Canes' Sekera Assists In Win Over Stars

News: Andrej Sekera added an assist - just his seventh point of the season - during Tuesday's 6-4 win over Dallas.
Analysis: After registering a career-high 44 points last season, Andrej Sekera has taken a step back this year, currently on pace for just 30-35 points. There was much talk coming into this season about whether last year's production was an aberration, and thus far, that looks to be the case. Bottom line, you should not be counting on Sekera as one of your first tier fantasy defensemen, outside of very deep leagues.

Canes' Sekera Picks Up Assist

News: Andrej Sekera added an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 victory over the Blue Jackets in 24:22 total ice time.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera has yet to find the back of the net himself this season after last year's personal best of 11, but he's now racked up five assists in ten games. Holding down the first defensive pairing with teammate Justin Faulk, the assist opportunities should continue to be there.

Hurricanes' Sekera To Play Tuesday

News: Andrej Sekera (upper body) will play in Tuesday's game against the Jets, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' website reports.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera missed the Hurricanes' last game due to the setback, but he will return to action after making it through Tuesday's morning skate without issue. Expect him to be part of the Hurricanes' top defensive pairing moving forward.

Canes' Sekera Practices Friday

News: Andrej Sekera (upper body) practiced Friday.
Analysis: The extent of Andrej Sekera's involvement in practice isn't known, but with the Hurricanes' next game still four days away, it looks like there's a realistic chance he'll only miss one contest due to the upper-body injury. The team will monitor his progress in practices the next few days before determining his availability for Tuesday's game against the Jets.

Hurricanes' Sekera To Sit Out Thursday

News: Andrej Sekera (upper body) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Rangers, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Two days after suffering a nasty collision with the end boards, Andrej Sekera was on the ice for morning skate, but was apparently too sore for the Hurricanes to risk playing him Thursday. On a positive note, Sekera appears to have escaped serious injury, save for a few bumps and bruises. After Thursday's match, the Hurricanes won't play again until Oct. 21, which could afford Sekera enough recovery time before returning to the lineup.

Hurricanes' Sekera Not Ruled Out For Thursday

News: Though Andrej Sekera (upper body) wasn't able to practice Wednesday, coach Bill Peters hasn't ruled him out for Thursday's game against the Rangers, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera was cleared of any structural damage to his shoulder when he collided with the end boards Tuesday night, but Peters noted that while fairly close to a return, the defenseman is still "very sore." It seems more likely than not that the Hurricanes would hold Sekera out Thursday with a long break in their schedule to come thereafter, but the news is nonetheless encouraging for the blueliner, who looked to be at serious risk of a long-term absence.

X-Rays Negative For Carolina's Sekera

News: Coach Bill Peters said that X-rays performed on Andrej Sekera after Tuesday's game came back negative, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: While it appears Andrej Sekera was able to avoid structural damage to his body after colliding with the end boards in the first period of the loss to the Sabres, the blueliner's head and shoulder still absorbed significant impact. As a result, Sekera could face further evaluation for a concussion over the next several hours, putting his status for Thursday's game against the Rangers in peril.

Carolina's Sekera Leaves With Upper-Body Injury

News: Andrej Sekera was removed from Tuesday's game with an upper-body injury and will not return.
Analysis: Facing off against his former team, Andrej Sekera took a hard collision into the boards while attempting to deny a Sabres goal, with his head appearing to take the brunt of the blow. The Hurricanes will evaluate him with the hope that he avoided a concussion, but there's legitimate concern that he could miss some time. The Hurricanes are painfully thin on both quality blue liners, and any absence by Sekera would only further illuminate that deficiency.

Canes' Sekera Off To Strong Start

News: Andrej Sekera dished out two assists, while logging a team-high 22:08 of ice time in Friday's loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: A good start for Andrej Sekera, who is coming off a career-high 11-goal, 44-point season in 2013-14. Although the Hurricanes will likely be challenged to score goals in 2014-15, Sekera can still be counted on for reliable point production, playing on the top defensive pairing and first power-play unit.

Hurricanes' Sekera Fully Healed From Injury

News: Andrej Sekera said Wednesday that he's fully recovered from his April abdominal surgery, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Despite missing eight games due to injury, Andrej Sekera turned in the best season of his career in his first campaign in Carolina, netting 11 goals and 33 assists to go along with a plus-4 rating. Though he'll seemingly enter 2014-15 with his health intact, Sekera's modest offensive output during his prior six seasons in Buffalo should give fantasy players pause in paying for last season's numbers. It's probably within his abilities to make another run at 40 points, but there's an equally good chance he played over his head last season based on what his larger career sample size would suggest. He'll open the year on the Canes' top pairing alongside Justin Faulk.

Canes' Sekera Out Six Weeks

News: Andrej Sekera recently underwent abdominal surgery, from which he's expected to recover in approximately six weeks, the Canes' official website reports.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera's season will end a bit early, but he still had a great year, and should have plenty of time to get healthy before 2014-15. He wraps up the career-best season with 11 goals, 33 assists, 127 blocked shots, 54 hits, and a plus-four rating in 74 games. Fifteen of his 44 points, including four goals, came on the man advantage.

