He's now on a four-game, five-point scoring streak.
Analysis: He has offensive talent and he's showing it right now with two goals and three assists in those four games. He's also plus-6 with 16 shots in those games.

Faulk Has Two-Point Night For 'Canes

News: Justin Faulk scored his first goal since March 3 and added an assist in Tuesday's loss to Ottawa.
Analysis: Though Justin Faulk has only 13 points this year, he's got a history of offensive production, including 24 points in 31 AHL games this season. The 21-year-old is a good one for keeper leagues, but certainly can't be relied upon right now.

Hurricanes Activate Faulk

News: The Hurricanes have activated Justin Faulk (knee) from IR, ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Justin Faulk, who missed nine games with a sprained right MLC, returns to the Hurricanes' lineup with 10 points in 28 games to go along with a plus-4 rating. In a corresponding move, the Hurricanes sent fellow defenseman Brett Bellemore to AHL Charlotte.