Canes' Sekera Out Again Thursday

News: Andrej Sekera (lower body) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Capitals.
Analysis: The blueliner will miss his fourth straight game with the injury and at this point, it wouldn't be surprising if he missed the final two games of the season, either. The lower-body ailment won't tarnish what has been a career season for Andrej Sekera, who has totaled 11 goals and 33 assists in 74 games.

Canes' Sekera Out For Tuesday

News: Andrej Sekera (lower body) will not play Tuesday against the Rangers, Mike Maniscalco of WRAL The Fan reports.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera, who's broken out for 11 goals and 33 assists in 74 games this season, will miss his third straight game Tuesday when the 'Canes head to Madison Square Garden. He could return Thursday for the team's last home game of the year against the Capitals.

Canes' Sekera Out Saturday

News: Andrej Sekera (lower body) will not play Saturday against the Devils, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer reports.
Analysis: A lower-body injury has interrupted Andrej Sekera's career year, as he's set to sit Saturday for a second straight game. His status for Tuesday's matchup against the Rangers is uncertain, but if he can't make it, the team could opt for an IR stint.

Andrej Sekera

Canes' Sekera Out Thursday

News: Andrej Sekera missed Thursday's game because of a lower-body injury, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera has frequently logged upwards of 25 minutes on the ice in recent weeks, but the Canes didn't have any problem replacing him in a 4-1 win over the Stars on Thursday. The story will likely be different -- both for the team and fantasy owners -- if Sekera misses time beyond Thursday.

Canes' Sekera: Career Year Continues

News: Andrej Sekera's career year continued Saturday when he picked up two more assists in a win over Winnipeg. He has eight assists in his last 10 games and 44 points, including 11 goals, in 69 games this season.
Analysis: His previous best ever tally was 29 points and that was back in 2010-11. And he's on track right now to crest the 50-point plateau. Yes, the 50-point plateau. Go figure. Use him well.

Points Rolling In For Canes' Sekera

News: Andrej Sekera grabbed an assist for the third consecutive game in Thursday's 4-2 win over Buffalo, giving him 41 points on the season.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera remains one of the league's breakout stars on the blue line and has done most of his scoring this season at even strength. We saw a flash of this several seasons ago in Buffalo, but that didn't really work out; now, Sekera is enjoying life in Raleigh.

Sekera Streaking For Hurricanes

News: Andrej Sekera tallied two assists and went plus-3 in Tuesday's overtime victory in San Jose.
Analysis: He assisted on the game-tying and game-winning tallies, pushing his point streak to five games, dating back to before the Olympics. With 11 goals and 38 points for the season, Andrej Sekera continues to prove his doubters wrong.

Carolina's Sekera Still Delivering

News: Andrej Sekera scored his ninth goal of the season in Friday's win over Florida. The tally came on the power play and he put six shots on goal in the win.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera is still delivering consistent offensive production for The Hurricanes with every point further establishing a new career best. He sits with 32 points through 54 games and has been quite consistent this season. Those in Olympic pools will want to look toward Sekera as he figures to see many scoring chances for his native Slovakia.

Hurricanes' Sekera Tallies Two Assists

News: Andrej Sekera tallied two assists in Saturday's win over the Senators.
Analysis: With a goal and five assists over his last three games, it doesn't appear as though Andrej Sekera's breakthrough season is losing any steam. His 30 points have already surpassed his previous career high of 29 set with the Sabres in 2010-11, requiring 27 fewer games to do so.

Canes' Sekera Notches Three-Point Game

News: Andrej Sekera had one goal and two assists in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Sabres.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera's second assist came on an empty-netter, but fantasy owners will take it all the same. His goal put the Canes ahead 4-3 in the third period and would ultimately stand as the game-winner. Sekera has four points in his last two games, after suffering through a six-game point drought in mid-January.

Sekera Strong In Carolina Win

News: Andrej Sekera assisted on two of Carolina's goals in Tuesday's win over Montreal, also putting seven shots on goal.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera's career season continues in Raleigh and he has four points in the last three games with 17 shots on goal in the last four. He's been a tremendous value for owners that snagged him on waivers or late in their drafts.

Sekera Grabs Assist In Carolina Loss

News: Andrej Sekera assisted on a power-play goal in Carolina's loss to Washington Friday.
Analysis: Andrej Sekera continues to be a quietly productive player on a maddeningly inconsistent team. He has not gone more than two games without a point since early November; his 19 points have him on pace to fly by the career high of 29 he notched three seasons ago in Buffalo.

Productivity Continues For Carolina's Sekera

News: Andrej Sekera grabbed a pair of assists and was plus-1 in Tuesday's overtime loss to Edmonton.
Analysis: The heretofore unexciting 27-year-old defenseman has been red-hot over his last nine games, collecting three goals and seven assists in that span. It's hard to expect him to maintain any such rate, but he's seeing major minutes for the 'Canes and looks like he could quite reasonably make a run at 40 points. His career high is just 29.

Andrej Sekera

Canes' Sekera Probable For Tuesday

News: Andrej Sekera (upper body) is considered probable for Tuesday's game against the Capitals, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Coach Kirk Muller will see how Andrej Sekera feels in warmups just to be on the safe side before declaring him active Tuesday. Sekera demonstrated that he was healthy during Monday's full practice and looks to be in good shape after missing the last two games with the injury.
